Today, ARCHITECTS are thrilled to share ‘Dead Butterflies’ – the third single to be taken from their forthcoming ninth studio album ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’. Accompanying ‘Dead Butterflies’ is a breathtaking music video, filmed at the legendary Royal Albert Hall in London, in November last year.

The groundbreaking Royal Albert Hall performance was streamed live on November 21st, garnering critical acclaim, and setting live-streaming records for the genre. NME gave the performance a perfect 5/5 score, calling ARCHITECTS “a band at the peak of their talents” and stating that “on the basis of these new songs, they’re heading somewhere remarkable indeed.”

Watch the video for “Dead Butterflies” BELOW:

“Dead Butterflies” follows previously released tracks “Black Lungs” and the colossal single “Animals,” both of which have amassed 18M+ streams and 8.2 + YouTube views. Additionally, “Animals” was on BBC Radio 1 playlist for six weeks in the row.

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.

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 the 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.
