Architects have announced the rescheduled dates for their UK headline tour to May 2022.
The Brighton band were due to hit the road next February in support of their ninth album ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’, which came out earlier this year. However, their planned dates have now been moved back a couple of months, to early May.
In an official press release, the band explained that the new album was inspired by global uncertainty in 2020 and looming threats to the future of mankind.
“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,” explained guitarist and songwriter Dan Searle. “I wanted to look in the mirror and ask ourselves the question of what are we 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.”
The new album features collaborations with Biffy Clyro‘s Simon Neil, Royal Blood‘s Mike Kerr and Parkway Drive‘s Winston McCall.
Tickets purchased for the original tour dates will remain valid, with an additional batch of tickets available HERE.
