MONUMENTS Release Lyric Video for New Single ‘Leviathan’


The transcontinental progressive metallers MONUMENTS have released a lyric video for their latest single ‘Leviathan’. It’s taken from their upcoming album “Phronesis”, due for release on 05 October 2018 via Century Media Records.

Check out ‘Leviathan’ here:

The band comments: “It’s the first song Olly Steele and John Browne wrote together and it’s a bit more straight forward and groove orientated than our older material. Lyrically it’s about dealing with negative and destructive people in your life and how hard it can be carrying all that weight around.”

MONUMENTS are happy to announce additional dates for their upcoming “Phronesis EU tour 2018” with special guest Vola as well as Kadinja as support:

Recorded between March and July 2018 at several studios across the globe, “Phronesis” represents yet another evolutionary step in MONUMENTS’ sound. The guitars of Browne and sideman Olly Steele were recorded by Jim Pinder at Treehouse Studios in Derbyshire, England, the drums were recorded and played by ex-drummer Anup Sastry (he’s since been replaced by Daniel ‘Lango’ Lang) at his home studio, while Chris Barretto recorded his vocals with Cristian Machado at Soundwars Studios in Hoboken, New Jersey. “Phronesis” was mixed and mastered by Joel Wanasek at JTW Music in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
