By now many music fans will have heard the extremely sad news that Architects guitarist and co-founder Tom Searle lost his brave three-year battle with cancer at only 28.
His twin brother, Architects drummer and co-founder Dan Searle announced the devastating news via Architects official Facebook page:
Dan is currently running a Just Giving page, where you can make a donation to The Martlets Hospice in Hove who took care of Tom during his brave fight. Generous fans and well wishers have donated almost £20,000 so far.
Our deepest condolences to Architects remaining members: Dan, Sam, Alex, Adam and all of Tom’s family, friends and the wider Architects family: Their fans.
In tribute to Tom’s talent as both a musician and songwriter, Epic Earworm will feature Tom in a future edition of our Rewind: Music Legacy series to showcase the immense achievements in his music career.
It’s a great loss to not only the Architects family but to the music world. Rest in Peace Tom.
