Japanese instrumental rock outfit MONO are returning to Australia this November.

In the ten years the ban has been touring Australia they have yet to play a show in Adelaide, making sure to change that on this visit, alongside stops in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Perth.

This visit follows their 2016 album ‘Requiem for Hell‘ and will see the band playing music that spans their entire catalogue across a close to two hour long show.

MONO was originally formed in 1999 – their unique approach of blending orchestral arrangements and shoegaze guitar noise in their music has been held in extremely high regard. One of their most monumental achievements 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 55 countries and proudly holds the stake of being one of the most internationally successful bands in Japan. Among their fans, they are revered as one of the best live bands in rock.

In 2016, the band recorded their 9th album ‘Requiem For Hell‘ with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, Chicago and was released worldwide on October 14th, 2016. The album was accompanied by a feature documentary documenting the band’s history through to the current day.

Tickets for the tour are on sale now. Dates and venues below.
