Archers of Loaf at Webster Hall (more by Chris Gersbeck)
Archers of Loaf

Archers of Loaf, still reunited, have a handful of dates scheduled in 2012 so far. The seminal 90s band has a pair of West Coast dates: LA and San Francisco (as part of Noise Pop), and two East Coast dates: Bowery Ballroom on April 26th and Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on April 29th that same week (date TBA shortly). Tickets for the NYC shows go on sale at noon on 2/3. The last time that Archers of Loaf played NYC it was over two nights at Webster Hall and Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Archers will also be at Primavera fest in Spain in May. More dates will be announced soon, as Merge is getting ready to release more remasters...

On February 21, Merge will re-issue Archers of Loaf's sophomore release Vee Vee on dbl-CD, limited edition mossy-green LP and digital download.

Re-mastered by Bob Weston and featuring new liner notes by Magnet Magazine editor Eric Miller, Vee Vee will include sixteen bonus tracks and new cover art re-imagined by graphic artist Jay Ryan. Reissues of All the Nation's Airports and White Trash Heroes will follow later in 2012.

.In related news, Eric Bachmann's other project Crooked Fingers will play LA a few days after the Archers of Loaf appearance, at the Hotel Cafe on Feb 29. The band was recently featured on NPR's World Cafe.

This is such a great reunion. Maybe they can play some more later material this time around?

"Best show of 2011."


One of the biggest idiots to make a best show of 2011 comment.

I always loved them musically, but the monotone singer sucks.

You were expecting people that were at these shows to have a pulse?

Wow, you guys seriously lack wit. They were incredible shows and Bachmann has a great voice.

35 year old nerds are STOKED

I am a 33 year old nerd and yes, I am STOKED.

I saw both shows last time they came through and the MHOW was by far the superior of the two. Webster's sound sucked that night (as it often can). Glad they'll be bringing it to Bowery Ballroom instead this time around.

Oh man, just realized I will be a 34 year old nerd by the time this show happens. SLIGHTLY LESS STOKED ABOUT THAT PART.

By the way, ATP (the NJ one) will probably take place in the fall, so I don't see how this news is impacting that announcement at all.

It's probably just the case of organizing 25-30 bands for the festival overall that's causing the delay. Which is certainly understandable.
