Architects have officially been rejoined by bassist Alex “Ali Dino” Dean. He’ll be making his live return with the band during their upcoming Sonisphere Festival gig in the United Kingdom next weekend.
“I’m very happy to be able to say that I’m back,” says Dean. “Being able to stay at home for the past few months have given my family and I the opportunity to 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.”
He said things are now “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!”
