Architects - 2021

England-based post-metalcore act Architects has just announced a 2021 North America headline tour in support of their ninth studio record, For Those That Wish To Exist, which debuted #1 on the Digital Album Chart, #6 on the Current Rock Album chart, and #80 on the Billboard 200.

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

The North American tour is set to kick off in Los Angeles on November 2 and will wrap up in Minneapolis December 2. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 11 at 10 a.m. local time.

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
