From Monument to Masses is complex and hypnotic post-punk engineered to act as a revolutionary cultural force in service of the People. The band, the sampled sounds, and the music itself call for international Peoples’ histories to be revisited and for any provoked indignation to be acted upon.
Highly influenced by the likes of Fugazi to Tortoise, Afrika Bambata to DJ Shadow, Don Caballero to Godspeed You Black Emperor, FMTM challenges the audience with epic compositions that abandon conventional song structure. Listen, question, act, repeat.
This is the end… The final From Monument To Masses show will be held Saturday, August 28, 2010 at The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, California. Come celebrate 10 years of our musical existence, along with our friends, Judgement Day & Silian Rail.
During the Fall of 2001, From Monument To Masses set out to record a simple demo of four of the first song’s they’d ever written. At the time, if there was any sort of "music career" formula they were looking to follow, they’d soon find that their life as a band would need to embrace a remarkably unconventional path matched only by their equally unconventional sound.
