MONO have long drawn equal inspiration from the light and dark of life,
spawning more than two decades of musical turbulence and melodic
transcendence. Heaven Vol. 1 marks the beginning of a new annual tradition

mountains, but the reason we're still able to continue walking is because of
our loved ones, colleagues, friends and family who quietly stand by us and
giving us courage and strength. We wanted to express our gratitude with this
