Architects - For Those That Wish to Exist

With their latest release, Architects continue to design their own future with their signature sound, while following the blueprints of the past that got them where they are. Full of vocal melodies that keep the songs structurally sound, and the heavy guitars and rhythms we all love them for, that lay the foundation for their sound.
 
“For Those That Wish to Exist” is Architects first album since 2018’s “Holy Hell”, and a lot of inspiration for songs came from the uncertainty that defined 2020 as a whole.
