With album number nine, 'For Those That Wish To Exist', Architects are switching up the status quo in more ways than one. The fifteen-track full-length defies the short, sharp releases of singles and EP’s in a fast paced music industry, in favour of a lengthy LP that serves up a heavy dose of lyrical reality, analysing our collective actions that are directly affecting planet earth's destruction and, moreover, our ability to rally round as a society to strive for a better, brighter future.
2020 is a year which has been so God awful it is as if it tumbled from the blackened soul of Lucifer himself, with most of us literally locked inside our own homes for months, the country, scratch that THE WORLD, on its collective knees, and no live music to soothe our pain and misery. So although Download 2021 is yet 10-long months away it is no surprise, following their recent announcement, that excitement is already creeping towards fever pitch at the mere thought of seeing the bands we love thrill us from the festival's stages next year.
Last week we were lucky enough to attend the Cardiff leg of the MTV Unplugged tour, headlined by rock legends Biffy Clyro. Delivering a set of 22 stunning, stripped-back versions of their career spanning hits it was a night that we'll never forget. Check out our photo gallery here!
Reigning Days bring the rock with the release of their new record Eclipse, recently dropped via Marshall Records - is this debut album going to be groundbreaking or leave fans wanting more?
We headed to Download Festival 2017 to see if the 15th edition would be just as much fun as those before it. With System of a Down, Biffy Clyro and Aerosmith headlining there really was something for everyone to enjoy.
