MONO 20 years of “music for the gods”

Japanese instrumental post-rock group MONO are in the midst of a world tour celebrating their 20th anniversary and are bringing it down under in March of 2020. Mono play the Rosemount Hotel on Wednesday, March 4. Joining MONO as special guest for all shows is British cellist and composer Jo Quail, however, there will be more guests announced closer to the tour date.

Originally formed in 1999, MONO’s unique approach blends orchestral arrangements and shoegaze guitar noise into memorable and emotional epics. Consistently held in high regard by their peers, their music has been praised by media, including NME proclaiming “This is music for the Gods,” which for anyone who’s seen one of their shows, doesn’t seem like so much of an overstatement.

Revered amongst their fans as one of the best live experiences in rock, this marks their first Australian tour in three years, and will be a celebration of the breadth of MONO’s career as well as their latest album Nowhere Now Here.

Nowhere Now Here is out now. MONO play the Rosemount Hotel on Wednesday, March 4. Tickets from
