Unfortunately, it would appear that vocalist Chris Barretto is parting ways with Monuments. In his wake, Andy Cizek (from the band Makari) will be filling in.

The band issued the following statement in regards to this:

“Today we announce the departure of Chris Barretto from Monuments due to personal reasons.

“We have traveled to every inhabited continent on Earth with Chris through the music of ‘The Amanuensis’ and ‘Phronesis’. These memories that we created together; both positive and negative, will forever remain irreplaceable and at the highlights of our lives.

“For all remaining shows announced and unannounced, we have enlisted the vocal talents of ‘Andy Cizek’ of Makari as a fill in. Andy has many incredible voices and we are more than confident that he will smash the Monuments songs to the standard you have all come to expect. Andy’s debut performance will be at ‘The Haunt’ in Brighton on the 3rd July.”
