In our new interviews with Mike and Tim Kinsella, Mike broke the news that American Football likely have a third album on the way, which would follow last year's excellent LP2 and their 1999 debut. Mike said:
There’s always a new Owen record in the works. Just wandering around my house, I just pick up guitars and that’s sort of just always what I’m sort of working on passively. I think American Football is gonna actively start writing another record soon too.
Tim also mentioned that Joan of Arc recorded a new album last spring that they've been editing and mixing, and that he's got a new guitar-rock record coming out under the name Friend/Enemy, which was also the name of a side project he did in 2002. Stay tuned for more on all that.
Meanwhile, both American Football and Tim and Mike's early-'90s band Cap'n Jazz have shows at Brooklyn Steel on their respective tour schedules. Cap'n Jazz play there on September 23 with fellow '90s vets The Van Pelt (tickets), and American Football play there on November 19 with dream pop band Pure Bathing Culture (tickets).
Tickets are still available for both shows, and we're also giving away a pair to each Brooklyn show. For a chance to win tickets, either leave a comment at the bottom of this post saying which show you want to see, or TWEET:
