On this day, one year ago, world lost one talented and brilliant musician. I'm thankful that I've had the chance to see him perform and I'll cherish that night in my memories forever.
Miss you dearly, Tom // #fortomforever#tomsearle#architectsuk
One year 💔
As I sit here trying to come up with something to say, I feel selfish because I didn't know Tom. I never even had the opportunity to meet him. So I feel guilty for still being sad when the people that knew him best should be the ones talking about him today. While Tom was an absolute musical genius, he was so much more than just the guitarist of Architects. He was a genuinely good person who cared about other people, the world, animals. I know all of this because of shared stories from those close to him. I could have never predicted the impact Tom, and the rest of the band, would have on my life. They educated me, showed me another side of life, helped shape my morals, and all around made me a better person. Truth be told, I don't care how many people see this or how many likes it gets, but if you are reading it, pick up an Architects record and listen to it today. That's how Tom is going to live on. Gone but never forgotten, RIP Tom.
I can't believe it's been a whole year without you. All of us still miss you dearly. You are still one of my greatest influences to this day. Your music will carry on as some of the greatest I've personally ever heard. We all love you Tom, rest easy.❤️#riptomsearle#architectsuk
It's been a year since you left, Tom. 💔 I'm always thankful that i've had the chance to see you and the rest of the lads in #Architects here in Manila 2 years ago, not knowing it was the last time i will see you perform live. You may have gone with the wind, but you are not forgotten. You will always live in our hearts forever. ❤️ Rock in peace. 🤘 #ArchitectsUK#Metalcore#Metal#TomSearle
I remember first hearing @architects when I had turned 12. @samarchitects had only just joined the band and @rocksound, which I read religiously with each new issue that came out, were still writing articles about how Sam was the exciting newcomer that had yet to prove himself. The Hollow Crown album, when it was released not too long after, blew my little teenage mind and I annoyed all of my friends by having it on repeat that whole year. I then lucked out a few years later and got to see them play a tiny slot at @soundwavefest when it was still at Eastern Creek. They even did a signing tent, so I got to meet all of them (albeit very shyly because they were basically my heroes at the time and I could barely speak anything other than 'you're set was so good!' And 'thank you' when they signed a flyer I had found). They've grown in leaps and bounds since then, and knowing how much they've developed as a band makes me so proud to keep listening to them. It will never not be awful that Tom has passed, every fan, the band, and family and friends of the band will always hold him dearly in their hearts. Knowing 12 months have already transpired since his passing blows my mind. It's cliche as hell, but it honestly feels like barely two months has passed, let alone twelve. It won't ever get easier for the band, but knowing how strong they've been through it all already and that they want to continue on this much is insane. They deserve nothing but love and respect for everything they've gone through and will continue to go through. Tom will always be in all of our minds and hearts, always. R.I.P. Tom. #architects#architectsuk#hollowcrown#samcarter#alidino#alidean#alexdean#dansearle#tomsearle#joshmiddleton#riptom#rip#supportmusic#supportlivemusic#supportyourscene#architectsband
Un anno senza te.
Molti dicono che il tempo guarisca le ferite ma non credo sia vero. Mi manchi e mi sento crollare. Mi manchi e non mi sembra ancora vero. Non riesco a dimenticarti. Non sai cosa darei per averti ancora qui. Nessun altro sarà mai come te. Nessuno prenderà mai il tuo posto. Ancora sogno di poterti incontrare,di poterti abbracciare,di vederti di nuovo sorridere e salire sul palco assieme a coloro che per te erano come una famiglia. Eri consapevole della tua malattia,hai cercato di resisterle ma nonostante ciò non sei riuscito a combatterla perchè più grande di te. Ti ho sempre ammirato dolce Tom,per il tuo coraggio,il tuo talento,il tuo costante ottimismo e sappi che non smetterò mai di farlo.
Sarai sempre nel mio cuore.
A sickness with no remedy,except the ones inside of me / You ever wonder how deep you can sink into nothing at all? / Disintegrate / Annihilate me.'
For Tom Forever.💕
A year ago today the world lost one of the greatest musicians of all time. Tom, you were and will always remain one of my biggest idols and inspirations. Without the influence of the songs you wrote and crafted I wouldn't have finished my degree. You inspired me to write my play Memento Mori which received one of my highest grades at uni, and for that I will be forever grateful of your wonderful clever mind and beautifully written songs. To anyone that was lucky enough as myself to have ever met you then they would know how much of a caring and charismatic character you were. To the rest of @architects I am so proud of how you've all coped with the last year and how you continue to strive musically. You are all wonderful men and I'm grateful for everything you do for your fans 💖 Tom, the world misses you and your talent #fortomforever
Just avui, 20 d'Agost fa un any que ens vas deixar, i encara segueixo sense creurem-ho...
