ARCHITECTS: 'Hollow Crown' European Release Delayed

"Hollow Crown", the new album from the British modern metal band ARCHITECTS, has had its European release date (outside U.K.) pushed back to the end of February from the previously announced January 26. The delay is being blamed on "logistical problems at distribution."

The CD will now be made available on the following dates:

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, Italy: Friday, February 20
Spain, Portugal: Tuesday, February 24
Sweden, Finland, Hungary: Wednesday, February 25
Rest Of Europe: Monday, February 23

"Early Grave", the new video from ARCHITECTS, can be viewed below. The clip 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."

To get a glimpse of the making of the "Early Grave" video as well as to hear three brand-new songs ("Follow The Water", "Numbers Count For Nothing", "Left With A Last Minute"), check out the new ARCHITECTS widget on the band's MySpace page.
