FUSE TV - Listen to American Authors' Reading and Leeds Festival Playlist

Last weekend, American Authors made their British festival debut playing both Reading and Leeds Festivals. The quartet brought their ubiquitous smash "Best Day of My Life" (a Top 15 hit both in America and across the pond) and more feel-good, pop-rock smashes (like banjo jam "Trouble") from their debut LP Oh, What a Life

Fuse caught up with the guys to hear about their incredible weekend.

"It was an amazing experience," bassist Dave Rublin reflects. "Being our first time playing festivals in the UK, the response of the fans was so electric and passionate ... It was a perfect day with perfect music at one of the best festivals in the world. It was a memory we will never forget."
