Architects live at Royal Albert Hall

November 25, 2020

Live shows have been absent from our lives for months now. When the lockdowns started, shows and entire tours had to be canceled, it didn’t take long that bands started to search for alternatives to reach out to the fans and give them the closest experience to a live show that there is right now – live streams. One of the bands that chose this option is the UK Metalcore band Architects. Since streams don’t have an audience, they can take place in any kind of venue. But Architects decided to choose a beautiful historic place – the Royal Albert Hall. The Royal Albert Hall is located in South Kensington, London. It was opened in 1871 and has a capacity of about 5.200 people. 30 minutes before the stream was due to start, the chat had already been opened for people. Reading some of the posts, you could feel the excitement of the fans. Show start was set for 8 pm GMT. At about 8.05 pm the stream started with the camera walking along the halls [Read More]

Thematically, The Pride’s music deals with heartbreak, addiction and recovery, anxiety and depression and resentment with an emphasis on admitting fault, taking responsibility and trudging forward.

Frontman Awsten Knight shares: “I’ve always wanted Waterparks to have a live concert DVD because I used to love watching them from other bands so much. The thing is, I wanted to approach it differently and try to make it into more of an art piece rather than strictly documentation of a night. As a co-director, I wanted it to be like an IMAX Waterparks show but in an alternate universe and so every song is warped out and stylized to look how it feels to me while [Read More]
