Mogwai provided the music for last year’s Storyville – Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise, a BBC documentary about the creation of the atomic bomb. On April 1st, the Scottish post-rock outfit will put out Atomic, a reworked version of that soundtrack, through Temporary Residence.
In support, today the band has released a new video for hopeful single “Ether”. The clip features footage from the Storyville film itself, including scenes of cell growth and the deterioration of the planet’s ecosystems.
Along with the visual, Mogwai have announced their first tour dates behind Atomic. For these shows, which take place in Europe and Asian in May, the group will perform the soundtrack during screenings of the documentary.
