Monuments Postpone North American Tour

Monuments have postponed their North American tour with Skyharbor and Vespera due to the coronavirus pandemic. The shows will be rescheduled at a later date.

Monuments commented:

“It is with a heavy heart that we must postpone our upcoming US tour.

Given the pandemic and it’s circumstances, we just can’t make this tour happen from either a logistical or safety perspective.

We will update everyone with new dates in the coming months, once it is apparent that it is safe to gather again, we will bring this tour to you!

Refunds will be available from point of purchase, but we ask you please to consider holding on to them, as they will be valid for our rebooked shows. This will help mitigate the difficulties for all of the amazing promoters and our agency who have worked so hard to make this tour happen.

We can’t wait to groove with you in the near future.

Stay safe,

Monuments Premiere “Animus” Music Video

Monuments have premiered a new video for their new song “Animus.“ Frontman Andy Cizek commented:

“Hey Y’all’, We’re excited to show you our new track ‘Animus‘. Lyrically, this song explores overcoming anxiety. Embracing your burdens and letting them flourish into a positive driving force. Thus, these demons became my ‘Animus‘. Thanks for listening.”

Drummer Mike Malyan Rejoins Monuments

Monuments have officially welcomed Mike Malyan back to the band. The drummer originally left the group in 2015 due to back and shoulder injuries.

Monuments commented:


We’re beyond excited to welcome Mike Malyan back to MONUMENTS as our full time drummer.

After 5 years of injuries, leading to surgery and physical therapy he was thankfully able to fully recover and get his ass behind the kit again… exactly where he belongs!

We’d like to thank Daniel Lang (Lango) for the years he put into this band. We played some of our biggest shows together during this time period and created some beautiful memories. Check out his other band ‘The Scratch’ if you like your music Irish. You’ll do nuthin.

We’re now deep into writing MONUMENTS IV and have tour dates lined up in Europe and the United States.

Again, put your hands together for the one and only, words McGee himself, Michael Malyan!

Bless Bless

Monuments have officially recruited Andy Cizek (Makari) as their new vocalist. He will be taking over for Chris Barretto, who exited the band in July.

The group commented

“Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please open your arms and give your love, encouragement and support to welcome the newest member of the Monuments family. We’d officially like to welcome Andy Cizek as vocalist of Monuments.

It became immediately apparent that Andy would fit the band; not only as an incredible vocalist but also personally. We’ve already written new music with him, we are beyond exited for you guys to hear what we’ve been cookin’!

Secondly, please visit our new merchstore with new threads!

It’s pretty common for band merch to be printed on the cheapest possible option, but from this day forth we have decided to print on the highest quality garments.

Stay tuned for new merch drops over the coming weeks as we have a lot coming up!

We’d like to give a big shout out to Alex Birks, Isidoro Acquaviva, Ali Richardson and everyone at Allotment Productions for their hard work in bringing new merch and the merch store to light!

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.”
