(regarding the recent American Football reunion shows) Holmes said, "Obviously, we knew the time was ripe for three middle aged dudes to play some old songs about teenage feelings, and stand around tuning guitars for a long time."
They also just released a video for Never Meant...15 years late.
Like other bands in the mid-late 90s/early aughts (Hum, The Anniversary, Sunny Day Real Estate etc) these guys made amazing music and moved to other ventures as quickly as they came in.
PLEASE pick up this record. It'll make your day/year/life.
