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 onthat labels' 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, their album release count now being well into double figures.After a hiatus of over a decade the band reformed full time in 2010 and have since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA, whilst also releasing four new, critically acclaimed, studio albums. This year, 2018, is the fortieth anniversary of the band's formation and they will be releasing a box set of their first four albums to celebrate this in February, that month will also see the release of their fourteenth, new, studio album, 'Maisieworld', both on the German label 'Tapete'.
