With their tenth studio album ‘As The Love Continues’ arriving on 19th February, Mogwai are giving us the latest taste of what to expect, sharing new single ‘Ritchie Sacramento’.
Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite says, “’Ritchie Sacramento’s title came from a misunderstanding a friend of ours had about how to say Ryuichi Sakamoto. The lyrics were inspired by a story Bob Nastanovich shared about his friend and bandmate David Berman who proclaimed ‘Rise Crystal Spear’ as he threw a shovel at a sports car. The song is dedicated to all the musician friends we’ve lost over the years.”
The band will also be performing a special live performance of their new album on 13th February at 8pm, performed and recorded at Tramway in their hometown of Glasgow. Grab your ticket here!
