What goes through your mind when you hear the word „Mono“? Stereo?
That would be far too simple. No, the name of the Hamburg-based band fronted by Martin Engler derives from the word Monomania. This is a medical term from the early 1900s and means “partially insane”.

Whoever is set alight by the band’s musical fireworks - which the band definitely ignites live - will ask “Why only ‘partially’ insane?” After all, in the past year Mono Inc. have invaded the scene in a way that could be called “complete insanity”. After having heard the hits “Get Some Sleep” and “Voices Of Doom”, every last dark soul knows the music of the three gentlemen and the lady at the drums...

In spring 2010 the band started their first real headliner tour and toured Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Due to the great success of that tour they played 15 extra shows in the autumn of 2010. To coincide with that tour MONO INC released the EP ‘Comedown’ which stayed in the top ten of the German Alternative Charts for more than 10 weeks.

To close an amazing year the four rockers were invited by Germany’s incredible top act UNHEILIG, to play 21 sold-out arenas all over Germany. MONO INC.’s live performances were a triumph.

Their album “Viva Hades” (released in 2011) represents the next chapter in the world of monomania. Hitting the top 50 album charts, it is a collection of songs heavily influenced by their live shows in 2010. “The energy of all those overwhelming moments on stage went directly into our eleven new songs” says singer and songwriter Martin Engler. After the release of “Viva Hades” the band spent the rest of the year 2011 on the road, playing a mostly sold out headlining tour through Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

2012 the band will be taken to the next level: international shows, gigs at every important festival like W:O:A, Summer Breeze and Deichbrand - and in August the release of their 6th album called “After The War”.

One thing is for sure: everybody who liked “Viva Hades” will love “After The War”.
