R.I.P Architects Guitarist Tom Searle

Today has brought with it the sad news that Architects founding member and guitarist, Tom Searle, passed away from his 3 year battle with cancer. My thoughts are with the lads of Architects and his family at this time.

It was announced by fellow band mate and brother, Dan Searle, that Tom died just after midnight on August 20th. After a moving Facebook post, brothers from all over our music scene were brought together in mourning and remembrance for their fallen comrade. Bands such as Parkway Drive, Stray From The Path, Enter Shikari and Gallows all wrote heartfelt goodbyes.

He was a great musician and a fantastic influence and will be missed by all. In memory I will be listening to Architects flawless back catalogue remembering him for what I knew him for. Making thought provoking and moving music with one of Britain’s finest bands.

Rest in peace Tom.
