Architects have shared their first new music since the release of 'For Those That Wish To Exist' last year, and it picks up exactly where it left off.
In monolithic form.
The song is called 'when we were young', a sprawling, arena-ready epic brimming with cathartic riffs, mountain-high melodies and all the grit and determination that you expect from an Architects epic. It's also a song that delivers a message that we can all relate to more and more, especially as the world around us continues to be as uncertain, to say the least.
Drummer Dan Searle had this to say about it:
"when we were young is a song that recognises what is gained and what is lost as we get older. as the world unfolds around us we can become overwhelmed by its endless complexity. when i was 20 I thought I had the whole thing sussed, today i’m pretty sure i’ll never understand reality. we lose our innocence as we age, and although fatalism and cynicism can creep in, we also begin to shift our focus toward gratitude for existence and for those that we love."
Here it is:
And just because, here's 'Animals':
