Mono with Wordless Orchestra in 2009 (more by Teppel)

Japanese post rockers Mono will release their new album, For My Parents, on September 4 via Temporary Residence LTD. They recorded the album with the Wordless Music Orchestra who backed them for their 2010 live album, Holy Ground. Appropriately, the single which you can stream below, "Dream Odyssey," reaches its heights with soaring orchestral pieces rather than the distortion that filled their last studio album, Hymn to the Immortal Wind. Also below is the cover art and an album trailer.

The band will be supporting the new album on an extensive international tour which hits NYC on September 14 at Le Poisson Rouge and September 15 at Glasslands. Tickets for the LPR show and the Glasslands show are on sale now.

A list of all dates, stream, video and cover art below...
