Japanese band Mono will release their sixth album this Fall, and it features the Wordless Music Orchestra. It's titled For My Parents, and has a release date of Sept 6 on Temporary Residence. Check out the For My Parents album preview below, as well as a video for Mono's performance in London last year.
"Successfully translating their powerful and violently beautiful live performances on record is no easy feat. Despite their albums' masterful subtleties and majestic walls of noise, the consensus had remained that their transcendent live show were simply insurmountable" is how the label describes the band, which pretty much sums up their wall of sound approach. Mono creates monstrous symphonies that quietly build in intensity, into raging hurricanes of sound. Their 2009 release Hymn to the Immortal Wind is a classic example of that. That eventually was performed in New York as part of the Wordless Music Series, and was backed by a 23-piece orchestra conducted by Jeff Milarsky.
