Architects have shared a new video for 'Death Is Not Defeat’

Architects have shared a new video for 'Death Is Not Defeat’.

It’s the latest cut from the band’s new album; the follow-up to 2016’s ‘All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us’, 'Holy Hell' arrived last week and marks their first full-length since the passing of Tom Searle.

“In those first months after Tom’s death, I didn’t deal with it at all and I felt so unhappy and anxious,” drummer Dan Searle explains. “I’d ignored it and just tried to cope. But I knew that at some point, I had to learn from it.”

“It’s at times like that you ask yourself, ‘What is left?’” adds vocalist Sam Carter. “As a group of friends, we had to find something.”

“Ultimately, there were two choices,” Dan continues. “Feel sorry for yourself and believe the world to be a horrible place and let it defeat you. Or let it inspire us to live the life that Tom would have wanted us to live. I was very worried about people taking away a despondent message from the album. I felt a level of responsibility to provide a light at the end of the tunnel for people who are going through terrible experiences.”
