This event is all ages

Mogwai released their new album Atomic on April 1, via Rock Action. The album is composed of reworked versions of the music recorded for the soundtrack to Mark Cousin’s documentary Atomic: Living In Dread and Promise, which aired on BBC Four last summer.

Atomic is an impressionistic kaleidoscope of the horrors of our nuclear times - protest marches, Cold War sabre-rattling, Chernobyl and Fukishima - but also the sublime beauty of the atomic world, and how x-rays and MRI scans have improved human lives. Mogwai’s soundtrack encapsulates the nightmare of the nuclear age, but its dreamlike qualities too. It is the latest in the band’s series of impressive soundtracks and scores, following acclaimed albums Les Revenants (The Returned) and Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait.

Ages 15+ without a parent

All tickets are non-exchangeable and non-refundable following purchase.

Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite says: “The Atomic soundtrack is one of the most intense and fulfilling projects we've taken on as a band. Ever since we went to Hiroshima to play and visited the peace park this has been a subject very close to us. The end results, both the film score and the record are pieces I'm extremely proud of.”
