Having the privilege of hearing the album early for review purposes, I can already say that Monuments‘ sophomore album came out of nowhere to be the catchiest album I’ve heard thus far in 2014. It’s not even a question. The Amanuensis will be the album to beat in 2014 for its genre. Unfortunately, 99% of you haven’t been able to hear much of anything beyond the stellar leading single ‘I, The Destroyer’ so far, but another new Monuments track has made it down the pipeline in the form of a lyric video for the track ‘Origin of Escape,‘ which the band has been performing live at recent shows.
The Amanuensis will be out June 23rd in EU and July 8th in the US. Pre-orders will be rolled out soon, including vinyl!
