    Archive is a trip-hop group from the UK. Darius Keeler & Danny Griffiths formed Archive in 1994, together with female singer Roya Arab & young rapper Rosko John. Due to some dispute among themselves, the band broke up in 1996.
    In 1999, Darius & Danny reformed Archive along with Susanne Wooder & Matheu Martin to produce their second album Take My Head. After Take My Head, the lineup of the band changed again, including now singer Craig Walker (former frontman for Power of Dreams). In 2002, they produced their third album You All Look The Same To Me, a more rock-oriented disc than electronic or pop. Two years later, Noise & Unplugged are the follow-ups to You All Look The Same To Me & they are keeping the same musical formation as before. in 2003, the band composed the soundtrack to the French film Michel Vaillant.

    Archive began their Europe tour in November 2004 without Walker & without notifying ticket holders. Increasing shouts of "Where's Craig?" from bemused fans at the concerts in Poland & France finally prompted a notice on the website that Craig absence was "due to unforeseen circumstances". Another statement from Darius Keeler hinted at personal problems keeping Walker from touring. In an interview with the TV station Arte in late 2005, Keeler & Griffiths stated that Walker is in fact no longer with Archive & is working on a solo album, whereas Walker has stated that he left Archive due to personal differences with management & other band members.

    In autumn of 2004, Archive announced that Dave Pen (Birdpen) would replace Walker on the Noise tour, due to the continuing personal problems between Walker & the rest of the band. During this same tour, Keeler & Griffiths met singer Pollard Berrier at one of their shows in Vienna, Austria. The three began writing & rehearsing together & were recording in Southside Studios, London by September 2005.

    Finally, in 2006, they released Lights, including most of the previous line up (with Darius Keeler, Danny Griffiths, Maria Q, who was a chorist on Take My Head, Dave Penney, singer on "Y.A.L.T.S." & "Noise" & Pollard Berrier).
