Mogwai have been announced for All Points East 2022, joining the line-up for The National's show on 26 August.

Mogwai have joined the All Points East 2022 line-up just days after King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard's Stu Mackenzie shared a statement on Instagram cancelling their "remaining EU and UK dates" due to "a personal health crisis."

He wrote, "

For the past decade or so I’ve dealt with Crohn’s Disease the best I can. It’s a miracle we haven’t cancelled any shows in the past. But right now, my health is in really bad shape and I need to get home for some urgent treatment. 

I’ve always kept my struggles with Crohn’s private. I guess I didn’t want to be defined by it. And maybe I’m not defined by it, but I’m certainly dictated by it. It’s looming threat has shaped almost every major decision in my adult life. I think about it and plan for it and around it every day. I know a lot of people deal with chronic illnesses. I’m sorry. It fucking sucks. 

Sorry to everybody who bought tickets, to everyone who helped make the shows happen, our crew, our management and agents."
