In between touring the world on a successful reunion and puzzling thousands of people with their insane guitar tuning charts, American Football has been taking a very exciting step: writing new material.

“We have written a couple new songs and we have plans to think about writing some more songs,” guitarist Steve Holmes said to NME at the 2015 Reading Festival. “If the songs we write are good, there could be a new album in the pipeline.”

The band has been playing an unidentified song at many of their reunion dates, though it has not been made clear if this is an actual new song or something unearthed from their old ’90s practice tapes. You can hear it below:

American Football has one more show on the docket for 2015, November 7 at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas. Beyond that, who knows: Maybe we’ll get a follow-up to 1999’s American Football in 2016? Fingers crossed!
