The Gothic Archies is the Gothic rock-bubblegum pop band of celebrated songwriter Stephin Merritt, also of The Magnetic Fields, The 6ths, and Future Bible Heroes. Merritt is the only member although he hopes to acquire more soon.

What makes this band different from The Magnetic Fields is that any glimmer of hope is absolutely extinguished.

- The New Despair - EP - (Merge, November 1997)

- The Tragic Treasury: Songs from A Series of Unfortunate Events - LP - (Nonesuch, October 2006)

The Tragic Treasury… is a collection of songs originally released as music for the audio book version of Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events”. There are thirteen songs corresponding to the 13 volumes in the series, plus two bonus tracks.
The Gothic Archies briefly toured to promote the album featuring Merritt on ukulele and Daniel Handler as Lemony Snicket on accordion.

The Gothic Archies have also produced music for the audio book of Neil Gaiman’s “Coraline”.
