Mogwai are set to unveil a brand new collaboration with visual artist Antony Crook.

Mogwai have always had a deeply visual element to their music. The absence of lyrics just seems to trigger something in the imagination, with their output being used as an inspiration for frequent arts projects.

Now Antony Crook has teamed up with the band for a new collaboration. 'Mogwai Japan: Knock For Knock' is a new selection of photos taken by Crooks when travelling with the band during a Japanese tour.

The pair have a close relationship, with the photographer having taken the shot which adorns the band's 2011 album 'Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will'. Showcased in KK Outlet throughout April, the images closely match Mogwai's studio output with the two sharing a similar sense of quiet intensity.

Opening with a private viewing at KK Outlet on April 5th, there will then be a private event at Hoxton Bar & Grill in which the audience can see Antony Crook chat with Mogwai lynchpin Stuart Braithwaite.

Discussing their project, the pair will then present 'Knock For Knock' a new film shot in Japan which features a Mogwai soundtrack.

As a special bonus, the event will also witness the unveiling of an exclusive collaborative feature film project with world record-breaking cyclist James Bowthorpe. Featuring an original soundtrack from Mogwai, the project marks the band's first score since their acclaimed work on 'Zidane'.

Tickets are limited to 2 per person - grab them HERE.
