Alcest, Mono in co-headline Euro tour


Alcest and Mono will embark on a European co-headline tour this winter.

The run of shows will get underway in Dresden, Germany, on October 27, and wrap up in Brasov, Romania, on December 3.

Alcest’s last studio album was 2014’s Shelter, while Mono released Rays Of Darkness the same year. Both bands are expected to launch their latest albums in the coming months.

Last year Mono released a split recording with The Ocean which featured their track Death In Reverse. Guitarist Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto said it gave an indication of how their ninth album would sound.

He said: “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.”

Tickets for the co-headline tour are on sale now.
