Interview: Archives (Video/Audio)

Northern Irish metal outfit Archives released their brand-new album, ‘No Bliss in Ignorance’ on June 7th, 2024.

Hailing from Northern Ireland and formed in 2020, the hefty quintet have worked diligently to achieve their aim of producing fierce music, laced with boundless energy and memorable hooks which has landed them a wealth of national radio and press support plus a recent sold-out opening slot with Skindred & a main support slot at Techfest Techabiliation 2023 alongside Hacktivist & Martyr Defiled.

New tour dates will commence in Bristol on 20th June before the band stop of in Luton, Norwich, Birmingham, Coalville, Newport, London and Dublin, concluding in Galway on 13th July.

When you look at the trajectory of Archives, it’s fair to say that they’re on an upward curve. Which is all the more impressive when you take into account that they only formed in 2020. That’s four years to get to this point, and based off what we’re hearing on No Bliss in Ignorance, there is no ceiling on this band.

You might have expected something great from Archives, but this great? They have smashed it out of the park here.

Check out our full review here.

We spoke to the Archives about the new release, the journey to this point, and what it means to get this record out. We also spoke about the upcoming tour, talked social media, happy places, weapon choice in a zombie apocalypse, gameshows they would love to appear on, and much more.
