“It has gradually become apparent that we need to go our separate ways, but we remain close friends."
Fox League has recruited none other than British metalcore act Architects to start the 2023 rugby season with a bang.
"When are we gonna go on strike and get rid of these insane venue merch cuts?"
"There’s no need for violence; there’s no need to run up onstage and do this shit in 20-f***ing-23."
“Life goes on; social media is not real life. When you play the shows and see what these new songs mean to people and their connection with them, that’s what it’s all about.”
These gigs just got a whole lot bigger!
The announcement comes upon the release of their tenth album, the classic symptoms of a broken spirit.
A New Moral Low Ground continues the band’s exploration of industrial and electronic influences
"The latest track to be released from their forthcoming studio album 'the classic symptoms of a broken spirit', 'deep fake' continues the band's exploration of electronic and industrial elements, pitting gritty synths against wailing guitar leads."
THIS IS NOT A DRILL FRIENDS. NEW ARCHITECTS IS HERE. New single and Video Tear Gas + New Album 'The Classic Symptoms of a Broken Spirit' is out October 21.
"when we were young is a song that recognises what is gained and what is lost as we get older" says Dan Searle. "as the world unfolds around us we can become overwhelmed by its endless complexity. when i was 20 I thought I had the whole thing sussed, today i’m pretty sure i’ll never understand reality. we lose our innocence as we age, and although fatalism and cynicism can creep in, we also begin to shift our focus toward gratitude for existence and for those that we love."

Our gods truly have abandoned us.
Lost together in a holy hell with no gods.
Might as well quit your band now; won't be as good as this.
