American Authors’ New Album “What We Live For” Hits Stores Tomorrow

American-Authors-What-We-Live-For-2016-2480x2480The time has finally come for American Authors’ new album!

The record titled What We Live For will be released tomorrow, July 1st on Dirty Canvas/Island Records. The new album features the summer hit and title track “What We Live For.”

American Authors most recently played the Vans Warped Tour in Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston, immediately following their sold out Spring headline run.

The band’s influential video for “What We Live For” is a sobering, thought-provoking commentary on the state of gun violence in the US. In a statement to Billboard, the band writes:

In January of 2016 we came up with a concept for a music video that worked perfectly with our song “What We Live For.” We wanted to show you a powerful memory between two people whose love for each other, abruptly came to an end due to gun violence. In March 2016, we filmed it.

Everyone has so much to live for, including the 1000s of victims that die from gun violence in our country every year. We must ask ourselves, why do we keep allowing this to happen? How do these violent people get these weapons of mass destruction? And, what can we do to stop them?

We here at American Authors believe in strengthening our gun laws, and we feel that coming together to find a solution to these everyday atrocities is more important than any constitution or amendment, because finding happiness and living our lives as long as we can, is our inherent right as people.

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 to date the band has over 500+ million streams and 300+ million YouTube views.
