Monuments: sign with Century Media Records, band announce new front man
Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of the London quintet MONUMENTS with the band being equally excited to join the family: "We're looking forward to working with Century Media and getting our music to every corner of the world. Expect to have your ears and minds destroyed before the end of 2012. Get ready planet Earth, we're coming to fuck you!"
MONUMENTS are also pleased to announce that singer Matt Rose has joined as the new front man after they went through a long, grinding, and global search. "We have found the perfect guy right here in our own back yard, we couldn't be happier with the work Matt has done so far," says John Browne (guitar). For the past seven months, Rose has been working with the band to make this a monster of an album. Rose will enter Fortress Studios for final vocal production and recording with Dan Weller (SikTh) later this month.
MONUMENTS will continue their work at the forefront of UK Tech Metal. The music combines aggressive angular grooves interwoven with spacious melodic ambience that is punchy yet progressive. The broad vocal spectrum adds a new innovative dimension to their complex musical landscape, merging tight, chaotic grooves, screams and cinematic choruses with hooks that will taunt you for hours. MONUMENTS have already forged their complex soundscapes into the minds of thousands with their 3 track limited edition EP, "We Are The Foundation', reaching out to more than 90 countries across the globe via digital channels.
In the short time since their formation, the quintet has already toured the UK and Europe twice, supporting the likes of WINDS OF PLAGUE as well as Periphery and TESSERACT. More touring is currently being planned.
MONUMENTS are confirmed for:
15.07.2012 (UK) Alton - UK Tech Metal Fest
20.10.2012 (GER) Cologne - Euroblast Festival Vol.8
