Brooklyn-based multi-platinum group American Authors, whose infectious breakthrough "Best Day Of My Life" became the lynchpin to over 1.7 billion combined global audio streams over their last two albums, have completed their long-awaited third studio album, Seasons, due out February 1, 2019, via Island Records.

The first single off the album, Deep Water released May 2018 has garnered over 16 million streams and has been featured in TV shows such as FOX’s 911 and ABC’s The Good Doctor Additional tracks include “Neighborhood,” “Stay Around” and the stomping gospel-infused Say Amen featuring Canadian singer-songwriter Billy Raffoul. The heavenly, hypnotic song’s corresponding visuals have curated over 8 million views and hit #3 on YouTube’s trending videos. Also included on the album is “I Wanna Go Out” which has been featured in a T-Mobile campaign and the Lego Ninjago movie promos.

American Authors – Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass), and Matt Sanchez (drums) – hail from the four corners of the U.S. but came together at Boston’s Berklee College of Music in 2006.  They soon left Berklee, moved into a small apart­ment in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, and started a band, releasing a series of indie EPs over the course of five years.  After lighting up SiriusXM Alt Nation radio with their debut #1 single Believer and attracting (what became) over 8 million YouTube views for the viral “Believer” video they created with their cell phones, they were signed to Island Records in 2012.  With the success of the inescapable and instantly recognizable “Best Day Of My Life,” their debut LP Oh, What A Life went Top 5 on the Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts, Top 15 on the Billboard 200, and was RIAA certified gold.  “Best Day Of My Life” was a 3x-platinum career-defining track that went on to reach #1 on Hot AC and Top 5 at Pop while receiving countless film, television, video game, and sports syncs.  Their second album, 2016’s What We Live For included “What We Live For,” “Grow,” and the sync friendly hit “Go Big or Go Home.”
