Architects also joined acts like Of Mice And Men and Bury Tomorrow for Radio 1 Rocks Week, performing live on the Zane Lowe show on Monday, click here to listen.

After writing demos on their successful run on Warped Tour 2013,  Architects (whose lineup includes chief songwriter Tom Searle on guitars, keyboards, his twin brother Dan on drums, Sam Carter on lead vocals, and Alex Dean on bass) took to Studio Fredman in the Swedish city of Gothenburg in the middle of the sunlight-starved winter. Working with producers Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd.

On Lost Forever // Lost Together the band artfully weaves in ambient elements that sometimes verge on gauzy and dreamlike. Take the instrumental ‘Red Hypergiant’ that threads a sample of voiceover from a Carl Sagan film through an oceanic wall of sound, for example, while the album-closing ‘Distant Blue’ starts out as a snarling, lead-heavy epic and then unfolds into spacey ethereality. 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.

As for the album title Architects borrowed a lyric from the track ‘Youth Is Wasted on the Young’.
As Tom Searle poignantly states, “We’re all lost. Everyone’s just trying to find their place, and hopefully we’ll all get there eventually.”
