Monuments - Part Ways With Drummer Mike Malyan

British metallers Monuments shared news that their drummer Mike Malyan has decided to leave the band. You can read full statements form the both sides down under.

Comment from the band: "After countless tours, beautiful memories, and many great songs written, it is with heavy hearts that we must announce the departure of our great friend and drummer Mike Malyan. Mike has been with Monuments from the earliest days of the band and we are eternally grateful to have had the opportunity to create and play music alongside him.

"Throughout all the ups and downs, Mike’s unwavering dedication, talent, and spirit has shone through as a beacon of inspiration to us all. We will never forget the love, positivity, and sacrifices he’s made for us and the fans that are so dear to our hearts.

"As fun and rewarding as the band lifestyle can be, our paths in life naturally diverge and shift over time. We fully support Mike’s decision to step down and put his family’s and personal well-being first. From the bottom of our hearts, we love you Mikey, thank you for everything.

"In light of this, our summer festival plans have been postponed to 2025. We will be taking this time to recalibrate, write, and focus on the next chapter of Monuments. Our upcoming US/Canada tour with Leprous and Fight The Fight will still fully go forward as planned. More info on that later."

Sounds like a mutually beneficial decision and it’s always good to see bands that put personal wellbeing over their success. Glad they parted ways amicably.
