Today, Architects release their new studio album the classic symptoms of a broken spirit on Epitaph Records. To celebrate the release, Architects have announced an Australian tour. Presented by Live Nation, Unify and Triple J, the tour will see the band hitting our shores in February 2023 for the first time since their ARIA No.1 album For Those That Wish To Exist. Be prepared, this will be one of THE rock shows of 2023.

“We are honestly so excited to get back to one of our favourite places in the world. Australia always makes us feel like home and has given us some incredible memories and we can’t wait to get back out and make more!” – Sam Carter

the classic symptoms of a broken spirit is the bands 10th studio album and is the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed ARIA No.1 album For Those That Wish To Exist.  The band barely had time to celebrate success when they began the process of writing the songs that make up the new record.

Produced by Dan Searle and Josh Middleton, with additional production from Sam Carter at Deacon’s Middle Farm Studios and their own HQ, Electric Studios in Brighton. The band were buoyed by finally being back in the room together after their last album was made mostly remote due to COVID restrictions, the result was something altogether more “free, playful and spontaneous” the bands drummer and songwriter Dan explains. “This one feels more live, more exciting and more fun – it has that energy. We wanted it to be a lot more industrial and electronic,” agrees frontman Sam Carter.

Layers of electronic and industrial elements infuse the album with a blast of energy that sets the cinematic moodscape for the 11-track ride. There is more than a passing nod to the band’s post-rock influences as well as now familiar fist pumping anthems such as “when we were young”, “deep fake”, tear gas” and latest single “new moral low ground”.
