(August 7th, 2013 – New York, NY) Brooklyn’s American Authors are proud to announce the exclusive premiere of their cover of Lorde’s “Royals” today on Buzznet.
American Authors are currently ON FIRE.

Most recently, the band played to a pack house at Chicago’s Lollapalooza officially kicking off their August touring plans. The band will open a series of East Coast shows for fellow Island Records group the Mowgli’s, August 6th through August 13th, followed by a performance at Detroit’s MoPop Music & Arts Festival.
And this is all before releasing their debut EP, which comes out on August 27th!

SiriusXM Alt Nation’s tastemaker DJs and diehard listeners wholeheartedly embraced “Believer” and sent the song to channel 36’s tough-as-nails “Alt 18 Countdown.” A huge spike in social media and music sales followed, and an enthusiastic army of “Believers” was born.
American Authors – Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass), and Matt Sanchez (drums) – hail from the four corners of the country, but first met as students at Berklee College of Music. They soon dropped out, moved into a small apartment in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, and started a band.
Meanwhile, producers Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta saw the band perform early on and signed them to their production company, Dirty Canvas. Each member of American Authors brings his own influences and experiences to the table, creating expansive pop-flavored rock, sprinkled with four-part harmonies, spirited lyrics, and contagious optimism. “We’re the authors of our lives,” said Barnett, “creating music from what we’ve lived, from what we hope for, from what we feel. Every day is different and like everyone, our emotions change according to our personal highs and lows and by the challenges or triumphs that affect all of us. We’re not afraid to be goofy one day and serious the next. We just want to be true to ourselves and share our stories for as long as people are willing to listen.”
