Comeback kings American Football have shared "Give Me The Gun", another new taste of their long-awaited second album.

We've already heard "I've Been So Lost For So Long", which arrived when the foursome announced their new record last month.

“Most [American Football] songs are built from Mike [Kinsella] and Steve [Holmes]’s interlocking guitar parts,” says drummer Steve Lamos to NPR. “This one, though, begins with a drum/bass figure and evolves from there. I love how Mike’s vocals use space and phrasing to complement the odd time stuff going on underneath - and I love even more how the vocal melody echoes through the guitar line in the bridge.”

The self-titled LP - 17 years after their debut - is out 21 October via Wichita.

Hear "Give Me The Gun" below.
