With their landmark self-titled debut album in 1999, American Football set the seminal standard for the emo post rock world to follow. They then split up pretty much on release, leaving a generation of fans yearning for more. Fast forward fifteen years, and the group reunited, now as a four piece with Nate Kinsella joining the fold playing huge shows to audience that have been waiting to see them for over a decade. Their first release since their reunion LP2 was widely praised by fans and critics alike, but the band members still felt like their best work was yet to come. “ LP3 “ just released in March 2019 is a body of work that is bold, contemplative, rich and as expressive as fans have come to cherish with American Football and marked them out as a band reformed that has truly augmented rather than tainted their musical legacy.
