Architects have announced a full UK tour for later this year.
The Brighton metal band, who released their fifth album ‘Daybreaker’ last month, will play seven shows in mid-November.
The tour kicks off at Southampton Mo Club on November 9 and runs until November 16 when the band headline Nottingham Rock City. The run also includes gigs in Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and Newcastle. Support on the tour will come from Deez Nuts, The Acacia Strain and Bury Tomorrow.
Speaking to NME previously about ‘Daybreaker’ and how it moves on from their fourth album ‘The Here And Now’, guitarist Tom Searle said: “Some people might say we’ve regressed, but I think we’ve found our enthusiasm for playing heavy music again. I’m excited again by what I’ve come up with on guitar and lyrically it’s much more political and less personal.”
He continued: “I wanted to go back to being heavier and I think we’ve got our balls back. We’re not a band that should be on daytime radio and even when we got that stuff, it felt a bit uncomfortable. I think we were out of our comfort zone and the shoe didn’t fit.”
