After living with and battling cancer for over 3 years, it’s with incredible regret and sadness that we report Tom Searle, guitarist and one of the founding members of Brighton metalcore outfit Architects, has tragically passed away, aged 28. Though taking time off the road to recover and receive treatment, which seemed to be heading in the right direction in the past couple of months, things sadly deteriorated in the last couple of weeks.
This news came to light earlier today, via a post made on the band’s Facebook page by drummer and Tom‘s twin brother, Dan. You can read the full statement that was posted below:
