MONO, the Japanese instrumental rock quartet who have established themselves as "one of the most distinctive bands of the 21st century" (Pitchfork), have announced their new album, For My Parents, will be issued by Temporary Residence Ltd. on September 4, 2012. There is no doubting a MONO song when you hear it - cinemascopic song structures, engrossing lyrical melodies, sublimely transcendent execution - and no denying their uncanny ability to feel perfectly at home in both pristine symphony halls and dirty rock clubs. For My Parents obliterates that divide, showcasing a sensitivity and maturity that simultaneously acknowledges where they came from and where they're going. Within the rage of distortion and bombardment of feedback, you are just as likely to experience sadness and beauty, light and darkness, chaos and peace, happiness and melancholy. It is MONO’s ability to combine, intertwine and swing back and forth from two such opposite extremes to create an emotional phantasmagoria that makes this band worth experiencing.www.monoishere.com
