Well this is unexpected: Mogwai have split from their longtime label Matador and signed to…Sub Pop? Yep. Here’s the official statement from the band’s site:

We are happy and proud to announce that Sub Pop Records are releasing our next studio album in North America. The album is currently being mixed in Glasgow at Castle Of Doom studios by Paul Savage for an early 2011 release. Rock Action Records will be releasing the record in Europe with Hostess releasing in Japan.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank and pay tribute to our previous American home Matador records. They remain great friends of the band and we want to thank them for everything they have done for us over the last 11 years and wish them all the best for the future.

– Mogwai

So there you have it. Mogwai’s new live album/DVD, Special Moves, is available now.
