Always being underdogs and slightly disregarded on the metal scene they’re placed in, Architects are one of those underrated bands who’ve always deserved a bit more attention than they actually receive. Now with the release of ‘Hollow Crown’ in just a few short days, this could easily be something of the past. DEAD PRESS! caught up with guitarists Tom Searle and Tim Hillier-Brook on the Stoke date during their headlining tour, and were invited on their tour bus to have a few words with them – but not before showing off the tour ‘friendship hat’ between the three bands, and Tom has a quick play on Skate on the XBox 360:

It has just reached 5:00PM and DEAD PRESS!‘s Zach and Ruth are outside of the Manchester Academy building waiting to begin their interview with rather new Welsh post-hardcore upstarts, The Blackout. After going the wrong way two or three times and finally being accompanied with the band’s tour manager they finally get into the building. On their way up the backstage staircase they come across vocalist Sean Smith and guitarist James Davies, and are then directed into the band’s dressing room to begin their interview. In the room are various other members of The Blackout, and their support acts Flood Of Red and Pierce The Veil. After sitting down and Sean Smith “bullying” the band’s other vocalist Gavin Butler to not answer any questions during the interview, the barrage of questions began:

The date is April 29th 2007, and it’s now 5pm. Zebrahead have just finished their 30 minute set for Give It A Name, and DEAD PRESS!‘s Zach and Ruth are being led backstage to interview Cute Is What We Aim For. Upon arriving in a small room, which has nothing but a table with a laptop, a couple of chairs, and a box full of water bottles, they find the band’s manager. A few minutes later and Cute Is What We Aim For frontman Shaant Hacikyan enters the room, wearing an ordinary pair of jeans, a bob hat, white shirt and a red jacket. He greets them both friendly with a handshake and introduces himself before starting the interview.
