Mono streaming new album, announce North American Tour dates

Posted by on January 22, 2019

Japanese instrumental post-rock band Mono’s new album, Nowhere Now Here, is coming out this Friday (25th) via Temporary Residence Ltd. However, you can hear the entire LP four days early, as the band teamed up with Brooklyn Vegan to exclusively stream the record ahead of its release date.

Nowhere Now Here is the group’s overall tenth studio album as they teamed up once again with famed engineer/producer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Jesus Lizard, Bush, and countless others). The follow-up to 2016’s Requiem For Hell features drummer Dahm Majuri Cipolla in his recorded debut with the band and it also marks the first time bassist Tamaki Kunishi has lended her voice, which you can hear on the song “Breathe.” 

Last year, the band unveiled two singles from the album that included a short film featuring and inspired by the song “After You Comes The Flood” came out in collaboration with director Julien Levy. That was followed by a music video for the song “Breathe,” also directed by Levy.

Additionally, Mono has the North American leg for their world tour, which not only celebrates the album’s release but also the band’s 20th anniversary. The new string of dates kicks off on May 15 in Detroit, MI and wraps up June 15 in Chicago, IL. Emma Ruth Rundle will be supporting the band on all dates. Tickets go on sale Friday (25th).
