The Monochrome Set return to Scotland to promote their new album of 'Marc Riley Sessions from 2011 to 2022.'. The band features original Monochrome Set members Bid (guitar/vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with Athen Ayren on keyboards and Stephen Gilchrist on drums.
The Monochrome Set formed in 1978, and were heavily influential in the post-punk scene that evolved after the initial scorched earth of punk. The band's early releases were on the legendary Rough Trade Label before signing with Virgin offshoot Din Disc. They also released several albums on the Cherry Red label, making a notable appearance on that label's well-known "Pillows and Prayers" compilation.
Though The Monochrome Set split in 1985 the next decade saw several reunions for both live gigs and further studio recordings. After a hiatus of over a decade, the band reformed full-time in 2010 and has since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan, and the USA, releasing seven new, critically acclaimed, studio albums. Now in their 46th year, they are beginning a new series of gigs promoting their latest album and playing songs old and new.
