Powerful Architects draw up plans for album reissue, October 2010 tour and then another album!
Some bands just don't know when to take it easy and Architects is a group of lads who clearly aren't opting for the easy life. The Brighton quintet have been busy shearing skin off people's ear-ducts ever since their third album, "Hollow Crown", hit the shops at the beginning of 2009.
Now in anticipation of their eagerly-awaited 2011 album (more of that later), Architects are set to hit the roads of the UK once again, this time to promote their re-issued version of "Hollow Crown", released last month. This tidy package contains an extra DVD of tour-memoirs and footage plus an extra remix of the title track by the brothers Searle.
Their tour heads off from Leeds on 30th September and continues around the country via London's KOKO (8th October), before ending up in Belfast on 17th October. Tickets are on sale for £11 plus fees.
But wait - you don't just get Architects, you get three other powerful metalcore bands including Hertfordshire's Lower than Atlantis, the American Christian-core outfit Norma Jean and London's Devil Sold His Soul. Hang on, that's four bands for around £15 (with the fees added in) - less than 4 quid each!
2011 will see the band practise closure on "Hollow Crown" by releasing their fourth studio album in the form of "The Here and Now". A preceding single appears on 27th Sep, entitled "Day in Day Out".
