ARCHIVES - Share Crushing New Single Video "Self Inflicted"

ARCHIVES make a highly anticipated return with the release of their blistering new single ‘Self Inflicted’. The Northern Irish band that formed in 2020 have dropped the follow up to their debut album ‘Decay’ in huge fashion. ‘Self Inflicted’ is a monstrous release which hit’s hard to devastating effect with ARCHIVE assembling a sound that is monolithic, but also incredibly captivating at the same time.

The band continue to live their life on the line by holding a core message behind everything they do. Pushing mental health awareness is close to their hearts and in many of ARCHIVES themes it plays a massive part as the band keep it at the forefront of their every purpose.

“Self Inflicted is an internal debate rhyming off all of the cons of a toxic friendship that will cease to serve you and only break you down. It hurts to cut a piece of you off but sometimes it is necessary to survive. They have finally got caught in their web of lies. You think you can spin your treacherous web of lies and never get caught in it. The key message of self inflicted is sometimes you have to cross your bridges and burn them behind you so you can never go back even if you get burned yourself slightly in the process. Pain is growth.” – vocalist Adam Holland.

Having premiered on BBC Radio 1 by Alyx Holcombe and been supported by Gemma Bradley of BBC Music Introducing’s Across The Line, ‘Self Inflicted’ is already proving why ARCHIVES are a band for the here and now. They are continuing the rightful momentum they gained from the debut album ‘Decay’ which was supported by Alex Baker of Kerrang! Radio and Kerrang! Magazine. The burly quintet has worked diligently to achieve their aim of producing stout and fierce music, laced with boundless energy and memorable hooks. They have done exactly that with ‘Self Inflicted’. With a huge 2023 in store the ARCHIVES are setting course to be one of the most exciting heavy bands around.
