Those yearning for a sweeping guitar anthem or two can rest easy tonight, as Glasgow post-rock band Mogwai announced a set of North American tour dates this morning. The band had to postpone the tour two times, once to a delayed visa and once to poor health, but according to Mogwai’s website the band is now ready for action. Making the announcement bittersweet was the added news that this will be Mogwai’s last major tour, at least for “quite some time.” The pre-order starts February 1 here.
 
You might want to bring along some earplugs: Mogwai is known to unleash a shoegazey wall-of-sound to be reckoned with. Check out a live video and tour dates below, as well as CMJ’s review of the band’s most recent LP, 2011′s Hardcore WIll Never Die, But You Will.
