Architects live review – 02 Institute, Birmingham
Venue: 02 Institute, Birmingham
UK heavyweights Architects unleash the power and the poignancy live in Birmingham, with support from Bury Tomorrow and Stick To Your Guns
2016 has been a year of highs and extreme lows. We’ve been forced to say goodbye to some gifted musicians, and Architects guitarist and co-founder Tom Searle was one that hit our scene hard. His tragic passing at the age of 28 following a three-year battle with skin cancer was another example of the unforgiving nature of a cruel disease. What we can – and should – celebrate, however, is Tom’s unwavering spirit and the band’s incredible tenacity in the face of unbelievable adversity. That the show will go on. Which brings us to tonight – namely the heaving O2 Institute – and the first date of the UK leg of the All Our Gods… tour.
