New Architects Video 24 replies

Architects have released a new music video for the song "Gravity" from their 2016 album All Our Weiners Have Abandoned Us. This is their third music video from the album and it was directed by Jack Soffalot. According to SteveOffProbation, you are beyond clueless if you don't like this.
