If you're a fan of that post-posi/pre-fashion, Orange County sound ala Adamantium, early 18v or early Throwdown, Monument to Thieves is a must-listen. 

And while the mascara of that whole fashioncore mess remains on vocalist Keith Barney's hands, he seems to be making amends, returning to his early writing style while penning insightful lyrics about social struggle and political wrongdoing -- not to mention citing His Hero is Gone as the influence for both the band's namesake and ethical stances.    

Stream Monument to Thieves' forthcoming 12" -- complete with very '97 samples about gay marriage, corporate abuse and healthcare -- at the band's MySpace page.

And while we're at it, how good was Adamantium?
