MONO Tour 2011 Dates Announced

Written by Brayden Darke on July 13, 2011

Japanese Post-rockers MONO have announced some tour dates along with their appearance at the Melbourne International Arts Festival. Called Electrical Soil 2011.

Blurring the boundary between art-metal and neo-classical, and hailing from Tokyo, MONO have long established themselves over the past 12 years as the leading voice of epic majestic noise. Their instrumental compositions are powerful, sweeping studies in the limits of the musical spectrum; from rumbling subsonic lows to dizzying harmonic highs.

More recently MONO’s sound has dynamically shifted into something bigger and more cinematic, none more so than during their special New York concert where they elevated their already legendary live show with a 24 piece orchestra entitled “MONO and The Holy Ground Orchestra”. So far they have performed it in Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, London and New York (as documented in the Live CD/DVD release ‘Holy Ground’ on Temporary Residence) … and will include an exclusive Australian version for the Melbourne International Arts Festival on this 2011 tour.
