Brighton, England metalcore stalwarts Architects UK are streaming their new album Lost Forever // Lost Together now at YouTube. The official release date is March 11 via Epitaph Records in the US. Lost Forever // Lost Together is the group's most sprawling, ambitious, and tightly controlled recording. Metal Hammer in the UK says "Given the path Architects have had to tread, this is nothing short of a genuine triumph", giving it 8 stars. Fans are invited to pre-order the album by visiting iTunes.
On Lost Forever // Lost Together, Architects UK deepen their brand of brutal, thundering metal and melody-spiked hardcore with their heaviest riffs yet; combining them with intricate electronic arrangements at great levels of precision. Producers Fredrik NordstrÃ¶m and Henrik Udd assisted the band in achieving this sound in the brutal sunlight-starved Swedish winter at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg. This is where the band lived and slept for a month so that they could record whenever inspiration hit. Lost Forever, Lost Together artfully delivers an emotional charge that's both devastating and glorious, with lyrics delving into everything from the Fukushima nuclear disaster to Architects UK's guitarist/keyboardist/chief songwriter Tom Searle's recent bout with skin cancer.
And on March 10 in celebration of the new release, the band will host a live show in their hometown of Brighton, England that will be streamed online. Fans can tune into the Epitaph YouTube channel to be a part of the worldwide event. Further details are to be announced.
Architects UK will return to the US for a co-headlining tour with label-mates letlive. this spring. Glass Could and I The Mighty are also on the bill. Tickets are on-sale now and moving fast: http://bit.ly/1p27K0U.
