Architects had been planning to return to the concert stage this year, but according to a new statement from the band “logistical issues” is being cited as the cause for the cancellation of their 2022 North American tour. Architects was set to hit the road with We Came as Romans and Like Moths to Flames, launching on Sept. 6 in Minneapolis. The tour was in support of the band’s 2021 release, For Those That Wish to Exist.
In their statement, the band writes, “It pains us to announce that despite the best efforts of everyone in our band, our crew and the rest of the team, a number of logistical issues have forced us to cancel our upcoming North American tour. We had been looking forward to playing so many new songs for you, but everything from transportation to visa approval timelines and other hurdles have made the trip impossible at this stage. We recognize the last few years have been a challenging time for everyone and we were really excited to perform for you and share moments together that only live music can facilitate. We will announce new plans to return as soon as we can. The last thing we want to do is announce new dates that we will be unable to uphold. Thank you for your understanding. We will be back. In the meantime, refunds for tickets & VIP will be made automatically to the method of payment used to purchase.”
We Came as Romans also issued a statement following the cancellation news: “We’re extremely saddened to share the cancellation of the For Those That Wish to Exist U.S. Tour. Architects are facing logistical issues that prevent this tour from happening. However, we’ve got some exciting news to share with you soon. We can’t wait.”
