Architects announce For Those That Wish To Exist U.S. headline tour
While fans in the UK and Europe have got to wait until early next year to catch Architects touring in support of their 5/5‑rated Number One album For Those That Wish To Exist, listeners across the pond will get to see the band live this year.
The Brighton metal heroes will hit America in November and December 2021 for a headline run, kicking things off at Los Angeles’ Novo, and finishing up at Minneapolis’ First Avenue a month later.
Reflecting on Architects’ growth as a band and how it impacts their music, frontman Sam Carter told Kerrang! last year that playing arenas on the Holy Hell cycle helped to inspire the ambition within For Those That Wish To Exist.
“I think Holy Hell still had that Architects sound, but alluded to where we could go next,” he said. “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.”
