Monuments: posts teaser trailer for new video, "97% Static"
UK progressive tech metallers MONUMENTS will be releasing their debut full-length album, Gnosis, this August in Europe and September in North America (see below for release dates by territory). With its groovy, melodic ambience, Gnosis packs a progressive punch, which is further strengthened by the addition of Matt Rose's broad vocal spectrum to the band.

For another preview of Gnosis, fans can listen to the previously released tracks "Degenerate" and "Doxa" online. A play-through of "Doxa," featuring John Browne (guitar), Adam Swan (bass), and Mike Malyan (drums), can also be viewed here.
