ARCHITECTS UK To Release 'All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us' Album In May
March 7, 2016
Brighton, U.K. five-piece ARCHITECTS UK will release its new album, "All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us", on May 27 via Epitaph. Recorded in Gothenburg, Sweden, the CD is the heaviest and darkest work to which frontman Sam Carter, bassist Ali Dean, guitarists Adam Christianson and Tom Searle, and the latter's twin brother drummer, Dan Searle have ever put their name to, both on and below its surface. It is an album that challenges and progresses a genre long thought to have stagnated, and embraces its inspirations at a time when many rock and metal bands seek to hide them in search of mainstream acceptance. It is also born from considered minds filled not by thoughts of being the biggest band in the world, but of making a difference.
ARCHITECTS UK is a band like few others; they are five young men who stand for something, and who possess an intelligence, awareness and spirit that inform the very fiber of their band. The quintet all practice a vegan lifestyle, tour with a consciousness about their footprint on the world, and who devote time and energies to environmental causes.
The worldwide anger and disillusion encapsulated in "All Our Gods..." wrestles with contemplations of death, god and faith in search of some semblance of hope for a world increasingly consumed by fear, anger and confusion. This album is ARCHITECTS UK's statement of intent to the world, it is time to stand up, take notice and be counted.
ARCHITECTS UK will be playing the European summer tour circuit this summer, with plans to tour the U.S. later this year.
