Blue Blood Moon European Tour 2018 Statement

Hello our friends,

We, MONO, are currently preparing many things for our 20 year anniversary which will be held next year. Last July, we visited an engineer and producer Steve Albini once again and recorded our new album, scheduled to be released next year, with our new drummer Dahm. We will release a new single "After You Comes The Flood" this month from the new album, and start our European Tour next month to accompany the release.

Last year, we were really helped by many of our colleagues and friends, while many issues continued to occur such as the troubles with our Japanese management company and a leave of our member. We received many kind emails from our friends and partners throughout the world, and our partners told us to keep moving forward and suggested us with many ideas and schedules for our 20 year anniversary in 2019. One day, our longtime friend Jeremy from our American label Temporary Residence Ltd. got in touch with us and introduced us to Dahm, our new drummer. He is from America (NYC resident), and we met him for the first time last February in Japan on a still cold day with snows falling. We played 2 of our new songs, which we sent to him earlier, at the studio in Tokyo.

The first time playing together with Dahm was like all of us getting pulled towards something, completely absorbed in this aggressive yet beautiful world that we were playing. When we finished playing the songs, all of us were covered in smiles. We all remember it was a very strong feeling, not like finding the missing piece, but rather, a new sound of MONO appeared out of nowhere in front of us. After the rehearsal, we stepped outside and a bright red moon was floating in the night sky. Yes, the day happened to be indeed that special day that Blue Blood Moon appears once in a decade. We all strongly felt it was a miracle-like day.

As the beginning of our new chapter, we named this tour "Blue Blood Moon European Tour 2018". We all truly feel proud of all our fans and supporters from the bottom of our hearts. Hope to see you all on the tour!

MONOは、来年のバンド結成20周年に向けて多くの準備を進めています。今年の7月に、来年リリース予定のニューアルバムをエンジニア・プロデューサーにスティーブ・アルビ二を再び迎えて、新しいドラマーDahmと共にレコーディングしました。そして今月、ニューアルバムから最初のシングル”After You Comes The Flood”をリリースし、それに伴いヨーロッパツアーを行います。

去年は所属していた日本のマネジメント会社とのトラブル問題や、メンバーの脱退等、様々な問題が続くなか、本当に多くの仲間や友人に助けられました。世界中の友人たちからの親切なメール、また世界中のパートナーが前に進むようにと僕たちの2019年の20周年に向けて色々なアイデアやスケジュールを提案してくれました。
そんな中、僕たちは長年の友人でもあるアメリカのレーベル、テンポラリーレジデンスのJeremyの紹介で、ドラマーのDahmに出会うことができました。彼はアメリカ人です(NY在住)。初めて彼と会ったのは今年の2月、まだ雪が降る寒い時でした。あらかじめ渡しておいた新曲2曲を、東京のリハーサルスタジオで共に演奏しました。僕たちは互いに、まるで何かに引き寄せられたように、4人が奏でる激しく美しい音楽の世界に没頭し、演奏が終わると笑顔になりました。それは足りなかったピースを埋めるというよりは、むしろ新しいMONOのサウンドが目の前に突然現れたような、そんな強い手応えを感じたのを覚えています。
練習が終わったあと、外に出ると真っ赤な月が夜空に浮かんでました。そう、その日は、何十年に一度のBlue Blood Moonがが現れる日だったのです。まさに奇跡のような日だと強く感じました。

今回のツアータイトルはMONOの新しいチャプターの幕開けとして、”Blue Blood Moon European Tour 2018” とつけました。

応援してくれるすべての人達を心から誇りに思います。是非ツアーでお会いしましょう !

Much love,
MONO

Meltdown Festival 2018 - Tickets On Sale Now

We got an offer directly from Robert Smith to our European booking agent. We've been fans of The Cure from many years ago so we were all very surprised. The fact that the artist who you've been heavily influenced by since you were young, listens to your band alone is a great thing, but receiving an offer like this is such an honourable thing.

We will play at Queens Elizabeth Hall in London on June 22 (Friday).

バート・スミスから直接僕たちのヨーロッパのブッキングエージェントに連絡がありました。昔からThe Cureのファンだったのでとても驚きました。影響を受けたアーティストが、自分のバンドを聴いてくれているという事実だけでも嬉しい事なのに、こういった招待を受けて本当に光栄に感じてます。

僕たちは6月22日(金)ロンドンのQueen Elizabeth Hallで演奏します。

Nicolas Buffe "Orphée et les Muses"

Modern artist Nicolas Buffe has recently completed a new stage screen for La Seine Musicale in France. The piece is a motif of Orpheus from Greek mythology, and Taka Goto is used as a model. It's an extremely large and beautiful piece, so do take a look if you get a chance.

現代美術家のニコラ・ビュフがフランスにあるラ・セーヌ・ミュージカルの舞台幕を手掛けました。神話オルフェウスをテーマに描かれた作品のモチーフとしてTaka Gotoがモデルとして描かれています。とても大きな素敵な作品なので、是非機会のある方見にきてください。

Yomiuri Newspaper Article

Thank you Yomiuri Newspaper for introducing MONO.

