Drummer Dan Searle commented:

“This album was me looking at our inability to change to a way of life that would sustain the human race and save the planet. I wanted to look in the mirror and ask ourselves the question of what are going to do, as opposed to trying to point the finger at politicians. Change has to start on a personal level. The world has developed a culture of wanting someone else to deal with it, when we need to take our own responsibility. It has to start there.”

Architects Drop Off Jera On Air Festival Due To Headliner Billing Dispute

Architects have decided to drop off this year’s Jera On Air festival in Ysselsteyn, NET due to a billing dispute. The band said they were supposed be the headliners at the event, but they got moved down following a recent announcement. This news comes after Parkway Drive were added to the festival.

Architects commented:

“Unfortunately we won’t be appearing at Jera On Air this summer as previously announced. We were booked as headliners for the festival however following the most recent announcement we were not billed as such.

Perhaps this seems an overreaction however we have taken this step as a matter of principle. When we are booked to perform we fulfill our commitments in the deal and we expect promoters to do the same.

We asked for an amendment to be made however the promoter appears to have promised one thing to us and another to the other headliner.

We are sorry to let fans down who had bought tickets to see us perform. We hope that fans of the band respect that this isn’t a decision we took lightly and we look forward to being back in the Netherlands in the near future.”
