Last week as part of The Bay Series, the power-packed line-up of Chubby & The Gang, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Biffy Clyro took over Alexandra Head in Cardiff Bay. Live music has been making a much-loved return to the Welsh capital and this show was a night to remember for all in attendance.
The UK’s biggest party was welcomed back to Bramham Park on the 26th - 28th August 2021. This year Leeds festival had sold-out in record time, and had been sold-out for months, so to say people were hyped would be the understatement of the year.
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.

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.
