To celebrate their 10th anniversary as a band - and the release of their acclaimed new album Hymn To The Immortal Wind - MONO and Temporary Residence Limted organized a once-in-a-lifetime concert in New York City.

In association with the esteemed Wordless Music Series, MONO super-sized their already legendary live show with a 24-piece orchestra.

The result was one of the most transcendent concert experiences that most in attendance had ever witnessed, and most who weren't regret missing to this day.

Thankfully, we recorded it! Painstakingly recorded and mixed by famed producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, ISIS, Minus The Bear), Holy Ground brilliantly captures every moment of whispered calm and breathless beauty with patient clarity.

For a decade fans have clamored for a MONO album that matches the catharsis of their infamous live shows, and Holy Ground overwhelmingly delivers.

Included with the album is a stunning live DVD documenting the entire 90-minute performance, featuring live orchestral versions of many of MONO's most beloved songs.

The colors and textures are pushed almost to the breaking point, much like the music itself, as if Michael Mann showed up to a MONO show with five friends and some cameras.

Every effort was made to ensure this document did justice to that truly mind-blowing weekend.

While there's obviously no replacement for being in a room with a thousand strangers all basking in the glorious, ear-splitting glow, Holy Ground possesses a breathtaking magic that serves as the perfect reminder for those who were there, and a fitting tribute for those who weren't.
