MOGWAI Have A New EP Available For Streaming!


Scottish post-rock band, Mogwai have a new EP entitled Earth Division that will be released September 13th. But if you can’t wait that long, no worries! The band has the entire EP available for streaming on The Guardian! Their full length album that came out earlier this year, Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, was phenomenal! It is definitely one of the better records to come out this year. I suggest you pick it up along with the EP. You will NOT be disappointed by either of them!
