ARCHITECTS release their brand new single 'Meteor' today, following a world exclusive play last night with Annie Mac on Radio 1 as her 'Hottest Record In The World'. This is the fourth single to be taken from their forthcoming ninth studio album 'For Those That Wish To Exist'. Previous single 'Animals' was a Radio 1 play-listed track and along with the more recent released singles 'Black Lungs' and 'Dead Butterflies', the singles from this campaign have so far amassed over 31 million streams.
On 'For Those That Wish To Exist', ARCHITECTS tackle the biggest questions facing the future of our planet with their grandest, most expansive sonic offering yet. On the self-produced record, the band build upon the band’s hallmark post-metalcore and layers a burgeoning influence of electronics and orchestral strings, horns, and choirs. The result is a rich tapestry that transcends the limitations of genre and rewards exploration and immersion in its journey.
Listen to 'Meteor' - BELOW:
The record’s 15-tracks hang in a limbo between energising positivity that it is not too late to correct our collective course and paralysing negativity of defeatism; where hope and despondency are bed-fellows triggered daily by the simple act of existence. A reflection of human condition, 'For Those That Wish To Exist' calls for all of us to rise to challenge established models and strive for a collective betterment. Such concerns that have long been prevalent in the music of a band who have continually championed and shared their platform with causes such as Sea Shepherd, are outspoken critics of barbaric exercises such as fox hunting, and who focus on sustainability in everything from their touring to merch production.
