Didn't seem like a very emotional response. Or like they cared at all.

New single out around 6th of May called Alpha/Omega, touches on religious themes, just to say...apparently Josh is having to learn it saying that the riff is "effing hard" to learn.

They are good friends Sam and Josh though. I'm probably thinking into it a bit too much but whatever Tim can do, Josh can do better.

Josh is such a weird replacement. Stylistically the band are totally different. Not to mention disproportion in skill.

These Colours Don't Run and Devils Island both make me think that the new album will still be rubbish. They really forgot who they were after they'd released Hollow Crown, which for all it's change to their sound really perfected the melodic/aggressive Architects mix.

I bet a jam tart that Daybreaker(or is dawnbreaker) will be good, but far from the quality of hollow
crown.

It will, it'll be different to Hollow Crown, therefore its sorta incomparable.

Based on interviews and such around the time THAN was released, they all wanted to be a little softer on that record. It's possible that he didn't want to play heavy music again, though. But that's just a guess...

Sylosis is awesome, the Architects, not so much.

Maybe they will become less Metalcore, IE, suck less.

But about Josh Middleton saying that he's having a hard time learning the riff in this, uhm yeah right. Its tricky, but nothing too crazy and since he's in Sylosis he should have no problem nailing within an hour of practicing it.
