Architects drummer Dan Searle explains some of the concepts behind the album:
“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. 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.”
For Those Who Wish To Exist is available for pre-order from a number of retailers. Details can be found on the official Architects website.
