Ticket Giveaway - MONO - 9.11.12 - Mr Smalls - Show Preview - Concert Preview

MONO will be appearing next Tuesday, 9.11 at Mr Smalls Theater in Millvale. They are touring behind their new album For My Parents that will be released on 9.4 on Temporary Residence LTD Records. The post rock band is again using a full orchestra in recording the new LP as they did the last. This is their first studio album since 2009's Hymn to the Immortal Wind. Their music is characterized by guitar driven soundscapes with emotions of both joy and sorrow. The band likes to describe themselves as 'contemporary classic music', but is much more than their backing band. We are please to be offering a pair of tickets to the show courtesy of Opus One Productions. As usual, just email us at to enter with your name. 

From their press:

Japan’s Mono is back with another album of instrumental beauties entitled “For My Parents” and featuring help from Wordless Music Orchestra. “Dream Odyssey” is a taster of what awaits on the album and let’s just say that it’s a sweeping, heartbreaking, beauty that haunts with it’s widescreen cinematic sounds in the same way as the best work of Explosions in the Sky. If you’re unfamiliar with the band, this is a great place to start. They have a wonderful ability to create epic visions and classic orchestrations within the confines of a single song. The forthcoming album is intended as a gift to the songwriters’ parents. In the album’s press release that had this to say about the compositions, ““We hope that this album serves as a gift from child to parent” … “While everything else continues to change, this love remains a constant throughout time.” Highest recommendation for fans of Sigur Ros, Mogwai, and This Will Destroy You. It’s absolutely stunning.

Show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are $15 and can be found here. More information about the band at these links:
