(Metal Hammer) The prospect of Architects playing live without the late Tom Searle is "frightening," his brother Dan has admitted. The drummer says their first shows without the guitarist, who died from cancer aged just 28 last month, will be an "enormous challenge" which will bring out a lot of "difficult emotions" - but the band see them as an opportunity to celebrate Tom's life.

Dan says: "It's difficult to know what to expect from these shows. This is such a unique set of circumstances. Perhaps other bands would have cancelled, and I wouldn't blame them. It's not comfortable. It's frightening.

"It's going to force us to face a lot of the difficult emotions that grief inevitably brings about. Being on stage without him, headlining venues that we always dreamt about playing together and performing songs that he wrote about his own mortality - it's going to be an enormous challenge. What I do hope is that we all find some catharsis from performing.

"I don't expect closure, I don't know if I'll ever experience such a thing, but perhaps we can find some solace, comfort, peace or relief from getting on stage each night." Read more here.
