Mono announce UK and European tour

Mono band

Mono have announced a UK and European tour with A Storm Of Light and Jo Quail.

Their Blue Blood Moon tour starts on October 1 at the Fleece in Bristol and continues to October 23 at Zil in Moscow.

"This tour is a build up towards the January release of our new record as well as next year's 20th anniversary," Mono guitarist Taka tells Metal Hammer. "We are working on the new record with Steve Albini this July and the first single will be released this September."

“After a much needed break, we are very happy to have a new album coming out in October on Consouling Sound and Translation Loss," adds A Storm Of Light frontman Josh Graham. "We are very much looking forward to touring with Mono, and couldn’t ask for a better tour introduce the new album.” 

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 20 June.
