    Remains of Nothing - Band Of Skulls

Since their formation in Croydon, South London in 1994, Archive have operated as masters of their own destiny, eschewing prevailing trends for a more unique musical blend of their own.
Founding members Darius Keeler and Danny Griffiths, who had previously worked together in pioneering drum & bass outfit Genaside II, joined forces with South London rapper Rosko John, and Iranian-born singer Roya Arab for 1996’s trip-hop tinged and critically acclaimed debut album, Londinium.
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 sees 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, 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 in 2019.”
“It’s also been a great opportunity to collaborate with some new people, I think the track with Band Of Skulls (‘Remains Of Nothing’) is one of the best things we’ve ever done, and working with Steve Mason was a real honour too”, says Keeler.
