Mike Malyan left Monuments after having drummed in the band between 2010 and 2015 due to a handful of injuries. Malyan was replaced by at first Anup Sastry and then most recently Daniel Lang. Monuments has now announced that not only is Malyan rejoining the band full time, but they're also working on a brand new record.
We're beyond excited to welcome Mike Malyan back to MONUMENTS as our full time drummer.
After 5 years of injuries, leading to surgery and physical therapy he was thankfully able to fully recover and get his ass behind the kit again… exactly where he belongs!
We'd like to thank Daniel Lang (Lango) for the years he put into this band. We played some of our biggest shows together during this time period and created some beautiful memories. Check out his other band 'The Scratch' if you like your music Irish. You'll do nuthin.
We're now deep into writing MONUMENTS IV and have tour dates lined up in Europe and the United States.
Again, put your hands together for the one and only, words McGee himself, Michael Malyan!
The new record will be Monuments fourth overall, and third to feature Malyan. It'll also be their first to feature vocalist Andy Cizek.
