Matthew Rose has issued a statement regarding his departure from Monuments:
I actually left monuments before the BOO tour started but decided to carry on for the best of the tour. I was growing increasingly frustrated at the work ethic of the band and at how little music everyone wrote. On our return from the tour we mutually agreed that it was best for everyone including me that we parted ways. I’m not sad at all about this ending and I certainly will not miss the band and all its dramas. My only disappointment comes from the bad blood that seems to have arisen since my departure, which is completely undeserved as I worked very hard whilst I was in the band.
“ The core of man’s spirit comes from new experiences” and I’m already very excited about starting other new musical projects and I’m very much looking forward to hitting the road and playing live with the Qemists who will be supporting Hadouken on there UK tour in April and will be playing festivals in Europe this summer.
My Thanks and appreciation goes out to anyone who came to a show bought a t-shirt or an album or bought me a whiskey whilst I was in the band. I’d also like to thank my label Century Media and Avocado Booking and John Sprich at Euroblast for all there hard work.

Eh, at least this parting note actually makes sense

Boy needs to learn his "their"s from his "there"s, but otherwise it just sounds like a shitty situation.

What kind of band doesn't want to write music?
The only direct note I have ever read.

I've definitely been in bands with this situation where some member's work ethics eventually brought the band down. It's tough finding all the right members, not everyone has the work ethic to be a dedicated member in a serious band.

Yeah I would leave if I was him too.
Never heard of them.

It's fucking hard enough finding people who like the same music, let alone have the same musical aspirations and motivation. Kinda feel sorry for the guy but he already has a foot in so he'll be fine
Was trying to get twitter followers prob.
No one writing music. Bunch of hacks.
He did say something but without tantrum and with a a gentlemanly approach to the matter. I appreciate it, while I hardly believe that the guys aren't committed to the band (they played two new songs in their last tour) and they toured almost continuously in the past few months..
Shame, they were starting to look really good with this guy

I'm not going to lie I have been in bands like this and I completely understand his bitterness towards his departure. The only fucked up thing is that he said "I certainly will not miss the band" , thats kind of a punch in the dick because being in a band is more than just a work ethic. You become a family. And he pretty much just spit in their face saying he won't miss them. I can't wait to hear his new project though.

Do we have to remember that the dude deleted both the Youtube and e-mail account of the band? The statement honestly doesn't fit that much, of course there was bad blood involved.
