It is official, ARCHITECTS have claimed the UK number 1 spot on the album charts, beating out competition from the likes of Maximo Park, Alice Cooper and Digga D.
The band are actually number 1 on (all UK):
The Official Album Chart The Official Record Store Chart The Official Download Albums Chart The Official Vinyl Albums Chart AND the Official Rock And Metal Albums Chart (their fifth number 1 on this chart)
For Those That Wish To Exist, the ninth studio record from England-based post-metalcore quintet ARCHITECTS, is out now via Epitaph Records.
The self-produced record finds ARCHITECTS tackling the biggest questions facing the future of our planet with their grandest, most expansive sonic offering yet building upon the band’s hallmark post-metalcore sound by layering a burgeoning influence of electronics and orchestral strings, horns and choirs. The result is a rich tapestry that transcends the limitations of genre and rewards exploration and immersion in its journey.
Tuesday 9th February, 2021 – ARCHITECTS release their brand new single ‘Meteor’ today, following a world exclusive play last night with Annie Mac on Radio 1 as her ‘Hottest Record In The World’. This is the forth single to be taken from their forthcoming ninth studio album ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’. Previous single ‘Animals’ was a Radio 1 play-listed track and along with the more recent released singles ‘Black Lungs’ and ‘Dead Butterflies’, the singles from this campaign have so far amassed over 31 million streams.
Today, ARCHITECTS are thrilled to share ‘Dead Butterflies’ – the third single to be taken from their forthcoming ninth studio album ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’. Accompanying ‘Dead Butterflies’ is a breathtaking music video, filmed at the legendary Royal Albert Hall in London, in November last year.
The groundbreaking Royal Albert Hall performance was streamed live on November 21st, garnering critical acclaim, and setting live-streaming records for the genre. NME gave the performance a perfect 5/5 score, calling ARCHITECTS“a band at the peak of their talents” and stating that “on the basis of these new songs, they’re heading somewhere remarkable indeed.”
