Monuments Releasing ‘Memoirs’ Single to Raise Money for Friend with Cancer

by | Oct 12, 2012

Monuments will release a digital single for a previously unreleased track, “Memoirs,” to raise money for treatment of a close friend diagnosed with cancer.

Bassist Adam Swan stated, “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. 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.”

A trailer for “Memoirs” is below.
