Merge Records will reissue all four Archers of Loaf studio albums, starting
with their acclaimed 1993 debut album Icky Mettle on August 2.
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.''
Re-mastered by Bob Weston and featuring new liner notes by Robert
Christgau, Icky Mettle will come with bonus material including the entire
Archers of Loaf vs. The Greatest of All Time EP as well as singles and
b-sides from the Icky Mettle era. Reissues of Vee Vee, All the Nation's
Airports and White Trash Heroes will follow next year.
Archers of Loaf kicked off their first tour since the fall of 1998 with a
sold-out show at the Grey Eagle in their home town of Asheville, NC.
A raucous set at the Sasquatch Festival over Memorial Day weekend
followed and was captured by NPR Music. The band will perform multiple
dates at smaller venues across the country in an effort to replicate the
more raw experience for which they are famous.
