Monuments Drummer Anup Sastry Exits Band


Drummer Anup Sastry has announced his departure from Monuments, offering the following statement:

“As much as I’ve enjoyed sharing the stage with the band, I’ve unfortunately decided to leave Monuments. Touring with the band just wasn’t for me. I had an absolute blast playing with the group live, and I’m leaving the band on good terms. I was able to see a lot of beautiful places and meet a lot of wonderful people while in the band, and I’m very appreciative and grateful for those experiences.

This decision is very amicable, and I will surely miss hanging out with everyone. Unfortunately, Monuments just wasn’t for me.

I wish the absolute best for Olly, Adam, John, and Chris. Monuments will continue to get on stage and rip it, and I wish the band the best of luck with their future endeavors. I’ll be staying busy with a few projects, which Im excited to announce and share with everyone in the future.

I want to thank everyone for all of the amazing and continued support. It really does mean a lot.”

Monuments themselves commented:

Anup is stepping down from his position in Monuments.
We’ve had a sick time and we’re still good mates.
This doesn’t effect our touring schedule and all our summer festival shows will go ahead as planned.
Huge shout out to Daniel Lang from Red Enemy for filling in on such short notice.
First stop Grasspop!

Earlier this year Monuments ran into some financial issues while touring America, it was not revealed if the strain of touring played a part in Sastry‘s departure.
