The Provincial Archive are a Canadian indie band. Their releases have spanned genres from indie folk[1] to alt rock.[2] Their music has been compared to R.E.M. and The Shins[3] and; early Weezer and Elliott Smith.[2]

The band released its debut album, Nameless Places, in 2009 locally in the band's hometown, Edmonton, Alberta.

Their second album, Maybe We Could Be Holy, followed in 2010. The band supported Maybe We Could Be Holy in part with a cross-Canada tour which included performances in the provincial archive buildings of eight of the ten Canadian provinces.[4]

The band's third album, It's All Shaken Wonder, was released in Germany in May 2014[5] and in North America on August 19, 2014[6] on the Black Box Music label. On June 10, 2014, a four song EP Hide Like A Secret was released via iTunes, along with a music video for the first track Daisy Garden.[6] It's All Shaken Wonder was awarded the Edmonton Music Prize on December 1, 2014.[7] All work up to and including this release was self-produced by the band, and the band's primary songwriter, Craig Schram. Following this release, the project was downsized to a trio with the departure of members Ryan Podlubny in 2014, and Nathan Burge in 2015. Podlubny was replaced by Stephen Tchir, a long-time musical collaborator with both Park and Schram .

The band's fourth, self-titled, effort will be release in November 2015.[2] The release was produced by Nik Kozub of the band Shout Out Out Out Out, and was recorded live-off-the-floor as a trio. The release has drawn early comparisons to 90s alt rock,[2] and represents a departure from the band's folk and pop influenced beginnings.