読売新聞で、MONOが紹介されました。ありがとうございます。

— ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS —

"Loud yet melancholic, effective song structures"

Babymetal and Piko Tarou are not the only ones who are successful overseas. There is a Japanese band who writes their original songs and steadily continue to tour the world.

MONO is the representation of that, originally formed in 1999 by members consisting of Takaakira 'Taka' Goto. The band is known for their instrumental music consisting of loud guitars. Last Autumn, the band released their new album "Requiem For Hell", which was produced by one of America’s highly regarded producers Steve Albini, who also has previously produced for such artists as Nirvana.

The band structure is basic; consisting of two guitars, drums and bass. Depending on the songs, keyboards are incorporated. The new album’s title song was remarkable, and their music was dramatic like Classical music, filled with melancholic melodies. Drums and bass led strong rhythms, and the music kept expanding endlessly.

The song structure of calm to loud, then back to calm was effective. It was easy to get absorbed into their world, even if you were not familiar with the songs. Their flow of sound was intoxicating, like going back and forth between the world of life and death, and light and darkness.

MONO may be far from top chart’s sweet pop music, but they’re definitely worth giving a listen.

Taka launches new solo project - Behind the Shadow Drops

MONO's frontman Takaakira 'Taka' Goto to start a new solo project entitled, Behind the Shadow Drops.

Recently, Behind the Shadow Drops has provided music to PIERRE HERMÉ x NICOLAS BUFFE "A Story of the Kingdoms of the Moon and of the Sun"; a collaborative project between Paris-based modern artist Nicolas Buffe and one of France's highest class pâtisserie brands Pierre Hermé.

This interactive website project is a grand story, portrayed by Buffe's original precise artwork, interweaving with fantasy-like dark musical music written by Behind the Shadow Drops. The story is to be enjoyed by experiencing the interactive world, which is also to develop as time passes.

This original music by Behind the Shadow Drops is scheduled to be released next year worldwide.

MONOのフロントマン、Takaakira 'Taka' gotoが 新たなソロプロジェクトとして "Behind the Shadow Drops" をスタート。

パリ出身の現代美術家、ニコラ・ビュフとのコラボレーションとして、フランス最高級のパティスリー・ブランド「ピエール・エルメ」が発信するアートプロジェクト PIERRE HERMÉ × NICOLAS BUFFEの「太陽と月の王国のものがたり」が展開されているグローバルサイトへ、全曲書き下ろしで楽曲提供しました。

グローバル ウェブサイトでは、Behind the Shadow Dropsのファンタジックでダークな音世界と共に、壮大な物語を独創的で緻密な描写で創り上げている、ニコラ・ビュフのアートワークを中心としたストーリーが順次展開していく予定。
アートと音楽が美しく織り交ざりながら、インタラクティブな仕掛けを楽しみつつ物語の世界観を堪能することができる。

書き下ろしの楽曲は来年アルバムとしてワールドワイドリリースが決定している。

MONO / The Ocean: Transcendental (Split EP)

We’re happy to announce that we will be releasing a split EP with The Ocean via Pelagic Records this October. The album is entitled “Transcendental”, featuring our new song “Death In Reverse” which serves as a trailer for our upcoming 9th MONO album, which is scheduled for an early 2016 release.

"The theme of this track is life and death and regeneration. Even when our bodies decay and decompose, our souls will prevail unchanged. Our bodies will act as seeds for the next generation, while our souls will journey together into our new eternal life. This is the story we want to explore with our next album, a portrayal of our journey through life towards death; from living out our lives proud and high, to bodies immolating, infused with precious memories... and through the vast, noisy tunnel of space, we become pure souls - a single drop of water in the fountain of life.” - Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto

“Transcendental” will be released on Oct 26 (UK) and 23 (Rest of the world), and will be available in LP and Digipak CD format. Pre-order now!

今年10月にPelagic Recordsから初The OceanとのSplit EPを出す事になりました。アルバム名は「Transcendental」、そして新曲「Death In Reverse」は2016年発売予定のMONO9枚目のアルバムのトレイラー的な物として作成されました。

「僕たちの新曲、”DEATH IN REVERSE”はMONOの9枚目となる次のアルバムのトレイラー的なものにした。テーマは、「生と死、そして再生」。人間の肉体は滅びても、魂は決して滅びる事はない。身は滅んでも、次の世代への種を残し、魂は新しい生と共に、永遠に語り継がれる。次のアルバムで僕たちが表現しようとしているストーリーだ。DEATH IN REVERSEでは、誇り高く人生を生き抜き、記憶と共に身体が燃え、ノイズと共に宇宙のトンネルを抜け、魂となり、新しい生命の泉へと帰化するまでの世界を音楽で表現してみた。」 - Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto 

「Transcendental」は10月26日(UK)・23日(世界リリース)にLP・CDフォーマットで発売。先行予約は下記から!

SHELLAC / MONO Japan Tour 2015 Introduction

Shellac will be visiting Japan. As one of their fans, it’s a dream come true. 

MONO has so far created 3 albums “Walking Cloud”, “You Are There” and “Hymn To The Immortal Wind” with Steve Albini.

