British quintet ARCHITECTS has inked a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. The group's sophomore album, "Ruin", which previously saw a limited release in the UK and Canada, will now be officially issued in North America on August 5. The band and the label wanted to include content that would be exclusive to the reintroduction of "Ruin", so along with the album’s eleven original tracks will be a bonus cut, "Broken Clocks", several music videos and a tour documentary.

Drummer Dan Searle commented on the group's new label home: "Everyone at Century Media seems to be 100% behind what we're doing. They match our ambition to push this band as far as we can. This is a whole new era for us, and we’re really excited about seeing where it’s going to take us next."

Coinciding with the re-release of "Ruin" will be a massive North American tour slated for September and October (details coming soon), alongside a slew of European dates with the likes of UNEARTH, PARKWAY DRIVE, DESPISED ICON and MISERY SIGNALS.

Before making their way stateside, ARCHITECTS will hit the studio this month to record their third full-length and official Century Media debut, which is tentatively set for a January 2009 release.
