England-based post-metalcore quintet, Architects will release their ninth studio record “For Those That Wish To Exist” on February 26, 2021 via Epitaph. The self-produced record arrives as the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2018 release “Holy Hell”.
On “For Those That Wish To Exist”, Architects examine the part we are all playing in the world’s slow destruction, and tackle the biggest questions facing the future of our planet. Principal songwriter Dan Searle comments: “This album was me looking at our inability to change to a way of life that would sustain the human race and save the planet. I wanted to look in the mirror and ask ourselves the question of what are going to do, as opposed to trying to point the finger at politicians. Change has to start on a personal level. The world has developed a culture of wanting someone else to deal with it, when we need to take our own responsibility. It has to start there.”
As a first glimpse at the forthcoming record, the first single, “Animals”, is now available. Watch the music video here:
