En concert le 30 et 31 octobre 2015 au Zénith de Paris

South London collective Archive announce details of their new album ‘Restriction’ and mammoth ‘Restriction 2015’ European tour.

The new album follows hot on the heals of the collective’s ‘Axiom’ film project released to critical acclaim earlier this year - ‘Axiom’ was selected for the Sundance Film festival in April 2014 and was performed live at a sell-out London Roundhouse show and the Montreux Jazz Festival.

New album ‘Restriction’ was produced by longtime collaborator Jerome Devoise and Archive, and will be released worldwide on the band's own Dangervisit Records via [PIAS] on 12th Jan 2015.
Speaking about the new album Archive co-founder Darius Keeler said “We set out to make an album with 12 individual and distinct songs, all coming from a similar place but at the same time musically diverse and unique.”
“One of the things I love about Archive is the way we’ve been able to change and evolve with each record and take our fans on a journey. ‘Restriction’ is the next leg of the journey and I can’t wait to share it with the people who matter most.”

First tasters of the ‘Restriction’ album come in the form of three singles, ‘Feel It’, ‘Black And Blue’ and ‘Kid Corner’ released simultaneously.
Talking about the reasoning behind releasing three single simultaneously Keeler says;
“Our aim was to make an album where each track was as strong as the one before it, and having done that we didn’t want to put the focus on to just one “single”. Ideally we’d release every track off the album individually, putting out three singles at once will give the fans a better picture of the full scope of the album.”
“Also, it’s a very un-Archive thing to do, which was obviously half the appeal!”

The band will be touring the UK and Europe throughout 2015 with the first leg of the tour kicking off in Amsterdam on Feb 20th, full tour dates below.
The ‘Restriction 2015’ tour promises to be the band’s biggest and most ambitious live production to date and will feature the screening of the Axiom film before the band’s live set each night.
Darius “The live setting has always been vital to Archive, we try to make each tour unique and special, I think we’ve set the bar high this time, I really can’t wait to get our there and take the new show to the fans!”
