Architects bassist Ali Dean quits the band

Dean leaves metalcore band due to family commitments

Architects have announced that bassist Ali Dean has left the band.

Dean had already missed the Brighton metalcore band’s recent shows due to family commitments, and has now left for good, they confirmed yesterday (February 10).

The band said: “We’re extremely saddened to announce that Ali Dean will no longer be playing in Architects. Ali was not part of our previous European tour due to family commitments. Unfortunately, these commitments are going to extend indefinitely and as a result he simply cannot commit to continue playing with us. No one will miss him more than the four of us.”

Dean said: “I can no longer commit myself to this band. Playing in this band and spending the past five years of my life with these four guys has been extraordinary. I would love nothing more than to carry on, but I’ve now got other priorities and commitments which would not be right for me to ignore.”

Architects released their fourth studio album ‘The Here And Now’ on January 24. They support Bring Me The Horizon on their UK tour in April.
