Architects Share Orchestral Version of “Animals”


Architects, the extremely popular British metalcore band featuring Sylosis mastermind Josh Middleton, have shared a new version of their 2020 song, “Animals,” recorded with an orchestra.

Tracked at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in London, the reimagined version of the hit track was funded by Amazon. The band explains of the effort:

“This was an amazing opportunity to reimagine Animals entirely. We took away the jagged synths, replaced them with an orchestra and recorded it in the world-famous Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. The result is unlike anything we’ve ever done before. We hope you enjoy it.”

“Animals” appears on Architects’ most recent album, For Those That Wish to Exist, which came out in February via Epitaph Records and reached #1 in the U.K. in its first week of release; order it here.
