Archers of Loaf

First came word that Archers of Loaf had reunited. Then came word that they were on board for Sasquatch 2011. Now it's confirmed that Archers of Loaf will play dates from coast to coast this summer including two in NYC: June 25 at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and June 26th at Webster Hall! Both NYC shows go on sale Friday at noon. Baby Stew also points out that there will be a presale some time this week.

Archers of Loaf played their first reunion show in January of this year in their native North Carolina (audio recording of their full set exists). Videos from that show and all tour dates below...

Didn't Beavis and Butt-head make fun of one of their videos back then?

My first show ever too, when they opened for Weezer at Roseland. Good times.

Posted by Anonymous | April 11, 2011 4:54 PM

^ I saw them open for Weezer at the Odean in Denver! Weezer walked off stage and Archers totally killed it.

wow i must be getting old! have honestly never heard of 90% of the bands BV has covered this past week.

Posted by Anonymous | April 11, 2011 4:59 PM

You must be REALLY old, since Archers of Loaf is a 90s band.

Posted by Anonymous | April 11, 2011 5:08 PM

459-they're essentially all just one very bad band

Posted by Anonymous | April 11, 2011 5:16 PM

Or it's possible this band must've slipped through the radar on that guy's list. Just a thought.

ILL!! God, June is looking GREAT! GBV, Dino Jr. and Archers of Loaf? So glad the 90's are coming back to rescue us from shit music! If Soundgarden plays this year this will be the best (and brokest) summer ever!

5:21, if you are old enough to love all of those bands you should have a real job with an income. Stop slackin'

I heard Chris Cornell is playing from Soundgarden and charging $125 a ticket? Is he smoking two crack pipes? Seriously.

Posted by The Real Real Yup. PERIOD | April 11, 2011 5:42 PM

Good for them. Make some bucks. Hope the bass player has still got those mooooooooves.

It's a little-known fact that scruffy secondhand anthem "Web in Front" is actually about social networking. This band was PRESCIENT, young people!

Posted by steve stevenson | April 11, 2011 8:43 PM

so is that dude on the right like a heroin addict or just really skinny?

Posted by Anonymous | April 11, 2011 9:39 PM

He is the guy on the right.

Posted by Sasha | April 12, 2011 2:23 AM

7:44 - please come out to any Archers show wearing a t-shirt that says "7:44" and I am sure someone in your hometown will punch you square in the face. And then you will hear a great concert. It's a win win.

"so is that dude on the right like a heroin addict or just really skinny?"

actually quite the opposite... very in shape..
that picture is from the late 90's and this is from a few months ago

It's fitting that Archers of the Loaf of 90s will be playing at Music Hall of Williamsburg of Anaheim

Hahaha!

I liked them in the day, but they're definitely not one of the bands that has endured in my consciousness. Probably because their lead singer is so unbearably monotone.

Posted by Anonymous | April 12, 2011 10:28 AM

But what about Crooked Fingers!?!?!

Posted by Anonymous | April 12, 2011 10:49 AM

Crooked Fingers have a new album already recorded, it should be out later in the year apparently.

Stoked! Hometown band. Still listen to these guys regularly.

Archers. One of the best live acts I have ever seen. I too still listen to them on a regular basis. Very original and extremely fun!

Bachman writes great lyrics. Always loved Archers... will def try to catch one of these shows. Actually was wondering recently if they would play some shows again. When I saw Crooked Fingers at Northsix, Bachman opened the show with one of my favorite Archers songs.

awesome comments. was my first show ever as well. 1995, w/ Smoking Popes and Weezer. best crowd surfing I ever did, too.

Posted by scott pfledderer | April 13, 2011 3:10 PM

Yeah, wouldn't it cost them more to go and come back, go and come back, for several weeks than to just go and be out for awhile?

Anyway, I am really going to see how much this costs. I only got to see them once, back on their final tour, at Austin's late, great Electric Lounge. And it was amazing. At the Drive In was one of their opening acts and they were really good too, actually.
