Indie Rock Band ‘American Authors’ to Play in Alumni Hall

Indie rock band American Authors will take the stage on Friday, May 2 in the HUB’s Alumni Hall.

The Boston-natives are best known for their single “Best Day of My Life,” which peaked at number eleven on the Billboard charts. They recently performed the hit on the Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards in March.

Since their formation in 2006, while studying at the Berklee College of Music, the band has signed with The Island Def Jam Music Group.

They released their self-titled EP last year, and their first full-length album, Oh, What a Life, in March 2014. Since the release, their singles “Believer” and “Best Day of My Life” have quickly climbed the charts.

The group has toured with bands such as Hellogoodbye and Every Time I Die. Their music has also been featured on the television hit The Vampire Diaries and in national commercials. The band is currently based out of New York City.

The SPA-sponsored event begins at 10 p.m. and is free to all students with a Penn State ID. Entrance is on a first come, first served basis.

Here’s the music video for the band’s most popular song, “Best Day of My Life”:
