Architects UK Release Video For Broken Cross

Architects UK have just released a video for their latest track, Broken Cross, a brilliantly brutal track off their new album Lost Forever, Lost Together out on March 11 via Epitaph.

And in celebration of the album release, the band is hosting live show in their hometown of Brighton, England. Fans can tune into the Epitaph YouTube channel on March 10 to be a part of the worldwide event. Further details are to be announced.

Metalcore stalwarts, Sam Carter (vocals), Tom Searle (guitar), Tom’s twin brother Dan Searle (drums) and Alex Dean (bass) entered Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producers Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd. The band lived at the studio for a month so that they could record whenever inspiration hit, in the dead of sunlight-starved winter.

On Lost Forever, Lost Together the band artfully weaves in ambient elements that sometimes verge on gauzy and dreamlike. Fans will notice the band deepen their blend of brutal, thundering metal and melody-spiked hardcore with heavier riffs and intricate arrangements inspired by This Will Destroy You and even artists unlikely such as Sigur Ros. With lyrical content delving into everything from the Fukushima nuclear disaster to Tom’s recent bout with skin cancer, Lost Forever, Lost Together artfully delivers an emotional charge that’s both devastating and glorious. And as former denizens of the UK metal/hardcore underground who self-released their debut album Nightmares when they were just 17, Architects UK note that they found much inspiration in looking back on changes they’ve endured over the years.

As for the album title, Tom Searle states: “No one knows where they’re going in life or what’s coming next and when it’s easy you don’t realise until it’s hard and you go, ‘Fuck, it was easy then.’ We’re all all lost. Everyone’s just trying to find their place and hopefully we’ll all get there eventually.”

Architects UK is US-bound this spring with a big tour announcement coming soon in support of Lost Forever, Lost Together. Until then, fans are invited to pre-order the album by clicking here.
