Architects founding guitarist and songwriter Tom Searle unfortunately passed away earlier this year after a long battle with cancer. The band vowed to continue on its planned touring routes, and in more recent news we've found out that Sylosis guitarist Josh Middleton will be temporarily filling Searle's shoes. On the downside, this means that Sylosis will be going on a temporary hiatus until Middleton is back with the band.
"We wish to inform our fans that Sylosis will be taking a temporary hiatus. Most will know that Josh is close friends with Architects and he will be helping out with guitar duties for their upcoming tours on the ‘All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us‘ cycle.
With respect to Sylosis fans, the band has decided to take some time off to allow Josh to focus on these commitments.
Rest assured, Sylosis will be back with a new record in the future but for now we hope we have your understanding and we’ll see you all soon!
While that sucks, we wish Architects and Middleton all the best in their touring routes.
