Monuments Releases "Memoirs" Single

Monuments has released the new "Memoirs" single online, which is being sold to help defray the cost of bills for a cancer patient. The single can be purchased at this location or streamed in the player below. Monuments also commented:

"We will be releasing Memoirs via bandcamp as of 20th October. All proceeds will be going to our good friend Laura, who recently found out she has a condition called Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (or PMP), a rare form of cancer of the appendix that effects less than one in a million people. We will be releasing Memoirs to raise money for her as there are very few people in the world who are able to treat this condition and none are in the UK due to its rarity. She will have to travel abroad for the treatment and it will be extremely expensive.

"There will be a minimum donation of £2 for the track, however it'll be possible to give as much as you want, so please give generously. We would like to give a big shout out to Neema Askari, Joe Garret, John G. Sprich, James Monteith, Mel Schmidt, Steve Joh and everyone at Century Media for making this possible so quickly, Thank you. We'd like to raise awareness of this condition, because of it's extreme rarity, it is often misdiagnosed. For further information please read here." More...

Monuments Releasing Single For Cancer Awareness

On October 20th, U.K. act Monuments will sell the previously unreleased track "Memoirs" as a special single to raise money for the treatment of a close friend of the band who has recently been diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer.

Century media comments, "Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (or PMP) is a cancer of the appendix and is so rare that it can only be treated by a small number of specialists, none of whom are in the UK. Treatment must be sought internationally, and the costs are likely to exceed tens of thousands of pounds."

Monuments' Adam Swan (bass) explains: "Hi everyone! We will be releasing 'Memoirs' via Bandcamp as of October 20th. All proceeds will be going to our good friend Laura, who recently found out she has a condition called Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (or PMP), a rare form of cancer of the appendix that affects less than one in a million people.
