Architects stream Downfall, announce UK tour


Architect have streamed their track Downfall from seventh album All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us – and they’ve also announced a winter tour of the UK.

The follow-up to 2014’s Lost Forever Lost Together is released on May 27 via Epitaph Records, and the band have a run of shows in Europe and North America over the coming months, including an appearance at the Download festival.

Frontman Sam Carter recently said of their latest material: “It’s evidence of a band putting their ego to one side. It’s like saying, ‘We’re not important – this is important.’

“I’m not saying we’re going to change the world, but we’re trying to take our art and move it on to the next level.”

Tickets for the November dates are on sale now.

Why are Architects so pissed off?

Freelance Online News Contributor

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
