Japanese post-rock outfit MONO have released a brand new single!
The track, titled Ely’s Heartbeat, is taken from the band’s upcoming record, Requiem For Hell, which is set for release in October.
Listen to Ely’s Heartbeat here:
Speaking about the track, guitarist Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto says, “Our long-time friend Jeremy (the owner of our American label Temporary Residence) recently had his first-born, named Ely. Jeremy had been sending us photos and her heartbeats from long before she was born. When Ely was born, we decided to dedicate one of our songs to her, with hopes of her listening to it when she is grown up, and decided to use her heartbeats as an intro on Ely’s Heartbeat.”
Requiem For Hell was written entirely by Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto and the album artwork and tracklist can be viewed below:
01. Death In Rebirth
03. Requiem For Hell
04. Ely’s Heartbeat
05. The Last Scene
