Architects announce new album
‘Lost Forever, Lost Together’
March 10th / New video ‘Naysayer’
Freshly inducted into the Epitaph roster, Brighton England-based metalcore outfit ARCHITECTS share details on their new album, ‘Lost Forever, Lost Together’, out March 10th.
Watch the band’s epic new video for “Naysayer” now
After writing demos on their successful run on Warped Tour 2013, ARCHITECTS (whose lineup includes chief songwriter Tom Searle on guitars, keyboards, his twin brother Dan on drums, Sam Carter on lead vocals, and Alex Dean on bass) took to Studio Fredman in the Swedish city of Gothenburg in the middle of the sunlight-starved winter. Working with producers Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd (both known for their work with Bring Me the Horizon and chosen largely because “we’ve always been big fans of how massive their records sound,” according to Sam), ARCHITECTS spent a month living in the studio so that they could record whenever inspiration hit. Lost Forever, Lost Together is the follow up to their 2012 release on Century Media, Daybreaker.
On Lost Forever, Lost Together the band artfully weaves in ambient elements that sometimes verge on gauzy and dreamlike. Fans will notice the band deepen their blend of brutal, thundering metal and melody-spiked hardcore with heavier riffs and intricate arrangements inspired by This Will Destroy You, and even artists unlikely such as Sigur Ros. With lyrical content delving into everything from the Fukushima nuclear disaster to Tom’s recent bout with skin cancer, Lost Forever, Lost Together artfully delivers an emotional charge that’s both devastating and glorious.
As for the album title ARCHITECTS borrowed a lyric from the track “Youth Is Wasted on the Young.” As Tom Searle poignantly states, “we’re all lost. Everyone’s just trying to find their place, and hopefully we’ll all get there eventually.” Fans can pre-order the album by visiting: http://uk.kingsroadmerch.com/architects
ARCHITECTS will be embarking on an extensive headlining tour across UK and Europe, in support of the new album. Starting in Manchester (UK) on March 7th, this tour will take the band through 15 different countries, rounding it up in Paris (FR) on April 16th.
UK’s top metalcore band ARCHITECTS have officially signed to Epitaph Records, with plans to release their new album in 2014.
The band boasts: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be signing to Epitaph! Epitaph is a label that we’ve admired for a long time and when we left our old label we cited them as our ideal home so we’re delighted that it has become a reality. To join a roster alongside Every Time I Die, Converge, Bring Me The Horizon, letlive., The Ghost Inside and Parkway Drive, is an honour and we can’t wait to begin working together in this new chapter for Architects.”
The band is currently in Gothenburg, Sweden recording with Fredrik Nordström (Bring Me The Horizon, At The Gates, In Flames, Dimmu Brogir), with the plans to release the new album, and a follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed Daybreaker, in early 2014.
Regarding the new album, the band hints: “Fredrik has worked on a bunch of amazing sounding records over the last 20 years and he’s a perfect match for our band. The record is arguably our heaviest record to date, but I’m not going to waste anyone’s time with the standard metal band one liners about their new album sounding ‘huge’, you’re just going to have to wait and see.”
