The Tokyo, Japan based 4-piece instrumental Rock band MONO was originally formed in 1999. Their unique approach of combining moving orchestral arrangements and shoegaze guitar noise is held in extremely high regard; so much so, the the band’s musicianship and diverse musical palette has eclipsed the Rock genre and exists within it’s own realm.As British Musical Magazine NME once stated, “this is music for the Gods”. A particularly monumental live memory of the band was a special set of shows with a 23 piece orchestra in New York, Tokyo, London and Melbourne.

Their annual world tour consists of around 150 shows. The band has now visited over 57 countries (and counting) and proudly holds the title of being one of the most internationally successful bands in Japan.Both critics and fans of Rock music agree that MONO are one of the best live bands in existence.

Now in 2019, the band welcomes a new drummer, Dahm, and begins a new journey. Earlier in the year the band was invited to London’s Meltdown festival as one of the headliners, personally requested by the 2018’s curator, Robert Smith of The Cure. The band shared the stage with such artists as My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Mogwai and Deftones.

The band has now completed their 10th Album ” Nowhere now here” which was released world wide on 25 January 2019 to coincide with their 20th anniversary. The album was once again produced by their long time friend, Steve Albini, at Electrical Audio, Chicago.
