Architects announce 2022 UK arena tour
Architects have announced a five-date arena tour for February and March 2022.
Following the success of their 5K-rated Number One album For Those That Wish To Exist, Sam Carter and co. have confirmed that they’ll be hitting the road next year, taking on massive venues in Leeds, Glasgow, Nottingham, London and Cardiff. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 19, at 10am.
Of course, Architects are no strangers to rooms of this size, with Sam telling Kerrang! last year that playing arenas on the Holy Hell cycle actually 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 explained. “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.”
Catch Architects live at the following dates:
22 Leeds First Direct Arena
23 Glasgow SSE Hydro
25 Nottingham Motorpoint Arena
26 London Alexandra Palace
1 Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
From Gojira to Weezer to Evanescence and beyond, these are albums you need to listen to from the past six months.
BABYMETAL and The Fox God have announced that, “with all 10 episodes of METAL RESISTANCE coming to a close” on October 10, 2021, “the 10-year legend will be sealed from the world”.
