Following on from the excellent ‘A Match Made In Heaven‘, Architects have dropped another song from their upcoming seventh album ‘All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us‘. No surprises, it’s amazing. Check out ‘Gone With The Wind‘ below.
Speaking about the album in the new issue of Upset, Sam Carter explains ” “A lot of people were maybe expecting us to go a little bit softer. We just really wanted to do the opposite of that. We know we’re good at being a heavy band and we want to continue being heavy.
“It would have been very easy to go in and do a regular Architects record. We could have gone in and done the basic things that we could do to make it sound good but there’s no point in that, because you’re left with that for the rest of your life. We went in there, drove ourselves crazy for seven weeks, lost our minds over the tiniest bits, sat there, said this wasn’t good enough and did it again and again. There’s no way we could follow up ‘Lost Forever…’ with ‘Lost Forever… Part 2’ because that record was so special to people and to us.”
‘All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us’ is out May 27th and to celebrate the band will be playing two hometown shows at Brighton’s Concorde 2 on the day of release (and the following day, due to an internet glitch). After that, there’s a whole host of festivals including Rock AM Ring, Rock Im Ring and Download.
