It’s been a big week or so for Andy Cizek who features on Joshua Travis‘ (known for his career with Emmure, Glass Cloud and The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza) new solo single ‘Web of Lies‘, released just last week (alongside Stephen Taranto (of The Helix Nebula). Notably Travis was also a part of Monuments until 2010.
Cizek joined Monuments in 2019, after they released their Phronesis record in 2018, and now the British prog-metal band have announced their fourth studio album In Stasis, set for release on April 15th, 2022 via Century Media Records. It’s worth noting that the ten-track record will include a song featuring Periphery‘s Spencer Sotelo which ought to be a ripper.
The technical riff-lords have just dropped a single for the new record titled ‘Cardinal Red‘ featuring Aussie composer Mick Gordon, who’s kind of a big deal – having worked with Monuments before on ‘Lavos‘ (also on the new album) but also with Bring Me The Horizon on ‘Parasite Eve‘ the DOOM soundtrack, plus a whole bunch of other projects.
‘Cardinal Red‘ is a heavy single, packed with all the prog-djent you’re salivating for, but blended with contemporary and experimental metalcore elements. It’s a particularly heavy track and will leave you really impressed with the next era of Monuments.
Enjoy the new single at midnight local time, and look out for the upcoming video premiere below that.
