Architects claim UK number one with new album, ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’

By March 5, 2021 Culture, News

It is official, ARCHITECTS have claimed the UK number 1 spot on the album charts, beating out competition from the likes of Maximo Park, Alice Cooper and Digga D.

The band are actually number 1 on (all UK):

The Official Album Chart
The Official Record Store Chart
The Official Download Albums Chart
The Official Vinyl Albums Chart
AND the Official Rock And Metal Albums Chart (their fifth number 1 on this chart)

Further making a mockery of the tired ‘rock is dead’ trope, and following the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, The Foo Fighters, You Me At Six and last week’s number 1 artists, Mogwai at the top of the 2021 album charts, ARCHITECTS victory is one not just for the band and their team, but most importantly for their incredible fan base that rallied around this chart charge.

“I cannot begin to tell you how much this means to us. Thank you to every single person who bought this record. We love you so much and we could not have done this without you. To have an album that connects this much, with what we’re talking about – trying and pushing for a better world – it’s unbelievable. As ever, everything we do is for Tom Searle, our brother.” 
Sam Carter, ARCHITECTS

ARCHITECTS also announced a handful of very special, incredibly intimate shows for summer 2021. With two dates at Pryzm in Kingston (for Banquet Records) on the 6th and 7th August (both sold out in 3 seconds) and dates in Liverpool (O2 Academy 2) and Leeds (Stylus) on the 23rd and 24th July respectively going on sale and selling out in around 3 seconds. Their current single ‘Meteor’ is now on the Radio 1 B-List (their highest placing so far), and the band were invited on to the Radio 1 Rock Show last weekend for a very special take over, that you can listen to – HERE
