American Football is the third studio album by American rock band American Football, released in March 2019 via Polyvinyl Records.

American Football is an American rock band from Urbana, Illinois, United States, originally active from 1997 until 2000, and again from 2014. Despite the group's short initial lifespan, their self-titled debut album became one of the most acclaimed emo and math rock records of its era. American Football reunited in 2014 and have since released two more albums, American Football (2016) and American Football (2019).

American Football's original triumph, on their 1999 self-titled debut, was to reunite two shy siblings: emo and post-rock. It was a pioneering album where lyrical clarity was obscured and complicated by the stealth musical textures surrounding it. Like Slint's Spiderland, or Codeine's The White Birch, even Talk Talk's Laughing Stock, American Football asked far more questions than it cared to answer. But there wasn't a band around anymore to explain it, anyway.

The three young men who made the album; Mike Kinsella, Steve Holmes, and Steve Lamos; split up pretty much on its release. Fifteen years later, American Football reunited (now as a four-piece, with the addition of Nate Kinsella). They played far larger shows than in their original incarnation and recorded their long-anticipated second album, 2016's American Football (LP2). The release was widely praised, but the band members still felt like their best work was yet to come.

The band released the first single from the new album “Silhouettes” in December 2018 followed by a second single “Uncomfortably Numb” in January 2019 (a nod to Pink Floyd’s song Comfortably Numb), with guest vocals from Hayley Williams of Paramore.

The album was released to critical acclaim and reached #2 on the US Billboard Vinyl Albums chart.

This album is a limited indie record store edition on 180 gram light blue coloured vinyl with an 8 page booklet and download code, pressed in the US via Polyvinyl.
