Architects Announce New Album, Tour, and Share Lead Single
Architects announce a brand new studio album entitled The Classic Symptoms Of A Broken Spirit, which will be out via Epitaph on October 21st. The announcement comes with the release of lead single ”Tear Gas,” an arena-ready anthem packed with industrial stomp.
The Classic Symptoms Of A Broken Spirit will be the band’s 10th studio album and is the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed album For Those That Wish To Exist. The band barely had time to celebrate success when they began the process of writing the songs that make up the new record. Produced by Dan Searle and Josh Middleton, with additional production from Sam Carter at Deacon’s Middle Farm Studios and their own HQ, Electric Studios in Brighton. The band were buoyed by finally being back in the room together after their last album was made mostly remote due to COVID restrictions, the result was something altogether more “free, playful, and spontaneous” the band’s drummer and songwriter Dan explains that this one feels more live, more exciting and more fun – it has that energy. Sam Carter agrees that they wanted it to be a lot more industrial and electronic.
Layers of electronic and industrial elements infuse the album with a blast of energy that sets the cinematic moodscape for the 11-track ride. There is more than a passing nod to the band’s post-rock influences as well as now familiar fist pumping anthems such as “When We Were Young,” and new single, “Tear Gas.” Anything is possible – wake up the unstoppable.
