Super Furry Animals return to active service this spring with a deluxe 15th anniversary reissue of their long out-of-print album Mwng and a series of UK shows – their first since 2009. 

Originally released in 2000 on the band’s own Placid Casual label (between deals with Creation and Sony), the Super Furries career-defining fourth album Mwng was the band’s only Welsh language long player. It reached Number 11 in the UK album charts and was their highest selling record globally up to that point. It remains the biggest selling Welsh language album of all time. On its original release, the record was praised in an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons for its significant part in promoting the language and culture of Wales.  You can listen to ‘Ymaelodi Â'r Ymylon’ from the album HERE

Not only is 2015 the 15th anniversary of Mwng’s release, it is also the 20th anniversary of the band’s first gigs and the release of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (In Space), the band’s first EP. 

Mwng will be re-released in the UK on Friday May 1st (International Worker’s Day) and on May 5th in North America. The reissue comes in several formats. Deluxe editions (vinyl, CD and download) contain five tracks previously released on the US version of Mwng under the name Mwng Bach as well as a previously unreleased Peel session and a full live show recorded at ATP. The album is available to pre-order from Domino and from iTunes. Pre-orders of the physical album from Domino will receive a download of the standard album immediately.

May 2 - Cardiff University Great Hall

May 5 - Glasgow O2 Academy
