Two post-rock bands of S. Korea, Japan to play joint gig in Seoul
SEOUL, Jan. 13 (Yonhap) — Experimental post-rock bands Mono and Jambinai will play a joint concert in Seoul later this month, according to organizers Friday.
The joint gig will be held Jan. 21 at 6 p.m. at the Platform Changdong 61 in northern Seoul. It is part of Mono’s world tour promoting its ninth studio album “Requiem For Hell” released last October.
Founded in 1999, Mono is a Japanese band whose sound is instrument-heavy and experimental. The band has become a household name in the post-rock scene, along with bands such as Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky.
Jambinai is a three-member Korean band formed in 2009, known for its signature sound from mixing Korean folk instruments with traditional metal and post-rock arrangements.
The band signed with British label Bella Union in 2015 and released the album “Hermitage,” which was received well by critics.