Vas ser la persona mes talentosa que ha tingut mai Architects com a músic i persona, des el primer moment que vaig descobrir aquest grup em vaig quedar alucinat, no nomes per com ereu com a grup, el primer en el que em vaig fixar va ser en tu, una calitat increíble fent tot el que feies, vas començar a ser un dels meus músics preferits en res, des aquell dia et vas convertir en una gran inspiració per mi, tant com a músic i persona, hem sento més que afortunat d'haverte pogut veure en directe amb tots els nois a Barcelona, va ser la millor nit de la meva vida sense cap dubte.
L'únic que em queda per dir es grácies, grácies per tota la inspiració i les ganes que em dones de seguir endevant amb el món de la música, grácies per tot el que has donat a aquesta família.
I grácies tambe a Architects, per tenir la valentía de seguir la seva carrera sense en Tom, sapiguent l'importáncia que tenia ell en tot això.
~Gone With The Wind~
R.I.P. Tom Searle
RIP Tom. Your music impacted on people more than you could ever know. It was hard for me just as a fan to say goodbye, I can't imagine how hard this has been on family and those closest.

One year on and there isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about Tom and how much I miss him.
I feel truly blessed to have as many memories of him as I do and even though sometimes it's painful it's worth it to see him smile in my head.
I still find myself wanting to share new albums with him and silly football rumours and to laugh at ridiculous videos together.
The times we spent together we're truly some of my favourite. Not only did you have the darkest sense of humour you had my favourite.
One person who I'm utterly lost for words at how proud I am is @danarchitects he has been there for so many of us throughout this and I want him to know just how much we all love him.
Every time we perform we do it for you Tom and we're eternally grateful for the lessons that you taught all of us.
I love you and miss you every day
For Tom Forever ♥️
1 year. We all love you and miss you. My thoughts are with @architects, Tom's friends & family 💖😇 It's crazy to think the last time I saw Tom on stage, that he was going through something so incredibly terrible. He played his heart out, as he always has, at every single show I've been too. The last time I saw him play was in his home town at a little venue that means a lot to Architects, and I was there to share that with him, with his brother, with the band and with their fans. When I met him he was so kind and humble, not even hesitating to stop and say hello and to talk about life with us. He was truly incredible, not just as a musician but as a human. I treasure that I got to see him perform his wonderful songs, ones that we now know have even greater meaning behind him. Architects are a band that have helped me through my most darkest time, and Tom was a huge part of that. Gone with the wind, but never gone from our minds. 🖤
exactly 1 year ago,
plus exaclty 1 month ago,
i lost some of the men i have looked up to. there are moments where i dont understand why life keeps throwing the worst things to the most amazing and kindhearted people. they deserved more than this. but let's remember these two and keep their legacy and let it shine on forever. they both deserve the world. dan, i am proud of you for being so strong. keep going on. ♡ #fortom#forchester#restinparadise
†† The very 1st #RaptorsOverDiamonds artwork by my incredibly talented amigo & Barcelona-based artist @jjclv ! Make sure to give him a follow! Funny thing is, by the time Juanjo started this amazing piece, I had absolutely no idea of how I wanted to shape the sound of R/D.. back in mid-2016. 🐊/💎††
Damn @architects were absolutely amazing yesterday. 🤘🏾 Saw them for the 5th time and they get better everytime!
I always get chills when they play Gone With The Wind and always leave the show in tears.. You're making Tom proud 🙌🏽🖤 @adamarchitects @aliarchitects @danarchitects @samarchitects @joshsylosis
psa: @neckdeepuk's new record is incredible! there is a song for everyone, so please check these bangers out. this song is one of my favorites & putting @samarchitects in it was genius 🤘🏻such an insane album, not a song that i dislike. support neck deep (and architects of course.) #neckdeep#thepeaceandthepanic#architectsuk#poppunk
пост, посвящённый моей безграничной любви к Architects. группе, которая изменила мои взгляды, а также познакомила меня с людьми, без которых я не представляю жизни. максимально жду возвращения этих ребят в Россию и очень люблю ✨
Aren't you tired of all of the violence inside of you? Just let go.
Gravity, hold on to me.
So come and wash us away.
Just thank fuck that we don't last forever.
It's just a matter of time before the wave breaks. So stand your ground.
The earth will shake.
