ARCHITECTS return with new song & video “Animals”

Brighton metallers ARCHITECTS have released their new single and music video “Animals”, marking the band’s first new music since their 2018 album ‘Holy Hell’.

The new track comes from the band’s new album For Those That Wish to Exist, to be released on February 26 via Epitaph Records.

“This album was me looking at our inability to change to a way of life that would sustain the human race and save the planet,” explains drummer and songwriter Dan Searle.

“I wanted to look in the mirror and ask ourselves the question of what are going to do, as opposed to trying to point the finger at politicians. Change has to start on a personal level. The world has developed a culture of wanting someone else to deal with it, when we need to take our own responsibility. It has to start there.”

“Animals” Lyrics:

I do my best but everything seems ominous
Not feeling blessed, quite the opposite
This shouldn’t feel so monotonous
It never rains but it pours

We’re just a bunch of fucking animals
But we’re afraid of the outcome
Don’t cry to me because the fiction that we’re living in
Says I should pull the pin

Should I just pull the pin?

I dug my heels
I thought that I could stop the rot
The ground gave way
Now I’ve lost the plot
Fucked it again
That was all I’ve got
It never rains but it pours

Life is just a dream within a….

Buried under dirt
A diamond in the mud
Infinity is waiting there
‘Cause nobody can burn a glass cathedral

….dream within a dream within a….
