Architects are a British metalcore band from Brighton, England. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Sam Carter, drummer Dan Searle and his twin brother, guitarist and keyboardist Tom Searle and Alex Dean on bass guitar. The band went through several name changes before they decided upon Architects. Their first name was Inharmonic, which was swiftly changed to Counting the Days. After a couple of years this was in turn changed to Architects. They have released six studio albums and one split ep with Dead Swans.

They released their debut album Nightmares in 2006 on in at the Deep End records. After the departure of the original vocalist, Matt Johnson, Carter joined the band and made his first appearance on Architects' second album Ruin released in 2007 through United By Fate records. In 2009 the band released Hollow Crown through Century Media records. They then released their fourth album The Here And Now in 2011, which showed the band step in a more melodic "clean-cut post-hardcore" direction. Upon its release the album received critical acclaim but was panned by their fanbase. The next year Architects returned to their original style with their fifth album Daybreaker, with more politicised lyrics as opposed to the violent and comedic lyrics that can be heard throughout their older work. Their sixth album Lost Forever // Lost Together was released in 2014 through Epitaph Records.
