Bassist Alex “Ali Dino” Dean has rejoined Architects, and will make his live appearance at Sonisphere UK next weekend.

“I’m very happy to be able to say that I’m back!” Dean comments. “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.”
