by Saddle Creek

Saddle Creek has signed Eric Bachman. Bachman is well-known from his songwriting role in Archers of Loaf, and he stepped out on his own when that band disbanded in 1998. He previously released a record under the name Crooked Fingers, but the disc for Saddle Creek will be the first bearing his name.

The label will be releasing Bachman's new album, To The Races which promises "a more direct, spartan approach," on August 22nd.
