True musical pioneers grow, evolve, and aren’t afraid to follow their hearts. Driven by self-belief and inner strength, creative greatness and artistic progression means being unafraid of challenges and not relying on past glories and sticking to the status quo. It’s a notion that Architects understand more than most, and that’s why the Brighton quintet have created the most ambitious and enriched album of their career. “I can’t think of anything I’m more proud of in my life,” smiles frontman Sam Carter. “It feels like the whole time we have been a band we have been working towards something, and this is it. ‘The Here And Now’ sums up Architects and the last four years in one, 10-track record.”
And the 21-year-old vocalist isn’t kidding. If 2009’s critically acclaimed Century Media debut “Hollow Crown” pushed back the boundaries of their metalcore roots, then “The Here And Now” is a leap forward of massive proportions. While initial ideas began straight after the completion of “Hollow Crown”, the catalyst to making “The Here And Now” the awe-inspiring fourth album it is, came while the band were midway through an American tour. Downtrodden from a punishing schedule, Architects found themselves collectively questioning their existence; tired and burnt out. But then the penny dropped…
“We were fed up and it felt like everything was getting to us,” reflects Sam. “We were fed up of being in a band, fed up of being away from home, and then one day we were all sitting around and it clicked and we were like ‘shit, we’re really, really lucky to be doing what we are doing, we are living our dreams and we should be having the most fun ever! Tom was like ‘we need to live in the here and now, and enjoy every day we have’,” continues the frontman. “And his comment made sense to all of us. We realized we should grow up and stop moaning about what we haven’t got and enjoy what we do have. We forgot the fun side of everything we were doing as a band – we were in America, five mates together having a massive laugh and doing what we love.”
