Monuments Postpone North American Tour

Monuments have postponed their North American tour with Skyharbor, Greyhaven, and Vespera due to visa issues. The new dates have yet to be announced, but the group did confirm that the trek will take place in April 2020.

The band issued the following statement:

“Hey everyone,

Unfortunately, we come with bad news.

We will be moving our North America tour to April 2020 due to complications with our US Visa’s.

All tickets bought will still be valid for the new dates.

We would of preferred to have said that this happened due to the US government with other bands having difficulty recently but ultimately this is not the case.

On August 17th, our visa’s still hadn’t been applied for, as information was missing from our label.
With an average wait time of 17 days for an embassy appointment in London, 10 days for visa approval and 7 days after the appointment to get passports back, we made the decision to move the tour rather than be any later than we already would have been.

In light of this news, we are no longer affiliated with Go Down Believing Management or Decibel touring.

Not only does this effect you all, by not being able to see us play for a further 8 months. Some of us took these 6 weeks off from work and gave away this work to other people, which most certainly isn’t ideal.

We apologise for this news, but we will be there, stronger than ever. The new dates will be announced very shortly.

Monuments Part Ways With Singer Chris Barretto

Monuments have parted ways with Chris Barretto. The frontman left the group “due to personal reasons.”

The band commented:

“Today we announce the departure of Chris Barretto from Monuments due to personal reasons.

We have travelled to every inhabited continent on Earth with Chris through the music of ‘The Amanuensis’ and ‘Phronesis’. These memories that we created together; both positive and negative, will forever remain irreplaceable and at the highlights of our lives.

For all remaining shows announced and unannounced, we have enlisted the vocal talents of ‘Andy Cizek’ of Makari as a fill in.

Andy has many incredible voices and we are more than confident that he will smash the Monuments songs to the standard you have all come to expect.

Andy’s debut performance will be at ‘The Haunt’ in Brighton on the 3rd July.

Much love,
Browne, Olly, Swan, Lango.”

Monuments Premiere “Mirror Image” Lyric Video

Monuments have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Mirror Image.” This track is from the band’s new album “Phronesis,“ which will be released on October 5. The band commented:

“Lyrically, the song explores the idea of looking back on previous bad decisions, the want to turn back time and change the scenario after understanding the consequences of those decisions … This is collectively one of our favorite songs of the new album! Turn it up!”

Monuments Premiere “Leviathan” Lyric Video

Monuments have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Leviathan.” This track is from the band’s new album “Phronesis,“ which will be released on October 5. The band commented:

“It’s the first song Olly Steele and John Browne wrote together and is bit more straight forward and groove orientated than our older material. Lyrically it’s about dealing with negative and destructive people in your life and how hard it can be carrying all that weight around. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do!”
