The Archies is continuing the Archie tradition of crossing over with real life people, as they'll meet Scottish synth-pop band Chvrches in issues #2 and #3. The Archies, the band consiting of Archie, Betty, Veronica, Reggie, and Jughead, will be on tour when they come across Chvrches, who will will set them on the right path. The series' writers Alex Segura and Matthew Rosenberg opened up about including real bands in the series.

"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," said Segura. "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."

Chvrches will cameo in issue #2 and guest-star in #3, drawn by Joe Eisma.

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