Archive announce The False Foundation


Archive will release their 10th album The False Foundation on October 7.

The follow-up to last year’s Restriction will be promoted on the experimental outfit’s upcoming European tour, which starts in November.

Archive mainman Darius Keeler says: “I think just knowing that we were working on our 10th album made this one feel like a landmark record. Our history as a collective has been a mad journey, we’ve trodden such a strange path to arrive at where we are today, and I think in a way that informed the new record and emboldened us to make what is probably the Archive album that I’m most proud of to date.”

The group previewed the upcoming record with the release of their video for track Driving In Nails last month. It can be viewed below.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
