Architects have premiered a new docuemntary-film ‘Holy Ghost’ that focuses around the loss of their guitarist and brother, Tom Searle, who passed away from cancer in 2016.
The short film documents the band’s process of moving on after Searle’s death and how it greatly affected all of them, it’s some heavy stuff. The new release will follow with their forthcoming album, ‘Holy Hell’, arriving November 9th.
Created by Tom Walsh, the piece really is something beyond powerful and moving, you can watch it here:
Among the amazing cinematography and personal interviews that reveal some real raw emotions, an unexpected moment that caught us offguard was a clip from their live performance (at time mark 17:29) where drummer and brother or Tom, Dan Searle, makes a speech thanking fans for their unbelivable support “On behalf of Tom I would like to say thank you because he would be tearing up looking at 10,000 people here to see us play his songs” but if that wasn’t a tear jerker enough, Sam Carter then begins to perform but breaksdown crying, however fans immedialtey pick him up as they blare out the lyrics for him in a truly touching moment.
Architects will release their forthcoming album ‘Holy Hell’ on November 9th, they’ve already released three singles ‘Royal Beggars’ ‘Hereafter’ and ‘Doomsday‘, listen to them below:
