The first guest o appear in the pages of the coming ongoing The Archies will be Chvrches. Written by Alex Segura and Matt Rosenberg, with art by Joe Eisma, Matt Herms and Jack Morelli, The Archies #1 hits comic stores Oct. 4.  The new series sees The band from Riverdale hitting the road for a tour that will feature various artists. Chvrches will make their guest appearance in #2. That book hits shelves Nov. 8.

Co-writer Alex Segura said in a press release:

“Adding real bands in the mix gives the series a must-read twist and opens the door for Matt, Joe and I to get our favorite bands into Riverdale.” 

Matt Rosenberg added:

“We’re taking the Archies out of Riverdale and sending them on tour across the country to experience everything a touring band goes through. Taking them out of their elements is really key. That plays a lot into their roles in the band and who they are.”

As for the band choice Segura added:

“One of the first bands Matt and I thought of was Chvrches just because they’ve got such a modern, fun vibe and we’re both fans of the music.” 

The Archies #2 will feature front-woman Lauren Mayberry with instrumentalists Iain Cook and Martin Doherty:
