Mogwai have revealed that they will release their next album in February 2011.

Set to be the group’s seventh studio album, guitarist Stuart Braithwaite has admitted the as-yet untitled LP will be “interesting”.

“I think it’s going to be an interesting record,” Braithwaite told “Quite often, when we go into the studio our songs are nearly written. There’s almost a tone of a song, but as the whole band, you haven’t realized where it’s going.”

As previously reported, the band will be working on the follow-up to 2008’s ‘The Hawk Is Howling’ with drummer Paul Savage, who also worked on the group’s 1997 debut ‘Mogwai Young Team’.

Meanwhile, the Scottish five-piece will release their first live album, ‘Special Moves’, on August 23.

Mogwai will embark on a UK tour in February 2011.
