Why Dutch proggers Elements are looking to the future

With a long history and poignant new album Monument, Elements' Sander de Jong explains why he's got his eyes set on the future

We’re in the Dutch province of Zuid-Holland this month, to meet a band 25 years into their prog rock adventure. Elements have been through many names and many line-ups in that time, and they’ve known both triumph and tragedy, but their current album, Monument, sees the four-piece finally evolve into the band they always wanted to be. “The album’s name is very important to us,” says drummer Sander de Jong. “It’s a monument to our past and a signpost in the road as we go forward. It’s a real turning point for us.”
