Architects have announced their new album ‘Holy Hell’, and a UK tour

Architects updated their website earlier this week with a mysterious audio-visual teaser - and now they’ve announced their new album.

The Brighton band’s follow-up to 2016’s ‘All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us’, 'Holy Hell' will be released on 9th November via Epitaph Records. They’ve also dropped a new video for 'Hereafter’.

Last year, they released one-off single ‘Doomsday’; their first since the passing of Tom Searle, featuring new guitarist Josh Middleton.

“In those first months after Tom’s death, I didn’t deal with it at all and I felt so unhappy and anxious,” drummer Dan Searle explains. “I’d ignored it and just tried to cope. But I knew that at some point, I had to learn from it.”

“It’s at times like that you ask yourself, ‘What is left?’” adds vocalist Sam Carter. “As a group of friends, we had to find something.”

“Ultimately, there were two choices,” Dan continues. “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. I was very worried about people taking away a despondent message from the album. I felt a level of responsibility to provide a light at the end of the tunnel for people who are going through terrible experiences.”

The track listing reads:

1 Death Is Not Defeat
2 Hereafter
3 Mortal After All
4 Holy Hell
5 Damnation
6 Royal Beggars
7 Modern Misery
8 Dying To Heal
9 The Seventh Circle
10 Doomsday
11 A Wasted Hymn

Architects have also announced their biggest ever European tour, taking place in January and February. The UK dates read:

14 Manchester, O2 Victoria Warehouse (UK)
17 Glasgow, O2 Academy (UK)
18 Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena (UK)
19 London, The SSE Arena Wembley (UK)
