It’s cursed! Listen to a track below.
By Blurt Staff
After a 12 year hiatus, the Archers of Loaf reformed in 2011 to play some old songs for fans old and new, and to show off the chemistry and energy that exists to this day between these four friends who met back in 1990 in the small town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Brian Paulson, the band’s dear friend and producer / engineer of “All the Nations Airports” and “White Trash Heroes,” was on hand to capture the moment for two nights of performances at the infamous Cat’s Cradle. Documentarian, writer, and director Gorman Bechard and his crew captured this energy along with some choice interviews with the band members in his concert documentary entitled “What Did You Expect?”
Now, four years later, the Archers are making a limited edition vinyl pressing of that weekend entitled “Curse of the Loaf” available direct to their fans in mid-July through Port Merchandise. The double vinyl gatefold package consists of 180 gram black vinyl, a copy of the “What Did You Expect?” DVD, and a replica of the original concert poster designed by artist Paul Friedrich. Each of the 2500 packages is hand-numbered in gold foil for authenticity. A presale of the double LP will be made available during the first week of June.
