Architects wrestle with grief on ‘Holy Hell’

It’s their eighth album and the first since the passing of founding member Tom Searle.

The English metalcore group Architects have released their hotly anticipated album, Holy Hell, via Epitaph Records. It follows 2016’s All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us.

Holy Hell is the Brighton band’s first release since the passing of founding guitarist Tom Searle in August 2016, and is understandably weighted with grief.

“For me, broadly speaking, Holy Hell is about pain: the way we process it, cope with it, and live with it,” drummer Dan Searle—and Tom’s twin brother—said in a statement. “There is value in pain. It’s where we learn, it’s where we grow.”
