plus special guest
– Main Venue –
Mono release their new album ‘Rays of Darkness’ on Oct 24 and will headline a date in Whelan’s on Dec 8th with very special guest Doom-cellist Helen Money. Ticket are on sale now from Wavtickets.ie, Tickets.ie and usual outlets.
Rays of Darkness is the first MONO album in 15 years to feature no orchestral instruments whatsoever. That fact alone is remarkable given the band’s reputation for sweeping, dramatic instrumentals that recall Oscar-worthy film scores. Instead, Rays of Darkness more closely resembles a jet engine taking off inside a small, crowded auditorium. It is MONO’s blackest album ever, a collection of scorched riffs, doom rhythms, and an unexpected contribution from post-hardcore pioneer Tetsu Fukagawa of Envy. The album ends with the smoldering wreckage of distorted guitars and ominous drones playing out a eulogy to the days when MONO shot blinding rays of light through seemingly endless darkness.
Strictly over 18′s, I.D. may be required.
