Celebrating the news, Architects’ vocalist Sam Carter paid tribute to their late bandmate Tom Searle, who died in 2016.
“I cannot begin to tell you how much this means to us,” Carter said. “Thank you to every single person who bought this record. We love you so much and we could not have done this without you.
“To have an album that connects this much, with what we’re talking about – trying and pushing for a better world – it’s unbelievable. As ever, everything we do is for Tom Searle, our brother.”
In a four-star review of ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’, NME said that the record “pushes
Architects into unexplored territory and a bold new future where even bigger
venues and audiences surely await.”
