VIDEO: American Authors Shares 'Blind For Love' Music Video

Fans can look forward to more new music soon, as the band gears up to release a new album in early 2023.

Earlier this year alternative rock band American Authors pushed their limits with six different versions of their new single "Blind For Love". Today the band is excited to share a new music video for the track, shot by drummer Matt Sanchez and Bianca Magik, edited entirely using the Splice app.

Sanchez shares: "The 'Blind For Move' music video is a montage in real time of our experience together on the road this fall, rediscovering our roots. Music was always our first love and we couldn't think of a better way to show that. I used a Nikon Z FC series camera, and edited it all on the Splice App on my iPhone."

American Authors recently debuted their festive new holiday songs, "Christmas Karaoke" and "Sleigh Ride". These songs celebrate holiday traditions and with them, American Authors is doing their part to serve up a little extra joy this holiday season.

Fans can look forward to more new music soon, as the band gears up to release a new album in early 2023.

Since releasing their debut album Oh, What a Life in 2014, pop-rock outfit American Authors have experienced milestones most bands only dream about. They've watched their music climb to the top of the charts, and seen singles go multi-platinum. They've played awards shows, hit the stages of legendary venues all over the world, and toured the world with bands such as Andy Grammar, OAR, OneRepublic, The Revivalists, and The Fray.

Their anthemic hit single "Best Day of My Life" has been featured in over 600 movie trailers, TV shows, commercials, and as a theme song for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Despite these accolades, however, lead singer Zac Barnett vows that the best day of their lives is still yet to come. "We just want to keep going," he says. "We can't wait to continue this adventure."

Originally formed in 2006 at Berklee College of Music in Boston, American Authors - Zac Barnett [vocals/guitar], Dave Rublin [bass], and Matt Sanchez [drums] - eventually dropped out of college and moved to Brooklyn to continue refining their airtight songcraft.

Shortly after moving to Brooklyn, American Authors crossed paths with Shep Goodman while playing a gig in the city. Eventually signing with Goodman's production company Dirty Canvas, the band wrote and recorded "Believer" and quickly saw the track thrown into rotation on Sirius XM's Alt Nation radio. Their next song "Best Day of My Life" was featured in a commercial campaign for Lowes. Shortly after, American Authors inked a deal with Island Records.

By 2018, the guys had impressively generated over 1 billion global streams on a string of alternately striking and soaring smashes. Their inescapable and instantly recognizable breakthrough "Best Day of My Life" earned a triple-platinum certification from the RIAA and vaulted to #11 on the Billboard Hot 100, in addition to receiving countless film, television, video game, and sports syncs.

Their 2014 full-length debut, Oh, What A Life, achieved gold status, while the follow-up What We Live For spawned another Top 20 hit, "Go Big or Go Home," in 2016. Along the way, they sold out shows around the globe and ignited stages at festivals, including Lollapalooza, Firefly Music Festival, BottleRock Napa Valley, Reading Festival, and Leeds Festival, to name a few.

Hot off of their critically acclaimed third album Seasons (2019), the band wasted no time getting back in the studio to record the Counting Down EP, released during the 2020 pandemic. The condensed album is at once a sonic adventure, an introspective on overcoming self-doubt, and a surging contemplation of hope and opportunity.

2021 and 2022 brought forth notable single collaborations with Santana & Rob Thomas ("Move"), Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray ("Nice & Easy"), CVBZ ("This Time is Right"), Chad Tepper ("Timeless"), and Fedde le Grand ("One Way Up"), followed by unique cover renditions of songs by Olivia Rodrigo ("good 4 u") and Post Malone ("Circles").

"We've never been afraid to explore new musical genres but we always try to maintain a message of hope in our music," states Zac.

It all comes together to present a vision of the band that's at once recognizable and unfamiliar. For while Barnett does think some of the new songs "are even more in the genre of classic American Authors than a lot of other stuff we've done in recent history", he also sees this next chapter as opening a new door and leaving the past behind.

"Nothing ever came easy for us," Dave reveals. "We had this crazy dream and we had to do everything ourselves and keep working harder and harder every day to make those dreams a reality."
