Tuesday the 10th of March will see the Brighton based metalcore group Architects playing at Manchester’s The Ritz as part of their string of UK gigs next spring. Since 2004, the bands unhindered and raging style has attracted a large number of fans and has spawned the release of six studio albums, the first of which was 2006 LP ‘Nightmares’. Since the release of their debut album the band have explored darker and heavier styles resulting in the album ‘Ruin’ and eventually started to use synthesisers and vocals that were cleaner cut in their most recent albums like ‘Lost Forever // Lost Together’ and ‘Daybreaker’.
With a sound built on many inspirations from Hatebreed to The Dillinger Escape Plan and Shadows Fail, Architects have been able to craft beautifully aggressive tracks like ‘Naysayer’, whilst also integrating political and cultural themes in songs like ‘These Colours Don’t Run’. Since their early material, Architects have supported the likes of The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, Beneath The Massacre and Suicide Silence. The bands lead guitarist and drummer, brothers Dan and Tom Searle, are the only two members to have stayed with the band since the beginning. Bass guitarist Tim Lucas was replaced by Alex Dean, vocalist Matt Johnson was preceded by Sam Carter and the bands second guitarist left without a replacement in 2011. This year, Architects will be embarking on a tour stopping in Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfurt and many venues in the UK, including this date at Manchester iconic music venue, The Ritz.
