Century Media Records has announced the signing of the London, England-based tech-metal quintet MONUMENTS. The band’s long-awaited debut album, “Gnosis”, will be released in August.
Commented MONUMENTS: “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 recently recruited singer Matt Rose after they went through a long, grinding, and global search for a new frontman. “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 MONUMENTS guitarist John Browne.
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 later this month with Dan Weller (SIKTH) for final vocal production and recording.
“Gnosis” was originally supposed to be released last year via Basick Records. MONUMENTS has since split with the U.K.-based label, which issued the band’s debut EP, “We Are The Foundation”, in 2010.
