Infio: On Australia's west coast home to heavyweights such as Miles Away, Break Even, BlkOut and burial site to God himself, Bon Scott, comes Monuments, an up beat, modern run of Pop Punk/Punk Rock music which mixes, balls and determination with catchy melodies, resembling bands such as No Trigger, Lifetime and Living With Lions to name a few, which Monuments themselves refer to as influences.
The four piece band (Caz Matarazzo; Vocals, Mark de Souza; Guitar, Carl Diggins; Bass and Aaron Brock; Drums) released their 4 track demo in March 2011 managed to quickly establish a foundation for its modernized take on the genre while keeping the attitude and spirit that is punk rock.
After supporting sold out shows with Dees Nuts, Mandalay Victory, Tonight Alive and Skyway between May and July 2011, Monuments set off to Brisbane in August 2011 to record their debut 7 track E.P. â€œThe Only Way We Knowâ€, with Dan Field @ Studio 454 (Skyway, Milestones, The City Ignites) which was released nationally through Takedown Records January 2012.
With an Australian tour with label friends Milestones in January 2012 already under their belt, looking to take on the East Coast again throughout 2012 and plans for a full length release late in the year, Monuments are looking to make a name for themselves in a genre that at present is taking over Europe and America and is only a matter of time before it hits Australia hard in the face.
