Mogwai, who recently sold out five nights at London's ICA, have made public the title of their forthcoming fifth studio album (that's discounting the sessions and remixes and extended EPs, the wee busy boys).
Mr Beast will be released in March, and it being touted as containing the hardest songs the band has recorded in some time. The band's US label Matador told Pitchfork that it is "perhaps their heaviest record since Young Team and better than we even hoped". Good news!
The album, the follow up to 2003's Happy Songs For Happy People, has been recorded at Mogwai's own Castle Of Doom studio in Glasgow. Song titles include 'Robocop Vs The Orange Walk' and 'Friend Of The Night'.
The band's manager Alan McGee said: "(Mr Beast is) probably the greatest art rock record that I've been involved in since My Bloody Valentine's Loveless."
