Architects Premiere Video For Orchestral Version Of “Animals”

Architects have released an orchestral version of “Animals” via Amazon Music. The track was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, England and a video for it can be found below. The original version of “Animals” appears on the band’s latest album “For Those That Wish To Exist.“ The group commented:

“This was an amazing opportunity to reimagine Animals entirely. We took away the jagged synths, replaced them with an orchestra and recorded it in the world-famous Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. The result is unlike anything we’ve ever done before. We hope you enjoy it.”

Architects Top U.K. Albums Chart For First Time With “For Those That Wish To Exist”

Architects have topped the U.K. albums chart with their new record “For Those That Wish To Exist.” This was the first time that the band claimed the No. 1 spot.

Sam Carter told OfficialCharts.com the following:

“I cannot begin to tell you how much this means to us. Thank you to every single person who bought this record. We love you so much and we could not have done this without you. To have an album that connects this much, with what we’re talking about — trying and pushing for a better world — it’s unbelievable. As ever, everything we do is for Tom Searle, our brother.”

The band also added the following on social media:

“We are blown away. Never in our wildest dreams did we aspire to this. Even 1 week ago, when we released this record, there was no discussion between us of having a number 1 record.

We’ve been around for 16 years and this is our 9th (ninth) record – bands just don’t hit new peaks on their ninth record, but here we are. Four years ago we lost Tom and our worlds were turned upside down. The fact that we can stand here today with a No. 1 record in the UK, having lost our songwriter, having created a record that took so many risks, should be impossible, but here we are.

We owe a debt of gratitude to our fans. You rallied together and made this possible – we only just got over the line and every single one of you played your part – thank you for making this a reality, we are endlessly grateful.

Thank you to everyone involved with this record, there are too many to name but you know who you are. We love you all ❤️”
