Architects announce new album and live shows

On 20th August, 2016, Architects’ guitarist Tom Searle died, following a three-year battle with cancer. He was only 28 years old. The Brighton band could have called it a day at that point, but instead they have admirably soldiered on, and will release their eighth studio album, Holy Hell, on 9th November.

In a press release, the group’s drummer – and Searle’s twin brother – Dan said, “Ultimately, there were two choices. Feel sorry for yourself and believe the world to be a horrible place and let it defeat you. Or let it inspire us to live the life that Tom would have wanted us to live.”

Self-produced by Dan and guitarist Josh Middleton, Holy Hell is, “About pain; the way we process it, cope with it, and live with it. There is value in pain,” Dan says. “It’s where we learn, it’s where we grow.” 'Hereafter' is the first track to be released.

The band have also announced a big European tour, including a headline show at Wembley Arena on 19th January.
