New Music Video: Architects (UK) - "Gravedigger"

>> British metalcore thrashers Architects (UK) have released a music video for the song "Gravedigger," the second off of their latest album Lost Forever // Lost Together. The album was unleashed onto the world back in January via Epitaph Records. The video features a live performance of the song off of the band's recent headlining tour. Although the music isn't live, the video demonstrates the crushing power of the band and the demanding presence of front man Sam Carter. 

>> "Gravedigger" is the album opener and with good reason. It starts out with a slow, melodic guitar and then breaks into a relentless punk tidal wave, which is shortly followed by a crushing breakdown. This song is one of the heaviest off of the album, and it also has one of the catchiest choruses within the 11 songs. Lyrically, the song discusses crooked leaders and the people they oppress. Carter points out that these corrupt leaders are the gravediggers with "blood on their hands." He feels that they are using their power to gain for themselves, and that they do not care what happens to the rest of us. 

>> Architects (UK) recently finished a US headline tour and have just started the Lost Forever // Lost Together European Summer tour that spans from June 6th to August 24th. The band will hit numerous countries and many well known summer festivals including Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, and Reading & Leads.
