MONUMENTS Parts Ways With Vocalist Chris Barretto Over "Personal Reasons"
After six years and two full-length albums with the band, vocalist Chris Barretto and Monuments have parted ways. Monuments says the split is "due to personal reasons" and that Barretto will be replaced by Makari vocalist Andy Cizek temporarily. Barretto sang for Monuments between 2013 and 2019, and prior to his time with the band, was also the vocalist of Periphery between 2008 and 2010.
Today we announce the departure of Chris Barretto from Monuments due to personal reasons.
We have travelled 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.
Browne, Olly, Swan, Lango.
Barretto has not yet commented on the split.
