One of the definitive live acts of the last 25 years Mogwai have announced a run of UK tour dates including Gateshead for the first time in over a decade following 2021’s #1 album As The Love Continues.
The tour will feature tracks from Mogwai’s 2021 number one record, As The Love Continues, as well as classic Mogwai tracks from their innovative career. The band will be accompanied on tour by Brainiac, who have reformed 25 years after the tragic death of their singer Timmy Taylor, during which time they gathered cult-support from Trent Reznor, The Flaming Lips and Mogwai themselves.
The band recently provided the soundtrack for the Apple TV+ show Black Bird, starring Taron Egerton
(Rocketman). Their score has received praise for providing the ideal backing to the tight and suspenseful turns of the show.

Site preparation works have now commenced on the NewcastleGateshead Quays development, to the east of Sage Gateshead. This means changes to the South Shore Road Car Park, pedestrian and car routes. Find out more.
Brainiac spent the 90s carving their own path directly through every typical musical trope, but just as their trajectory had poised them to present their maniacal vision of hissing electro-punk to the mainstream, the death of lead singer Timmy Taylor cut their story short. In the wake of this tragic event, many artists (such as Trent Reznor, The Mars Volta, Muse, The Flaming Lips, the Breeders, Mogwai, etc) have espoused the band’s lasting influence and relevance as trailblazers whose music still sounds fresh and ahead of its time even today.
Over 25 years later, following a full length documentary about the band along with several recently unearthed archival releases, the surviving band members emerge to celebrate the music and give it life once more both for a new generation and long time fans alike. Don’t miss out while you have the chance. Go freaks go!
