DS Exclusive: Fallen Monuments stream new song, “It Doesn’t Mean a Thing”

Fallen Monuments is a rawkin’ little San Diego punk quartet for fans of Descendents and Strung Out that’ll get you up and moving this happy Tuesday afternoon, or I ain’t the damn Dolly Llama. Gary, Todd, Brandon, and Aaron are four old-timer best buds that whether it be through excretions of hyperintensive melodic leads or the sweet Bill Stevinson-esque bass kick snap tone, apparently secrete punk rock down to their very core. They’ve been making music together since 2016, and released the band’s debut full-length, Distance and Time, in May of last year.

To follow up on that well-received album (available here) Fallen Monuments is releasing a new EP, Experiments, which is set for release on April 2, this year of our lord, and will be again made available on the (previously linked) band’s bandcamp page for digital streaming and purchase.

“It Doesn’t Mean a Thing” is the first single off the EP, as well as the only original, where just for funsies they’ve included a couple of covers: “Overkill” by Men at Work, and “Under the Milky Way” by The Church. Of “It Doesn’t Mean a Thing”, it’s a damn-good song, and has the sounding of playability where you can listen to it on repeat for a while, or at least until you’re bashing your head on the rails and begging for …Men at Work to come on(?) Can you hear the thunder? I for one can’t wait for the rest!

“It Doesn’t Mean a Thing” talks of growing old and falling folly. It almost takes a sarcastic air with the  thematic cant of a more insightful Nelson Muntz. “It’s just so sad that it happened to you. It doesn’t mean a thing.”

I’ve listened to it like twenty times and all I hear is “Ha-Ha,” but you tell me.



Fallen Monuments (punk) streaming new album “Distance and Time”

San Diego punks Fallen Monuments are streaming their new album “Distance and Time” and I feel like I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t tell you to go check it out right now. A fellow Dying Scener wrote and I quote: “Conflicted” is hands-down one of my favorite songs this year. The song pairs a high-energy, straight-up punk rock sound with personal lyrics.” I am here to say the rest of the album does not disappoint.

Screw the mushy crap, give it a listen below.

This represents the first new music in nearly a decade from Fallen Monuments, and it’s been well worth the wait. If you love punk rock go listen to this and it will remind you why.



DS Exclusive: Fallen Monuments premiere new song “Conflicted” from upcoming debut album

San Diego’s Fallen Monuments‘ “Conflicted” is hands-down one of my favorite songs this year. The song pairs a high-energy, straight-up punk rock sound with personal lyrics “…about a personal struggle where in the face of repeated failure, the heart refuses to give up on your dreams even though your head tells you it’s time to move on!”

“Conflicted” is off Fallen Monuments’ debut album, “Distance and Time,” which releases May 22nd digitally via bandcamp.

In proper DIY fashion, the album was written, recorded and produced by the band. The album shines as a work of catharsis, with the members of Fallen Monuments having endured tragedy, heartache, loss, and uncertainty, but coming together after nearly a decade apart to channel all their strife into a well-polished (but not over-produced), tight package of fierce guitar, driving rhythm, and powerful vocals.

Check it out for yourself in the stream of “Conflicted” below!
