Architects Stream New Album “Holy Hell”

Architects are streaming their new album “Holy Hell“ in its entirety. That effort was officially released today (November 9) and it is the band’s first since the tragic death of guitarist/songwriter Tom Searle.

Architects drummer and Tom’s brother, Dan Searle commented:

“Our eighth album, ‘Holy Hell’, is released today. I always had faith that we would make this album a reality, but now that the day has arrived I feel a sense of disbelief.

Two years ago we were just wrapping up our first stretch of touring without Tom and once we returned home we set about building this record from the ground up. It seemed like a mountain to climb.

I’ve already seen so many kind things said about the album and that its already connecting with so many people, all over the world, is a wonderful feeling. Thank you.

At every stage of this records creation I asked myself ‘would Tom like this?’. We kept him present throughout the writing process. Bizarrely today is bittersweet for me. Of course I feel great joy that the album is out there, in the world, and being enjoyed by so many people, but I also feel as though I am letting go of our final collaboration with Tom. I’m letting go of the album that helped see me through some of the most difficult days of my life.

We are more excited for the future than ever though. The unsung hero of this album is Josh. A man who has quietly come in and made these songs possible. We can’t thank him enough.

This album was written for one person. Someone who inspired us to always strive for better. Someone we miss so much, especially today. This album is For Tom.

– Dan“
