For two decades, MONO have defined and refined a kind of orchestral rock that is as emotional as it is experimental. Their 10 studio albums over those 20 years have established MONO as what Pitchfork described as "one of the most distinctive bands of the 21st century". Meanwhile, their live concerts are typically more subdued in instrumentation - and more supercharged in volume and voltage. "Beyond the Past: Live in London with the Platinum Anniversary Orchestra" documents MONO's extraordinary performance from the Beyond the Past event that celebrated the band's 20th anniversary, which took place at the historic Barbican Centre in London, England on December 14, 2019. For that once-in-a-lifetime event, MONO selected a memorable lineup of old and new friends, including fellow Japanese underground icons, Boris and Envy, as well as French post-metal legends, Alcest, and UK collaborators A.A. Williams and Jo Quail. The event culminated with MONO performing with a full orchestra to a rapt, sold-out audience of 2000.
