Architects bassist rejoins band
Less than six months after quitting UK metalcore band Architects, bass player Alex "Ali" Dean has rejoined the group. His statement is as follows: "I'm very happy to be able to say that I'm back! Being able to stay at home for the past few months have given my family and I the opportunity adjust to what happened last year and I know it's done us all a lot of good. After missing out on the few tours that the guys did without me I felt pretty bad about not being a part of the band anymore, it was something that I constantly thought about but I knew that I needed to take at least some time off to deal with things back home. "Now things are moving forward for my family and this is what I need to be doing! I also want to thank you all for the support you gave me when it was announced that I was leaving the band, it really meant a lot and helped me through a pretty rough time! See you all soon!"
