Combining in-your-face concert footage along with rare interviews of the band, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT? documents the Archers of Loaf's 2011 reunion tour and captures the excitement and explosive energy of two hometown concerts played at Cat's Cradle in Chapel Hill, NC.

In director Gorman Bechard's book, Archers of Loaf were the greatest indie rock band of the '90s. "No one had more energy on stage. No one put out better records. And to be able to capture that power on film was a challenge and a thrill." Featuring twenty songs with concert audio, including such favorites such as Audiowhore and Web In Front, as well as rarities like "Bacteria" and "All Hail the Black Market." 

In between the songs,  all four band members on weigh in on subjects ranging from how exactly they came up with what is considered one of the worst band names of all time, to what's changed about life on the road since 1991, and how they actually miss their old van.
