Brighton, United Kingdom based metalcore band Architects (UK) have announced headlining US tour dates with Counterparts, Sworn In, and Make Them Suffer joining as support. The tour begins on July 11 in Detroit at The Shelter and concludes on August 5 in New York at Gramercy Theatre. The tour is in support of the band’s new album All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us which arrives on May 27.
‘All Our Gods…’ is the work of five young men who stand for something, and who possess an intelligence, awareness and spirit that informs 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. So it makes sense that with the new album in the span of 11 tracks, Architects (UK) wrestle with contemplations of the end of mankind, spirituality, and the search of some semblance of hope in a world increasingly consumed by fear, anger and confusion. As guitarist Tom Searle explains, “people may ask where the hope is on this new album. But confronting the darker parts of life is healthy and positive. It’s a healthy thing spiritually, to let go of trying to control everything. No one looks up at the stars any more. We don’t question what makes us happy, or what true happiness is, and how we can find it.”
And what Architects (UK) hope to achieve with the new album is a statement of intent to the world, it is time to stand up, take notice, and be counted.
