Architects have announced two special headline dates for Melbourne and Sydney this September, as sideshows accompanying their arena tour supporting The Amity Affliction. These two intimate performances, the band’s first Australian headline dates since 2010, will feature two special guests.
Architects are regular visitors Down Under, having previously journeyed over to support Parkway Drive in 2009 and The Amity Affliction in 2012. The Brighton boys were also one of the breakthrough acts on the 2010 Soundwave lineup, embarking on an acclaimed headline tour that year.
Aussie fans have shown the band an equal amount of love in return, helping Architects’ sixth full-length release, Lost Forever // Lost Together, debut at #13 on the ARIA Charts back in March. The album also took the #1 spot in a mid-year audience poll conducted by Triple J‘s Short Fast Loud.
Lost Forever // Lost Together has been one of the most highly lauded recorded efforts of the band’s career, and has ascended as one of the most acclaimed heavy releases of 2014, even earning Architects a Best UK Band award at the prestigious Revolver Golden Gods awards in the UK.
With support from US hardcore outfit Stray From The Path, who are also featured on the Amity tour, and Sydney’s own Hand Of Mercy, who are currently prepping the release of their third album, Architects’ 2014 Australian headline dates will be something Australian fans won’t wanna miss.
