Monuments Line Up October Release For New Album' Phronesis'

Monday, 23 July 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Monuments have confirmed the details of their new album.

The follow up to 2014's 'The Amanuensis' will be called 'Phronesis' and is due out on October 5 through Century Media Records. In a statement, the band said:

“The word Phronesis was a big part of society and philosophy in ancient Greece. Phronesis is wisdom, but a really specific type of wisdom to do with oneself. Wisdom on your practical actions, good judgement, being excellent in character, practical wisdom. Learning what to do and what not to do based on experience, being mindful of everything around you. Something that, at times, all of us can be pretty terrible at.”

Guitarist John Browne added:

“My personal relationship with the meaning of the record starts at ‘Stygian Blue’, which was the second song I wrote for this back in 2015, and it came to be while I was in the darkest place I've ever been in my 32 years. We all had a bunch of issues that needed time to let heal so, in between writing we were, you know, fixing our broken souls.”
