Support on the dates will be Misery Signals and A Textbook Tragedy. Fancy some press release hyperbole explaining more about the 'Hollow Crown'? Thought so, here you go:

''Lyrically, Hollow Crown deals with themes of arrogance, obsession and belonging. With the album title itself a comment on those that bask in undeserved glory, tracks such as first video single Dethroned, proven live favourite We're All Alone and the feral Numbers Count For Nothing are multi-perspective explorations of a hero complex. Meanwhile, the likes of Follow The Water, Early Grave and the epic In Elegance find their narrator struggling against his own instincts and self-destructive obsessions a concept which is further pushed to its bleakest on the lyrically twinned Dead March and Left With A Last Minute, songs which explore the minds of, and relationships between, stalker and victim the tragic cycles at the story's centre effectively a metaphor for how so many people live their lives.

Dark yet uplifting, dense yet accessible, crushing yet comforting Hollow Crown is an album with so much to offer every fan of modern metal and hardcore. An impressive, bold and artistically immense achievement, Hollow Crown will surely see Architects turning their waves into tsunamis.''
