UK's top metalcore band Architects have officially signed to Epitaph Records, with plans to release their new album in 2014.
The band boasts: "We're absolutely thrilled to be signing to Epitaph! Epitaph is a label that we've admired for a long time and when we left our old label we cited them as our ideal home so we're delighted that it has become a reality. To join a roster alongside Every Time I Die, Converge, Bring Me The Horizon, letlive., The Ghost Inside and Parkway Drive, is an honour and we can't wait to begin working together in this new chapter for Architects."
The band is currently in Gothenburg, Sweden recording with Fredrik Nordström (Bring Me The Horizon, At The Gates, In Flames, Dimmu Brogir), with the plans to release the new album, and a follow-up to 2012's critically acclaimed Daybreaker, in early 2014.
Regarding the new album, the band hints: "Fredrik has worked on a bunch of amazing sounding records over the last 20 years and he's a perfect match for our band. The record is arguably our heaviest record to date, but I'm not going to waste anyone's time with the standard metal band one liners about their new album sounding 'huge', you're just going to have to wait and see."
ARCHITECTS have announced an extensive headlining tour across UK and Europe in March 2014. Starting in Manchester (UK) on March 7th, this tour will take the band through 15 different countries, rounding it up in Paris (FR) on April 16th. Please find the full list of dates below.
