Metalcore pioneers and kings of the surprise music release Architects have gone and caught everyone off guard again by dropping a huge new single “when we were young” out of nowhere. The song features a driving industrial influenced main riff which quickly evolves as drummer Dan Searle transitions to a classic hardcore/punk backbeat not often used by the band, followed by an big anthemic chorus with Sam Carter’s iconic vocals soaring through and of course no Architects song is complete without some sort of pit opener and WWWY does not disappoint returning to a half time beatdown version of the opening riff! The video, directed by Dan Searle takes a simple but effective route with the band performing in the middle of circular camera track with some fancy lighting and blue hues.
The release comes ahead of the bands arena tour next month with support coming from Sleep Token & Malevolence. Dates below!
