In support of their November 2018 full-length album on Epitaph / UNFD titled Holy Hell, UK metal beasts Architects are currently on the last week of their North American tour with Thy Art Is Murder and While She Sleeps.

Architects blasted new tracks in NYC during their stay at Brooklyn Steel on May 16th, performing fresh numbers like set starter “Death Is Not Defeat,” along with “Modern Misery,” “Royal Beggars,” “Mortal After All,” “Hereafter,” the LP’s title-track, and closing song “Doomsday.” The chaos continued on stage and in the pit while big favorites like “These Colours Don’t Run,” “A Match Made in Heaven,” Naysayer,” “Gravedigger,” “Gone With the Wind” and more echoed throughout the popular BK venue.

Thy Art Is Murder dished out fan-pleasers as well during their support slot, playing hits “Reign of Darkness,” “The Purest Strain of Hate,” “Slaves Beyond Death,” “Coffin Dragger,” “Fur and Claw,” and a few others before closing out with the title-track to their brand new effort, Human Target.

While She Sleeps raided the stage with their new songs “Anti-Social” and “The Guilty Party” from their 2019 record, So What?, piling on “Civil Isolation,” “Silence Speaks,” “Hurricane” and a handful more from 2017’s You Are We.
