American Football is excited to announce the forthcoming release of their third full-length album, American Football, out March 22nd. Listen to the lead single "Silhouettes" now. The band, whose songwriting has been so influential to a generation of musicians, raised the stakes on the writing and recording of their third effort. The band break new ground sonically, and explore new voices too, with guest vocals from Hayley Williams ofParamore, Land of Talk’s Elizabeth Powell, and Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell.
Enter LP3. ‘We put a lot of time and a lot of energy into it,’ says Mike. ‘We were all thoughtful about what we wanted to put out there. Last time, it was figuring out how to use all of our different arms. This time, we were like – Ok we have these arms, let’s use them.’ The band used the same producer, Jason Cupp, and recorded the album at the same studio (Arc Studios in Omaha, Nebraska) as its predecessor – yet they approached it in a markedly different way. As a result, LP3 is less obviously tethered to the band’s past than the second album. LP3 is contemplative, rich, expressive, yet with a queasy undercurrent. It is heavy with expectancy, revealing its ideas slowly, eliciting the hidden stories people carry around with them.
