Tras un tiempo tras su regreso como grupo, y preparar el tomate con una serie de teasers, finalmente Archers of Loaf están de vuelta con nueva música. 20 años después, el grupo lanza una nueva canción que, presumiblemente, aparecerá en su próximo elepé de estudio.

La nueva canción, titulada ‘Raleigh Days‘, presenta el músculo indie y los guitarrazos catedralicios característicos de la banda, además de algún buen navajazo melódico. Sobre la canción, Eric Bachmann ha comentado el origen de la canción con un comunicado que suena un poco a invent:

I built a birdhouse on the back of my van. The seeds of “Raleigh Days” were spit out of the circular opening on the front of this birdhouse by an angry cardinal. One day last summer, as we were barreling down the highway hell-bent for leather, this antagonistic little redbird stuck her head in through the back window and exclaimed, “Great songs often come out so easily that they practically write themselves. I tried to help you, but you idiots ruined it; and now you’re going to have to finish it all by yourselves!” Then, in a white-hot flash, we smashed head-on at 130 mph into an 18-wheeler carrying a herd of giant elk. It was all blood, fire, fur, and feathers snowing down through that old familiar smell of boiling oil and scorched earth. Fortunately—after I regained consciousness—I was able to make guitar picks from some shards of elk antler I found scattered around the accident site. It wasn’t planned per se, but it just kind of worked out that I used one of these picks to track my guitar part on “Raleigh Days,” and I think it sounds pretty good.
