They’re arguably one of the best metalcore bands in the world right now, but how did they get to this point? How did they all cope following the passing of their guitarist/songwriter/brother Tom Searle in 2016 and how has this all influenced their new album Holy Hell (out November 9th).
Well, all has been revealed in a new Architects documentary/film called Holy Ghost which takes fans behind the scenes to answer all the burning questions they’ve got about the band, their past and future. The feature starts with how the band came to the decision to head down to Australia with Bring Me The Horizon in late 2016 (revisit what went down at their Brisbane show here), merely weeks after Tom had passed away and chronicles how they came to writing songs for the new album and how Josh Middleton was asked (and suggested) to join the band moving forward.
The Tom Welsch directed doco also features intimate interviews with frontman Sam Carter and drummer Dan Searle (Tom’s twin brother), bassist Ali Dean and guitarists Adam Christianson and Josh Middleton as they prepared for the biggest show of their careers, selling out the 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace in London.
Warning, tears will definitely be shed…
Our dear friend Tom Welsh did an unbelievable job on Holy Ghost. It beautifully captures the last couple of years. I look forward to sharing it with everyone tomorrow ❤️
