Part of Robert Smith’s Meltdown

Instrumental post-rock band MONO bring their shoegaze guitar noise and orchestral arrangements to Robert Smith’s Meltdown.

The Japanese four-piece band originally formed in Tokyo in 1999, and have now played in over 55 countries.

Described by NME as ‘music for the Gods’, they are known for their grand post-rock symphonies that teem with crashing guitars and cinematic strings.

After releasing ten successful albums, including a live album with the Wordless Music Orchestra in New York, the band are now one of the most internationally successful bands in Japan.

In 2016, they received the highly regarded Marshall Hawkins Award for Best Original Score (Featurette) from the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema for their 2015 collaborative short film Where We Begin.

The band recorded their ninth album in 2016, Requiem For Hell, inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy.
