Architect News + Review

UK metalcore five-piece, Architects, released a brand new single titled “Animals” on October 20th accompanied with a music video. The band also announced their ninth upcoming full-length album titled For Those That Wish to Exist available February 26, 2021.


​“Animals” is quite different from Architects’ previous releases. Instrumentally, it is headed in a different direction from Holy Hell (2018) and All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us (2016). However, it definitely isn’t a terrible thing. The band smoothly transitioned into an alternate sound, while keeping the ambient aspect. Vocally, Sam Carter continues to have a phenomenal style that matches perfectly with their new sound.

Formed in 2004, Architects started off as a post-hardcore band and later progressed into a more melodic sound. This can be seen in their fourth full-length album titled The Here and Now. Since then, the band has released four more albums: Daybreaker, Lost Forever / Lost Together, All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us, and Holy Hell. ​
