Various line-up changes over the years saw Keeler and Griffiths subsequently deciding to retire the idea of the “lead singer”, in favour of a more flexible collective approach moving forward.
12 studio albums in to their career, Archive have headlined festivals throughout Europe and grown to be one of the UK’s biggest live exports to the continent. 2019 saw the release of a career-spanning Retrospective collection “25” – marking the 25th anniversary of the collective’s formation.
Talking about the “25” project, Darius Keeler said, “It felt like the right moment to take a breath, to take stock of how far we’ve come. I’m really proud of the work we’ve done as a collective, and I’m excited to be celebrating that work with 25.”
