Japanese instrumental rock quartet Mono is gearing up to release its newest creation, a five-song double-album titled For My Parents, on September 4 via Temporary Residence. In support of this album, Mono will be heading out on a huge North American tour, starting in Pittsburgh, PA, on September 11, then crossing the country and back to finish in Philadelphia on October 27.
 
For My Parents was recorded in New York with the accompaniment of the Wordless Music Orchestra. The first track to be released, “Dream Odyssey,” is an eight-minute epic of swooning strings and soft melodies, creating a beautifully filmic score. To see what else Mono has come up with, check out the trailer for the new album below, as well as a complete list of fall tour dates.
