ARCHITECTS: Helsinki Interview, Performance Footage Available

Finland's HardcoreSounds.Net conducted an interview with vocalist Sam Carter of the British quintet ARCHITECTS prior to the band's April 20, 2009 concert at Nosturi in Helsinki. Watch the 10-minute chat below. Also available is performance footage from the concert.

ARCHITECTS' latest album, "Hollow Crown", was released in February.

The band's "Early Grave" video was created by up-and-coming director Adam Powell, who previously worked with ARCHITECTS on the videos for "Always" and "Buried At Sea".

Commented guitarist Tom Searle: "We chose to do the video for 'Early Grave' because it's just about the hardest-hitting song we've ever written. It's one of our collective favourite songs on 'Hollow Crown' so it seemed an obvious choice. We shot the video in an aircraft hanger in Surrey where they shoot 'Top Gear' — it was awesome. We've done enough videos now to know the drill so we got a few beers in and had a few friends come down and hang out — it was pretty relaxed. The video tells the story of a man who wears different masks — it relates to a lot of the lyrical content of the record, rather than specifically this song."
