Architects have shared a video for their new single Modern Misery.

It’s the latest track taken from the band’s upcoming album Holy Hell, which is set to arrive on November 9 via Epitaph Records.

The UK outfit previously revealed the songs Hereafter and Royal Beggars, along with an online documentary where they talk about making their first album since the tragic death of guitarist Tom Searle, who passed away in 2016 after a three year battle with cancer.

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

“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."

He added: “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.”

Architects are preparing to head out on tour in support of Holy Hell. They’ll play a handful of shows in Russia in December before returning to the UK and Europe in early 2019.
