Architects is a metalcore/mathcore band based in Brighton, UK. The band went through several name changes before they became Architects. Their first name was InHarmonic, and this was swiftly dropped for Counting the Days. CTD lasted for a couple of years, before they became Architects.

They are currently signed to Century Media Records worldwide and Distort Entertainment in Canada. The band have toured the UK and Europe with the likes of Bring Me the Horizon, SikTh and The Chariot. They have played at a number of independent UK festivals, as well as the prestigious Download Festival in 2007 and 2009. The band have completed a European tour and a Canadian tour, receiving great receptions from crowds in different countries and gradually spreading their fan base. They released their second album Ruin on June 26, 2007, and released a split EP with UK band Dead Swans in 2008, following the release with a double headed tour of the UK.

The band has recently recorded their third album, 'Hollow Crown', which was released in the UK and Australia on January 26, 2009. It was released in the USA and Canada on February 10, Mainland Europe on the 20th, and Japan on the 21st.

They recently toured the US with Suicide Silence, Emmure, Beneath the Massacre, and The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza followed by the European Altamonte Never Say Die! tour with Whitechapel, Protest the Hero, Carnifex, Parkway Drive, Unearth and Despised Icon.

The band's success has been gradual. [2] They said in an interview that they were happy when they got signed to Century Media: "We’re really excited to have finally got the deal finished and signed, so much so that we all went out for a pizza the day that everything was finally made 100% official." [3]

Their 2009 touring plans are some of the bands biggest tours yet. In October 2009 they headline the 2009 Altamonte Never Say Die! Tour with support from Despised Icon, As Blood Runs Black, HORSE The Band, Iwrestledabearonce, Oceano and The Ghost Inside. They are also set to be touring the US as openers on the 2009 Epitaph Records tour alongside Every Time I Die and Bring Me The Horizon.
