After premiering the song live during their Royal Albert Hall streaming event last year, Architects have just unveiled an epic new single (and video from the show), Dead Butterflies.

The track follows previous singles Animals and Black Lungs, and is taken from the band's upcoming ninth album, For Those That Wish To Exist, which is due out on February 26 via Epitaph Records.

Alluding to the musical direction the band are taking on the record, frontman Sam Carter told Kerrang!: ​“I think [2018 eighth album] Holy Hell still had that Architects sound, but alluded to where we could go next. Holy Hell took us into arenas, and playing live in those spaces taught us a lot. We felt like we were able to go where we wanted, without losing sight of ourselves. After nine albums, you have to go somewhere a little different, a little uncomfortable, and that’s where creativity flies.”
