Architects Announces New Album “Holy Hell”, New Video And Single Out Now

One of the most hotly anticipated albums of 2018, Architects will release their new full-length Holy Hell, on November 9th on Epitaph Records. They also issued a new single and a music video which was directed by Jeb Hardwick. for ‘Hereafter’. Watch it below. The band also announced a headline tour of Europe and the UK, with tickets going on sale later this week!


Dan Searle commented:

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

Vocalist Sam Carter commented:

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

Dan added:

Ultimately, there were two choices. 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.”

For me, broadly speaking Holy Hell is about pain: the way we process it, cope with it, and live with it. There is value in pain. It’s where we learn, it’s where we grow.”
