Australia’s alt-rock queens The Beautiful Monument have announced they will be heading out on a headline tour around Australia in August to showcase their brand new album, I’m The Reaper (out June 28 via Greyscale Records). The Music has aptly declared, I’m The Reaper, as “a major contestant for heavy release of the year”, and these shows will prove exactly why. Pre-order the album here.
The Beautiful Monument has also unveiled their next heart-wrenching single/video “Reaper”. Here frontwoman Lizi Blanco continues to explore her life thus far, as she reflects on her first experience of loss and the grief that follows in its wake. It’s a stark realisation of finality of death and how things will never be the same again. “Reaper” is signature The Beautiful Monument with its deeply pensive verses weaved together by soaring choruses that will stay with you long after the final note rings.
Lizi explains, “I’d never experienced loss until the 3rd of November 2016. I lost one of my closest friends, my future housemate and our manager. I never learnt true heartbreak until that day. My world stopped in its tracks. It felt like a sick dream. All of a sudden it hit me that I would never get to speak to him again, I would never see that proud dad look on his face when he saw us girls doing our thing on stage. I miss him a lot and two years on I still think about him every day and talk about him every chance
