Brooklyn’s American Authors – Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass), and Matt Sanchez (drums) will initiate a spring awakening of their own on May 13th with the release of WHAT WE LIVE FOR, their new album on Dirty Canvas/ Island Records, featuring the brand new single “Pride,” which was a most added track at Hot AC radio last week.

American Authors new video for “Pride” is already accumulating buzz. The video features young actress Sandra Mae Frank from Deaf West Theater, the company that made Broadway history with its innovative production of the 8-time Tony Award-winning and national sold out tour - Spring Awakening.

WHAT WE LIVE FOR is the long-awaited follow-up to Oh, What A Life, American Authors’ RIAA certified Gold debut album of 2014, which rose to #3 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart and #15 on Soundscan. In addition to “Best Day Of My Life,” a #1 Hot AC and Top 5 Pop hit, the album also spun off “Believer,” another Top 15 at Hot AC.

American Authors’ career-defining RIAA triple-platinum #1 hit “Best Day Of My Life” continues to resonate across the Top 40 nearly three years after its release. A sync favorite as confirmed by Billboard, “Best Day Of My Life” was “bolstered by prominent placements in a Lowe’s TV ad, a trailer for the film Delivery Man, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, a Major League Baseball Fan Cave commercial, the opening sequence of this year’s ESPN World Series Of Poker coverage, and can be heard currently in the new Weight Watchers campaign.
