Mono (stylised as MONO) is a Ja­panese post-rock band, formed in 1999 in Tokyo. The band have re­leased six stu­dio al­bums and spent their early years (1999 to 2003) tour­ing Asia, Europe, and Amer­ica. Dur­ing this time they re­leased two stu­dio al­bums, Un­der the Pi­pal Tree (2001) and One Step More and You Die (2002), on the Tzadik and Mu­sic Mine Inc. record la­bels, re­spec­tively. In 2008, the band took a break, re­turn­ing one year later with a new stu­dio al­bum, Hymn to the Im­mor­tal Wind (2009). The band's style of mu­sic is in­flu­enced by ex­per­i­men­tal rock and shoegaze, and char­ac­terised by the lead and rhythm gui­tars of mem­bers Goto and Yoda, both of whom make ex­ten­sive use of re­verb, dis­tor­tion and de­lay ef­fects. The band's live per­for­mances are noted for their in­ten­sity, both in the band’s play­ing style and in the dy­nam­ics. Mono an­nounced that their forth­com­ing al­bum Re­quiem for Hell will be re­leased in Oc­to­ber. This dou­ble al­bum will rein­tro­duce strings to their sound.
