Best Band

The Architects

The Architects don't stop. Because nobody can stop them -- not indifferent music-industry lackeys and not a teenage American market enamored of black bangs and screamo. The Architects will still play a limited Warped Tour run, open for Rancid, headline at tiny KC venues and hold four-hour rehearsals several times a week so that every show they put on is an exercise in jackhammering the shit out of rock and roll's front porch and trampling its rose bed. Ten years as a band (most of them spent tearing up North America as the Gadjits) have hardened -- not jaded -- them, and that attitude positively screams on their latest release, Revenge. That record is smart, hard and pulls no punches. Just like its builders.
