'Nowhere From Here' North American Winter Tour 2019
As the end of 20 year anniversary celebration and the release of the highly praised new 10th album Nowhere Now Here, MONO announces another North American Tour this November, based around the recently announced special anniversary events “Beyond The Past: US” where MONO performs with an orchestra for the first time in a decade. The remaining tour welcomes various supports from Mammifer, The Album Leaf and another (TBA), as well as a special appearance from co-headlining act Black Mountain just in Toronto.
With their third full-length album, Mirror Reaper (Profound Lore, 2017), Seattle’s doom metal duo BELL WITCH have created a truly enormous work – one continuous 83-minute piece unfolding as a single track.
Engineered and mixed by veteran producer Billy Anderson (Swans, Sleep, Neurosis), the duo of Dylan Desmond (bass, vocals) and Jesse Shreibman (drums, vocals, organ) have pushed the band’s sound further than it’s ever gone before. While retaining the monolithic heaviness of their previous releases, Mirror Reaper sees the band explore the more meditative, melancholy, and introspective aspects to their sound through the introduction of long, lonely organ passages and the return of honorary BELL WITCH member, vocalist Erik Moggridge (Aerial Ruin), offering a prominent presence.
Formed by Desmond and ex-drummer/vocalist Adrian Guerra, BELL WITCH released their first self-titled demo in 2011 and partnered with Profound Lore Records for their debut album, Longing, in 2012. The duo’s second LP, the acclaimed Four Phantoms (2015) was recognized as one of doom metal’s triumphs of the year. The band extensively toured in North America and Europe, securing notable festival appearances (Roadburn, Basilica Soundscape, Sled Island, Psycho CA).
