Ume Monuments

Released: Mar 4, 2014

Formats: CD, LP


Monuments is the follow-up to the trio’s heralded debut full-length album Phantoms, which was released in 2011. The new album was recorded in Seattle, WA at Robert Lang Studios and produced by Grammy® Award winning producer Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Cat Power).

“We didn’t hold anything back with Monuments. I think Adam Kasper really helped us to capture in a sincere and sonically heavy way that freedom we feel live,” said the band’s guitarist and vocalist Lauren Larson. “For me, each song is a sort of commemoration of a different emotion or experience. One song might make you want to bang your head and the next make you want to hug someone you love. I think it’s these wildly different textures that make us a band and make us all human. That’s what we wanted to communicate — something honest and different through a rock record. We really can’t wait to get this one out.”
