We’re thrilled to announce that Requiem for Hell, the anticipated new record from Japanese instrumental heroes MONO, will be publicly played for the first time ever on August 19th at CAVE 45, right after Aluk Todolo’s performance. The record will be released on Pelagic Records on October 14th.

Guitarist Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto commented on the record:

This album is a series of songs from a flood of inspirations in 2015. After writing song after song and giving them titles, we stumbled upon Dante’s Divine Comedy and the story struck a chord with us. Divine Comedy’s story about travelling down to Hell, through to purgatory, then from Heaven to reality, turned out to be the same theme. This is when we decided to use Gustave Dóre’s illustration from Divine Comedy’s last scene as the main cover.

This initiative is part of the Extended Experience and it will be special (we can’t say more to not ruin the surprise).

See you there!
