Monument have released their second and last single off their highly anticipated debut album 'Renegades'.
The track, titled 'Crusaders', perfectly showcases what Monument does best, fusing the melodic, twin-guitar driven songwriting of the NWOBHM with contemporary production values and musicianship.
Frontman Peter Ellis comments:
"I am particularly proud of this song and I think it shows a different, more Thin Lizzy-inspired, side to us which our fans will really enjoy."
'Crusaders' is a Youtube exclusive and is only available on the band's official Youtube channel:
Renegades is scheduled for release worldwide this May on MGR Music. The album was produced and mixed by Peter Ellis and Akis K. at Angry Bee studios in London. Additional mixing and mastering was done by Scott Atkins (Cradle Of Filth, Sylosis, Amon Amarth).
It features artwork by Stan W. Decker (Blackmore's Night, Stryper) as well as a guest guitar solo in the track "Rock The Night" by Judas Priest guitarist RICHIE Faulkner.
