Architects struggle with identity in Crushing Song ‘deep fake’

0

A “deep fake” is described as synthetic media where the existing image of a person is replaced with the likeness of someone else. And if you feel like you don’t quite feel like yourself, architects can understand. The band just released a crushing new song called “Deep Fake” which asks questions related to identity and self-confidence to embrace who you are.

“deep fake” is the last song from the band’s upcoming album, classic symptoms of a broken spirit, and it continues their musical evolution. As you’d expect, it’s a heavier track with gritty guitar work and heart-pounding beats, but it also features more synthesized and hypnotic melodic verses before Sam Carter kicks off the chorus.

The track is accompanied by a performance video directed by Jeb Hardwick featuring the band playing in a darkened room, sometimes lit by backlit screens. And that bit of anonymity fits well into the themes of the song. Take a closer look at the video and lyrics below and if you like what you hear, the track is available here.

Architects, “deep fake”

we, we want to swim in the deepest depths of oblivion
we want to know that the gods control us
we see the cards and we go to bed
we play the game but it gets old fast
they took the ark and sold it in parts
they got a fist full of fucking gold
a return on the souls they sold
do you remember who we are?
these tyrants will build an abyss
but the rest of us wish we existed
we hide like a shadow in the dark
in the dark
Be the change you want to see
No not like this
it’s a risk, we all agree
damn the fucking facts
but it bleeds right in front of me
we are attacked
yes, we all know that these rights are sacred
we will never leave this shell
hope you don’t miss your gold now
save us a special place in hell
you’re the reason why our hearts ache
fake deep
we are one
we see the cards and we go to bed
we play the game but it gets old fast
we took the ark and sold it as parts
they got a fist full of fucking gold
a return on the souls they sold
do you remember who we are?
these tyrants will build an abyss
but the rest of us wish we existed
we fight with a shadow in the dark
fake deep

Architects, “deep fake”

As noted, “deep fake” will appear on Architects’ classic symptoms of a broken spiritwhich is due out on October 21. Pre-orders are currently being taken here.

Meanwhile, the band had planned to come to the United States to support the new album this fall, but that won’t happen after the announcement of a cancellation earlier this month. The band cited “logistical issues” for the cancellation. The group said everything from transportation to visa approval times posed challenges for them as they tried to create shows pushed back by the pandemic lockdown.

That said, UK and European shows will take place later this year. See dates and get ticket details here.
