Midwestern emo pioneers American Football have been going strong for over two decades. Following the release of their third self-titled album in 2019 and the departure of founding member and drummer/trumpeter Steve Lamos, today (Dec. 9) the band shares the new single “Rare Symmetry” as well as a cover of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You.”
The two singles represent the final recordings with Lamos prior to his departure. “Rare Symmetry” is a hopeful, vibrant track with glockenspiel sprinkled in by Cory Bracken. The band also turned the beloved Mazzy Star hit “Fade Into You” into a hypnotic seven minute-long experience, featuring guest vocals by Miya Folick. Both singles will appear on a 10” vinyl release from Polyvinyl Record Co., out June 10.
