Architects to release 10th album ‘The Classic Symptoms of a Broken Spirit’ on Oct. 21

British metalcore band Architects will release “The Classic Symptoms of a Broken Spirit,” their 10th studio album, on Oct. 21, 2022, via Epitaph Records. They also have released the new single ”Tear Gas.” Watch the video below, and pre-order the new album here.

“The Classic Symptoms of a Broken Spirit” is the follow-up to Architects’ 2021 album “For Those That Wish to Exist.” The band barely had time to celebrate success when it began the process of writing the songs that make up the new record. It was produced by Dan Searle and Josh Middleton, with additional production from Sam Carter at Deacon’s Middle Farm Studios and the band’s own HQ, Electric Studios in Brighton. The band was buoyed by finally being back in the room together after its last album was made mostly remote due to COVID restrictions. The result was something altogether more “free, playful and spontaneous,” Searle, the band’s drummer and songwriter said.

“This one feels more live, more exciting and more fun–it has that energy,” frontman Sam Carter said. “We wanted it to be a lot more industrial and electronic.”
