Beloved indie/emo band American Football is returning next month with its first album in a whopping 17 years. 

American Football, the self-titled follow-up to the group's other (amazing) self-titled 1999 album, comes out on Oct. 21 through Polyvinyl/Wichita. Check out the first single, “I’ve Been So Lost for So Long”:

The band, comprised of Steve Holmes, Mike Kinsella, Nate Kinsella, and Steve Lamos, reunited in 2014 after more than a decade apart. They recorded the new album earlier this year in Omaha and Chicago.

01-28: New York, NY (Terminal 5)
