"Day In Day Out", the new video from ARCHITECTS, can be viewed below (courtesy of AltPress.com). The clip was filmed on October 8, 2010 at Koko in London, England and follows mainman Sam Carter through a series of beautifully shot scenes that culminates with a gigantic performance scene that is bound to ignite much interest in the band from those yet to experience its monstrous stage show.

The "Day In Day Out" digital single was released in September via all digital platforms.

Commented Sam Carter: "'Day In Day Out' is our first single and will also be the opening track and the perfect introduction to our new album. Lyrically, it touches on a running theme through the album which is basically our lives and the way we lead them. We spend a lot of time away from home to do what we do and it doesn't always feel like it’s worth it. The song is questioning what we do, but it is also very positive and is about keeping your head up even when things aren't going your way.

"Parts of our new record will definitely surprise some people, but I think this song has more familiar aspects of 'Hollow Crown' whilst still showing glimpses of where we've taken our song writing on the new record."
