The Amanuensis

MONUMENTS “The Amanuensis” Artwork by Fall McKenzie and Kris Davidson “The Amanuensis”, MONUMENTS’ sophomore album and follow up to 2012’s critically acclaimed “Gnosis” is scheduled for a release on the following dates: UK / Europe / Australia / NZ: June 23rd, 2014 USA / Canada: July 8th, 2014 “The Amanuensis”, at least the title, was inspired by author David Mitchell’s novel, “Cloud Atlas”. The complex story lines are the perfect analog for MONUMENTS. Musically, the group weave in and out of themes, motifs, and professor-like note calculations with graceful ease. But lyrically “The Amanuensis” comes from a very different place. “The album is about the Samsara cycle,” reveals Browne (guitar). “The cyclical existence of life that we are all bound to.”  The story of “The Amanuensis” is divided in 11 chapters whose titles read as follows: 1. I, The Creator 2. Origin Of Escape 3. Atlas 4. Horcrux 5. Garden Of Sankhara 6. The Alchemist 7. Quasimodo 8. Saga City 9. Jinn 10. I, The Destroyer 11. Samsara Before touring Europe right around the release of “The Amanuensis” with Protest The Hero MONUMENTS will do a quick and exclusive run with support coming from Dioramic for a handful of intimate shows throughout Germany in May.
