For Those That Wish To Exist finds Architects tackling the biggest questions facing the future of our planet with their grandest, most expansive sonic offering yet building upon the band’s hallmark post-metalcore sound by layering a burgeoning influence of electronics and orchestral strings, horns and choirs. The result is a rich tapestry that transcends the limitations of genre and rewards exploration and immersion in its journey. The record’s 15-tracks hang in a limbo between energizing positivity that it is not too late to correct our collective course and paralyzing negativity of defeatism; where hope and despondency are bed-fellows triggered daily by the simple act of existence. A reflection of the human condition, For Those That Wish To Exist calls for all of us to rise to challenge established models and strive for a collective betterment.
The album debuted #1 on the Digital Album Chart, #6 on the Current Rock Album chart, and #80 on the Billboard 200. The singles “Meteor,” “Dead Butterflies,” “Black Lungs,” and colossal single “Animals” have amassed 58M+ streams and 18M+ YouTube views. Additionally, “Animals” charted Top 5 at rock radio.
The band recently released an orchestral performance of “Dying Is Absolutely Safe” live from Middle Farm Studios featuring members of the Parallax Orchestra.
