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.
