Architects, Live in Bristol
Venue: Motion, Bristol
Brighton metallers kick off landmark UK tour in style
A leaking, acoustics-ruining skate-park-cum-nightclub in a Bristol industrial estate might not initially seem like a triumphant setting, but when you consider Architects’ first stop on their biggest UK jaunt to date has already been upgraded from the impressive, swanky surroundings of the Anson Rooms, the noise and feverish atmosphere created by the packed mass inside Motion are testament to how far the band have come on the back of last year’s career-best Lost Forever//Lost Together.
Having now developed a sound that’s unquestionably their own, and a following built on doggedly sticking to their guns and old-fashioned elbow grease, it’s fitting to see such anticipation for a band getting their dues just over a decade into a prolific career.
