Bio: American Football

Polyvinyl Records and American Football’s May 20th, 2014 reissue of the Chicago/Urbana, IL trio’s seminal self-titled 1999 release debuted at #68 on the Billboard 200 charts. An amazing feat for an album that never went out of print and has remained one of Polyvinyl’s most consistent sellers.

This fall the band will reunite for their first live shows since disbanding 15 years ago, playing The Pygmalion Festival in Champaign/Urbana, IL, three sold-out (in under 24 hours) shows at Webster Hall in New York City, and recently announced and soon to be sold-out shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco this December. Though the trio — Mike Kinsella (Cap’n Jazz, Owen, Owls), Steve Lamos, and Steve

Holmes — only played a few shows and released just one other record (a three-song EP that preceded this full-length), their influence and legacy has steadily continued to grow in the time after they disbanded. From its now iconic artwork to the band’s unique songwriting approach (highlighted by an emphasis on shifting time signatures and sincere lyrics), American Football proves a record doesn’t become a true classic through flashiness or catering to trends, but rather the deep emotional connection it forges between the music and the listener. Available on 2xLP, 2xCD, cassette tape, and digital formats, the American Football (Deluxe Edition) reissue features an assortment of rare live recordings, demos, and practice sessions (in which the group rehearsed material they never recorded elsewhere).
