Mono - Nowhere Now Here NZ Tour 2020

22 October 2019 - 0 Comments

"New Zealand has always been a special place for us, it's going to be 5 years since the last time we visited this beautiful country. We're very excited to share our music again with you all and celebrate our 20th year anniversary with all our New Zealand fans with a special set. See you soon!" - Taka, Mono

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, that the band’s musicianship and the diverse musical palette has eclipsed the Rock genre and exists within its 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 artists such as My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Mogwai and Deftones.

The band has now completed recording their 10th album ​Nowhere Now Here, which was released worldwide on January 25, 2019 to coincide with their 20 year anniversary. The album was once again produced by the band’s longtime friend Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, Chicago.
