Ex-Monuments singer: "I will not miss the band"
Matt Rose, former vocalist of Monuments, has issued a statement regarding his recent departure from the band. Notably, Rose's seems to be on less than friendly terms with his ex-bandmates. Here you go:
"I actually left Monuments before the Born of Osiris tour started but decided to carry on for the best of the tour. I was growing increasingly frustrated at the work ethic of the band and at how little music everyone wrote. On our return from the tour we mutually agreed that it was best for everyone including me that we parted ways. I'm not sad at all about this ending and I certainly will not miss the band and all its dramas. My only disappointment comes from the bad blood that seems to have arisen since my departure, which is completely undeserved as I worked very hard whilst I was in the band. "'The core of man's spirit comes from new experiences' and I'm already very excited about starting other new musical projects and I'm very much looking forward to hitting the road and playing live with the Qemists who will be supporting Hadouken on their UK tour in April and will be playing festivals in Europe this summer. "My thanks and appreciation goes out to anyone who came to a show, bought a t-shirt or an album, or bought me a whiskey whilst I was in the band. I'd also like to thank my label Century Media and Avocado Booking and John Sprich at Euroblast for all their hard work."
