American Football Reunite, Plan October Tour


The indie world has been buzzing for a minute now about the upcoming reissue of American Football’s sole LP (out May 20 via Polyvinyl), but now the lingering fans on one of the emo movement’s most beloved bands have an even better reason to celebrate: The band is getting back together.

This morning, American Football confirmed they are officially reuniting by revealing plans to begin performing live again in October 2014. Dates for the run have yet to be made public, but BrooklynVegan has confirmed a stop in NYC for October 11. We expect the full tour announcement to be made later today.

Rumors of an American Football reunion have swirled for years, but I am not sure anybody expected it to actually happen. You can stream a new/old song from the band below:

The song was among the very first we wrote (and uses another alternate tuning we only utilized once elsewhere: EBD#EBE). It also used to be our standard set closer until we wrote “Stay Home” and dropped it from the set. We briefly considered recording this for the album, but we ran out of time in the studio, and we weren’t sure that it really fit in with the other songs we had on the record.
