Travel Is Dangerous
After spending the first five months of the year on the road playing to sold-out venues in the UK, Japan, the US and Europe, Mogwai will release the "Travel Is Dangerous" EP.
The lead track is taken from Mogwai's most revered, and biggest album to date "Mr Beast" and features multi-instrumentalist Barry Burns on vocals. Two album tracks have been remangled for the release in the shape of Acid Casuals take on the piano-led first single Friend of The Night and Error's new version of Auto Rock.
Two tracks recorded live in Tokyo in January will also be included, the seminal Like Herod and new end of set favourite We're No Here.
