The Architects support My Chemical Romance on World Contamination Tour

The Architects are currently supporting My Chemical Romance on tour!

The Architects

With their latest album The Hard Way keeping them busy for nearly the last two years, the Phillips brothers - Brandon, Zach, Adam - and their best friend Keenan, otherwise known as The Architects, have packed their bags again for another cross country trek, this time on The World Contamination Tour supporting My Chemical Romance.

Produced, mixed, and engineered by KC's own Aaron Conner (Cher, 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G.), The Hard Way is drawn from the deep lyrical pools of songsmiths like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Tom Petty, while the roaring, crashing sonic inspiration comes from the likes of The Clash, AC/DC, The Replacements and The Who.

"We are still our father's sons with respect to our heroes," says singer/songwriter and eldest brother Brandon describing the evolution of The Architects sound and the creation of The Hard Way.

Still stubbornly free of gimmicks, costumes and celebreality bullshit, The Architects are all piss and vinegar and good tunes, delivered with guts and authenticity…just as it should be.

With a road history that includes tours with Flogging Molly, The Bronx, Valient Thorr, Rancid, Murphy's Law, Meat Puppets, Social Distortion and more, The Architects are no strangers to keeping the adrenaline at eleven.

Their local tab The Kansas City Star once said, "Their music is hellaciously primal but not primitive - hellbent, but precise." Pastepunk calls their music "'77 style anthem-blaring punk rock oozing' through the cracks of the band's hard-shell garage-rock." INK says, "what distances them from most modern rock is the sense of danger in their loud, sometimes harsh creation."
