Singer/guitarist Eric Bachmann, guitarist Eric Johnson, bassist Matt Gentling, and drummer Mark Price formed Archers of Loaf in Chapel Hill, NC, in 1991. Icky Mettle was the first of four studio albums for the band that seemed to personify what SPIN magazine deemed “a tremendously optimistic time in underground music, that 15-minute period in the early 1990s when it looked like indie rock really might take over the world.”
Archers of Loaf have announced new tour dates! In addition to reissuing the newly remastered versions of All the Nations Airports and White Trash Heroes in August, the band will play shows in Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago and Minneapolis. Also, What Did You Expect? the new concert documentary about Archers of Loaf will be screening at various festivals in the US and Canada.
On August 7, Merge will reissue All the Nations Airports and White Trash Heroes, the final two albums from Archers of Loaf.
