    Japanese post-rock noise-merchants Mono return to UK shores in November with a double-headline tour with French shoegazers Alcest:

    Mono will headline some, Alcest the rest. Both bands well worth seeing. I've already booked my ticket for the London date, might also do Southampton and/or Bristol. :D


    EDIT: and yes... 'Jovember' is a typo *glares at fat fingers*

    Oh yes. Mono one of my favourite live bands.They've just finished recording a new record with their old friend Steve Albini, so I'm sure we'll get to hear some new songs. I've not heard of Alcest before, but the combination of shoegaze and, uh, heavier influences is intriguing.

    It's a bit early to say because of my work situation, but I'll be going to the Leeds show or, depending on where I am at the time, possibly the Glasgow one. I wouldn't want to miss out entirely though!

    I'll have a wee deek and see if I can manage the Glasgow date- no interest in seeing Alcest, but Mono have been a favourite of mine for years. Haven't done a Glasgow gig since MBV, so it's long overdue.

    Think the Leeds show might be a goer. Oh yes.
