Architects and guitarist Josh Middleton (Sylosis) have parted ways. Middleton played in Architects as a live member in 2016 after the death of Tom Searle, and joined the band in 2017 as a full-time member. Architects has not yet announced a new guitarist.
"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."
