Published Sep 13, 2010Beloved Scottish post-rockers Mogwai have released the majority of their past albums with Matador Records. Now, the group have jumped ship from one celebrated indie imprint to another, as they have just signed a deal with Sub Pop.
In a message posted on their official website, they wrote, "We are happy and proud to announce that Sub Pop Records are releasing our next studio album in North America."
They added, "We would like to take this opportunity to thank and pay tribute to our previous American home Matador Records. They remain great friends of the band and we want to thank them for everything they have done for us over the last 11 years and wish them all the best for the future."
The band's currently untitled seventh LP is nearing completion, as it is being mixed at Glasgow's Castle of Doom Studios by returning producer Paul Savage. It's due out sometime in early 2011. In Europe, it will come out via Rock Action, with Hostess handling the Japanese release.