We have also gotten the bassist Bob to master our albums several times, and since Shellac started curating ATP, we have also played together at several Festivals overseas.

It has apparently been 22 years since their last Japan tour. The first time we met and introduced ourselves to Steve was 12 years ago, which was at his studio in Chicago called Electrical Audio when we did our recordings. I said to him then “There are a lot of Shellac fans in Japan, so we’re waiting for the opportunity for you guys to play a show there. So if there is anything I can do for you, let me know”.

Steve is no doubt an amazing engineer and Shellac is one of the bands we respect the most in the world, because of the bases of their existence, which is DIY (Do It Yourself) and that is also one of our most important “rules” for MONO. Not only is he our admiration, but we can also say that he is our teacher.

This Spring, we received an email from Steve suddenly.

“Taka, do you remember what you said to me 12 years ago? Can we do a tour with MONO in Japan?”

We’re really looking forward to playing together with those cool, humorous geniuses.

Come check us out!

Shellacが来日します。
1ファンとして、夢のようです。 

MONOは、これまでスティーブとアルバム3枚 "Walking Cloud", "You Are There", "Hymn To The Immortal Wind"を作成してきました。

またBassのボブにも何回かアルバムのマスタリングをしてもらっていたり、ShellacがキュレーターのATPを始め、国外のフェスティバルではこれまで何度か共演させてもらいました。

日本でのツアーは22年ぶりだそうです。僕達がスティーブに初めて会って挨拶をしたのは12年前です。
シカゴにある彼のスタジオ、Electrical Audioでレコーディングをした時です。
「日本にはたくさんのShellacのファンがいて、showを待ち望んでいる。だから何か僕に出来る事があったら言って欲しい。」と伝えました。 

スティーブのエンジニアとしての才能はもちろん、Shellacの存在は、僕たちMONOが活動する上で最も大切にしている "ルール" の1つである、DIYスピリット(Do It Yourself) を強く持つ、世界で最もリスペクトするアーティスト/バンドです。
憧れであり、先輩であり、師匠とも言えます。

今年の春、突然スティーブからメールが来ました。

「Taka 12年前に俺に言ってくれた事覚えてるかな?日本でMONOとツアーをやらないか?」

最高のCoolさとユーモアに溢れる天才達との共演とても楽しみです。

是非見に来てください!

Taka

The prints are protected in removable clear polysleeves, and are shipped in rigid, sturdy cardboard mailers with dual-protection cardboard inserts.

"The Last Dawn/Rays Of Darkness" Double Album Release

When we started in 1999, we set out with a simple mission: from bliss to bludgeon, no matter how long or winding the path may be. After “For my parents”, we had finally reached the logical conclusion of that era, it was time to remember where we started and re-think where we were heading!

Less strings? Louder? Quieter? Lighter? Darker? Yes. “The Last Dawn” and “Rays of Darkness” are a pair of new albums. Recorded simultaneously yet conceptually, and creatively disparate, the two act as both opposing and complementary sides to a story. No strangers to narratives, the twin albums explore familiar themes: hope and hopelessness, love and loss, immense joy and unspeakable pain. Those elemental parts of life, and the complicated relationships that we create have, never been more resonant through our music.

MONO史上、最もブラックなアルバム。焦げ付くようなリフ、破壊的なリズム、ポストハードコアのパイオニアenvyのテツ・フカガワとのコラボレーション。終わりのない暗闇に目の眩むような光線を放射する、”Rays of Darkness"

一方、二枚組アルバムの一対でもある ”The Last Dawn" テーマもメロディもより幻想的で希望に満ち溢れ、美しいアルバム、ミニマリストの映画音楽からヴィンテージなシューゲイズまで、その世界は最も純粋なMONOサウンドであり、それぞれがシングルになり得る力強い楽曲が収録されている。

この2つの作品は、人生における希望と絶望、愛と喪失、言葉では言い表せない痛み、計り知れないほどの喜び、概念的に対極となる2面を音楽を通じて鳴り響かせている。
鮮烈な衝撃作、2枚同時リリース!

MONO to sign with Pelagic Records

We have signed with Pelagic Records to release our new album later in 2014 in Europe and the UK. You can read more here: http://www.pelagic-records.com/newsletter/newsletter_02_14.html

Pelagic are also now selling most of our back catalog and some t-shirts on their online shop: http://pelagic-records.com/webshop/ This will offer European and UK fans a more affordable option for ordering LPs, CDs and t-shirts... especially when ordering single items, which are prohibitively expensive from our our US-based online shop.

We're excited to be working with a European label now and hope that it makes our new record easier to get and more affordable for our many fans.  We'll have more news about the new record over the summer and look forward to sharing it with you then!

2014年の終わりにかけて出す新しいアルバムのヨーロッパとイギリスの発売の為、Pelagic Recordsとの契約が決定しました。(英語のみ:http://www.pelagic-records.com/newsletter/newsletter_02_14.html

ヨーロッパ・イギリス居住中のファンの方々、この機会におき、PelagicのオンラインショップからCD・グッズ等が安く購入できるようになりましたのでぜひご覧になって下さい。

新しいアルバムについては夏にかけ更新していきたいと思います。
