2020-10-20 by Ectier | 291 Comments
British outfit Architects have debuted a new single, "Animals", which you can stream below. This surprise single is the first new track from the band since 2018's Holy Hell.

While unconfirmed, the video's metadata suggests that the track will appear on the forthcoming record, slated to be titled For Those That Wish to Exist.

"Animals" was directed by drummer Dan Searle.

Architects are from Brighton and not Bristol, by the way.
As for the song I reckon it has a bit too much of a modern BMTH-style twist for my liking. The main riff is undeniably fun though.

Band was one of the best at ‘mathcore’ or whatever stupid title you want to give what Nightmares and Ruin was. Then they refined their sound to be more hardcore and were one of the best at that too.
Now I don’t really like the new sound based off that track but at least he’d be able to actually sing it live unlike BMTH etc.
Disappointed but they couldn’t just keep repeating the same sound again

Watch this album turn into The Here and Now Part II ;D

BMTH comparisons are fair, not sure what they were going for. List of guests on the album suggests that they're going for a different style, possibly similar to this single.

Song is okay, not what we've grown used to expect from them and not exactly mind blowing but definitely refreshing. Hoping for a mixed bag of heavier tracks and mellower stuff like this.

Should be fun

- have some woman use her monotone voice to say something like "we are ready to take over your minds, please fasten your seat belts"

- have the singer scream/sing something dumb like "we're all just looooosing our miiinnddss". Again and again for 3 minutes.

- add some crowd woahs in behind.

'That's cool af Deez. You had no idea who they were? Can't imagine having a meal with any band, let alone these dudes.'

I remember them from when they were just starting out, saw them a few time on all dayers or hxc show. Never really knew anything about them since apart from they were popular. I was meeting a friend I hadnt seen in a few years while i was in Germany for he weekend and he had also arranged to hook up with them after their show I think. Hes been mates with tehm for years maybe was tour manager also at some point. Was only outside when a few kids rocked up for autographs and pics and stuff I thought 'Whoah I didnt know they were that big' Had a look when I got home to see they were absolutely huge!

'Guessing Sam ordered the Big Mac deal'
Same was actually sat opposite me REAL nice dude. It was kind of a veggie/vegan place with insane deserts and fking MASSIVE tower burgers. Most of them were veggie/Vegan it looked like. It did also sell meat for people with far less morals, like me though. No guilt.

Yeah that's the truth though. These guys were actually really interesting back then.
It did hit me the other day when someone said it was probably a result of losing Tom as a songwriter.

I don't think it was necessarily Tom's loss. They have Josh, who is a really great guitarist, yet somehow holy hell was a generic riff fest. And this song continues that pattern. I think they are just trying to appeal to a wider audience, bmth style - as someone has already said.

Yeah also probably that. But i thought these guys had struck a good balance between an acceptable sound that was popular and not beeing too crappy. I mean you can argue that being generic is bad but I'd take that over this any day.

Oh and i don't know enough about Josh to comment on this, but a good guitarist doesn't necessarily make a good songwriter. You can comment on that more i guess.

Yeah the Josh thing is weird. Even though I dig this song, I'm surprised he is able to relinquish musical control and put up with playing significantly more simplistic music full time. The instrumentation in this is geared more towards big beefy production rather than being inherently interesting.

Josh must have the bluest balls ever in this band, especially in it's current incarnation

Since Hollow Crown they've been generic shit, def worse than sylosis
