Architects have announced they are parting ways with guitarist/vocalist Josh Middleton. A statement issued by the band on May 28 reads:
It is with a heavy heart that we announce Josh’s time in the band has come to an end. It has gradually become apparent that we need to go our separate ways, but we remain close friends.
Josh was a life raft for the band after we lost Tom and he gave us a way to keep the band alive through the hardest experience or our lives. We will always be grateful to him for that.
We wish him the best in his future endeavours and we suggest that everyone keeps an eye out for the new Sylosis record later this year.
