Architects Cancel North American Tour

Architects have cancelled their North American tour with We Came As Romans and Like Moths To Flames. The trek was unable to move forward due to “logistical issues.”

Architects commented:

“It pains us to announce that despite the best efforts of everyone in our band, our crew and the rest of the team, a number of logistical issues have forced us to cancel our upcoming North America tour. We had been looking forward to playing so many new songs for you, but everything from transportation to visa approval timelines and other hurdles have made the trip impossible at this stage. We recognize the last few years have been a challenging time for everyone and we were really excited to perform for you and share moments together that only live music can facilitate. We will announce new plans to return as soon as we we can. The last thing we want to do is announce new dates that we will be unable to uphold.

Thank you for your understanding. We will be back.

In the meantime, refunds for tickets & VIP will be made automatically to the method of payment used to purchase.”

Thieves Steal Like Moths To Flames’ Trailer

Unfortunately, Like Moths To Flames’ trailer was recently stolen. The band said the following about that on Twitter:

“Long story short.. Had our trailer stolen during this break at home. I’m not doing a gofund bc honestly I hate that type of dynamic, but I am going to drop some Moths stickers & decals into our shop for a weekend sale. Will have a link for you guys tonight when I get shit ready.”

“People fucking suck man. Trying to find the energy to get through the week so we can get back on the road. Love yinz.”

Like Moths To Flames Premiere New Song “Views From Halfway Down”

Like Moths To Flames have premiered a new song titled “Views From Halfway Down.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Pure Like Porcelain,” which will be released on November 5. Vocalist Chris Roetter commented:

“This song is the first time I’ve ever approached themes surrounding addiction. I think I tried to put myself in a place of morbid euphoria. Writing from a spot that felt like I was stuck between wanting to be better and wanting to remain in the state of mind of feeding whatever is driving the addiction. The view from halfway down is that time when you’re falling, where very little time passes but you see so much of your life passing by.”

Like Moths To Flames To Release New EP “Pure Like Porcelain” In November, Premiere New Song “The Preservation Of Hate”

Like Moths To Flames will be releasing a new EP, titled “Pure Like Porcelain,” on November 5. You can find the cover art and track listing for that effort below:

“Pure Like Porcelain” Track Listing:

01. “Ameliorate”
02. “Views From Halfway Down”
03. “The Preservation Of Hate”
04. “Gnashing Teeth”
05. “Do Not Resuscitate”

Guitarist Zach Pishney said the following about the EP:

“I think the EP is just a small taste of where we could possibly go next as a band. If ‘No Eternity‘ is considered a return-to-form album, then the EP is expanding those boundaries again. The coolest thing to me about the outcome of the EP is how extreme the shift in dynamic can be from song to song while still feeling like a cohesive listening experience as a whole.”

The effort’s first single, “The Preservation Of Hate,” can be found below. Vocalist Chris Roetter added the following about that track:

“I think we just wanted to have fun with this one. A lot of time, the focus for Moths is working cool chorus parts into the structure, so it’s a nice change of pace to have little singing on the track. It feels like a continuation of some of the more anger driven songs in catalogue and people who like the heavier side of the band will be pleased.”

Like Moths To Flames Premiere New Songs “Basilisk” & “Inherit The Tragedy”

Like Moths To Flames have released two new songs, “Basilisk” and “Inherit The Tragedy.” These tracks were recorded during the “No Eternity In Gold“ sessions and Chris Roetter had the following to say about them:

“Both ‘Basilisk‘ and ‘Inherit The Tragedy‘ are songs that I was super torn on cutting from the record. ‘Basilisk‘ covers the experience of being so rooted in your own problems that you’re detached from what’s happening around you. I think we all tend to get stuck in letting our struggles become our identity. ‘Inherit The Tragedy‘ follows the more classic themes that band has offered out in the past. We’ve never been a stranger to writing songs focused on cutting the chord from someone who becomes dead weight.”
