Crooked Fingers tour the US; Eric Bachmann’s beard slotted to open every show

Crooked Fingers tour the US; Eric Bachmann's beard slotted to open every show

As I look upon the encroaching fields of kudzu, I’m reminded of only one thing: Eric Bachmann’s beard. Try as you might, you cannot stop Bachmann’s beard from spreading across America. As the reunited Archers of Loaf have been touring consistently, those looking to relive the glory days of the 1990s have witnessed the glorious beard in action. But what of those who find favor with Bachmann’s more recent project, Crooked Fingers? Fear not: Crooked Fingers are going on tour as well. Bachmann’s beard shall prove more necessary than ever, as Crooked Fingers plan to tour the US through the frosty autumn months. You know what goes well with a good beard in the winter? I’ll tell you. A nice scarf.

Shortly before the Crooked Fingers tour truly kicks off, Bachmann will release Breaks in the Armor, his sixth album under the name, through Merge. If past Crooked Fingers albums are any indication, this one will be melancholic and lovely. Much like a good beard. Surely, you are familiar with a good beard’s tangle of melancholy.
