Japanese instrumental rock outfit Mono is returning to Australian shores this November for a string of tour dates. They will be supported by Sydney’s visceral Dumbsaint and a plethora of local talent across the country.
Brisbane’s show will feature Balloons Kill Babies (who just released the EP “Prodromal”), Sydney gets Grun (who released the first record in many years earlier in 2017), Melbourne gets Solkyri and Adelaide gets Last Days of Kali.
The tour is In celebration of ten years since the debut visit to Australia and the band will visit Adelaide for the first time ever, as well as returning to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Perth – adding this – this visit follows the 2016 album “Requiem for Hell” and will feature the band playing music that spans the entire catalogue across a close to two hour show.
Mono was originally formed in 1999 – a unique approach of blending orchestral arrangements and shoegaze guitar noise which has been held in extremely high regard; so much so, that the band’s musicianship was praised. One of the most monumental live memories of the band was a special set of shows with a 23-piece orchestra in New York, Tokyo, London and Melbourne.
