The new drop takes place in advance of Architects new album For Those Who Wish To Exist due for release 26 February 2021.

Following on from their hugely triumphant live stream event at The Royal Albert Hall the band have also shared a video for the new track titled Black Lungs.

This is the second single the band have dropped off their forthcoming ninth studio record. The first, the colossal single Animals has already amassed more than 6 million streams.

The Black Lungs video was directed by Jeb Hardwick, the track calls for us to examine the role we are currently playing in the destruction of the world with barren landscapes and foreshadowing of extinction.


The album will tackle the biggest questions facing the future of our planet with their grandest, most expansive sonic offering yet. Hugely ambitious, self-produced record, the band build upon their much loved, hallmark heavy and intense sound, by bringing in layers of electronics, orchestral strings, brass instruments and choirs.

The record’s 15-tracks hang in a limbo between energising positivity that it is not too late to correct our collective course and paralysing negativity of defeatism; where hope and despondency are bed-fellows triggered daily by the simple act of existence.

A reflection of human condition, For Those That Wish To Exist calls for all of us to rise to challenge established models and strive for a collective betterment. Such concerns that have long been prevalent in the music of a band who have continually championed and shared their platform with causes such as Sea Shepherd are outspoken critics of barbaric exercises such as fox hunting, and who focus on sustainability in everything from their touring to merch production.
