(London, U.K. – January 26, 2022) – Transatlantic progressive metal outfit MONUMENTS are thrilled to announce their fourth album, In Stasis, which is set for a release April 15th, 2022.
“We approached this album without the intention of a specific concept. However – three songs in, what was being written ended up sharing a common theme. This feeling of being stuck in the middle, a feeling we experience throughout our lives – within friendships and relationships, love to hate, life to death, belief or non-belief, being in power to total defeat, isolation to freedom. Over the past 2 years, we have been faced with many of these trials, and these struggles can be heard throughout the record. This record is a culmination of our greatest triumphs and our deepest struggles. We hope it resonates with you, and brings you closer to equilibrium. We’d like to thank guests Neema Askari (Form Subtract, ex Fellsilent, ex-Monuments), Spencer Sotelo (Periphery, King Mothership), and Mick Gordon (DOOM, Prey, Killer Instinct) for enhancing the record with their unique perspectives,” states MONUMENTS.
In Stasis tracklist:
1. No One Will Teach You (feat. Neema Askari)
3. Cardinal Red
6. Arch Essence (feat. Spencer Sotelo)
8. False Providence
9. Makeshift Harmony
10. The Cimmerian
New music and the pre-orders will be available shortly. In the meantime, check out MONUMENTS previously released track “Lavos” feat. Mick Gordon, which is the first track released off the band’s forthcoming album, HERE.
