A GLASGOW rock band have announced a hometown show date for later this year. 

Mogawi will be visiting Glasgow Royal Concert hall on November 7 as part of their 10th studio album 'As The Love Continues. 

The album is the band's first number one in the UK Official Albums Chart and number nine on the Billboard's US Top Album Sales Chart - which their first time inside the US Top 40.

Glasgow Times:

Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, said: “We’re unbelievably happy to have the number one album in the UK. We want to thank everyone at Rock Action Records - both of you - and mostly to thank everyone who has bought, downloaded and streamed the album, and supported us over the last week and the last 25 years. It’s something we’re amazed by.

"We’re taken aback by everyone’s support, kindness and generosity.

"It is 25 years this week we released our first single ‘Tuner/Lower’, the first release on our own label Rock Action Records. We didn’t start the band or the label to get into the charts. None of us ever envisaged either the band or the label being in a position where having a number one record would be a possibility.

"We started the label with a loan of £400 from my now-brother in law. Martin’s folks generously helped us out by paying for the studio to record the songs.

"We were just kids that wanted to make an amazing noise and get our record played on John Peel. Amazingly John did play the record, and one thing led to another to get us to the point we’re at now.

"It’s been an incredible journey making music together over the last quarter-century, taking us to places we never dreamed of and getting to play our music to more people than we ever imagined.”
