Architects Emotional On First Tour Since Tom Searle's Death


(Prog) Architects drummer Dan Searle has thanked fans who have attended the band's first shows since the death of bandmate and brother Tom. Guitarist Tom Searle died last month at the age of 28 after a three-year battle with cancer and the band are on the road in Australia playing their first dates without him.

While he admits the shows have been "enormously emotional," Dan Searle says Architects made the right decision to get back to work. He says: "We're 4/7ths of our way through our first tour since Tom passed away and we're slowly adjusting to the new reality and finding our feet more with each passing day.

"There's been some enormously emotional moments for us on this tour, both on and off stage, but we're glad to be here and we can honestly say that coming to Australia was the right thing to do.

"Anyone who has experienced a big loss in their lives will know that grief comes in waves and it can hit at any given moment, so it's a bit of a lottery as to where our heads are at each night but we're getting through it, sticking together and working through it one day at a time."
