Architects is one of those bands that emerged in the heydays of metalcore. After a few years their album ‘Hollow Crown’ showed their worth in the metalcore genre. At that time they started to play support slots for bands like Parkway Drive, A Day to Remember and Bring Me the Horizon. But it did not take long before they were playing arena-filling headlining tours across the globe themself.
Some critics claim that the band has reinvented the metalcore sound with their fresh and modern style. 2014’s Lost Forever – Lost Together was rock solid and cemented their status as a leading band. 2016’s All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us was the last album released while lead songwriter Tom Searle was still alive. He died of skin cancer a few months after its release.
The band mourned the loss, but never gave up. In 2018 it came out with one of their best albums ‘Holy Hell’. The album ‘For These That Wish to Exist’ followed in 2021 and a new album will be released in October 2022; ‘The Classic Symptoms Of a Broken Spirit’.
After the sold-out shows in 2018 in 013 Tilburg and Ancienne Belgique (AB) Brussels, Architects came back again in 2019 with bigger shows at AFAS Live Amsterdam and Lotto Arena Antwerp. After that, Covid brought the sector to a standstill. Now 2 albums later it is more than time to go on tour again.
For a long time it looked like only Germany was lucky enough to have the band live on stage again. Fortunately, we were able to change that. The grand finale of their ‘Germany tour’ will take place at Headbangers Parade, in the Netherlands. And with that we have a unique show and also the only show of Architects on the European mainland besides Germany.
Are you a fan and have you, just like us, been looking forward to seeing the band live again for years? Then don’t miss Headbangers Parade. Who knows how long you’ll have to wait again.
