Deputy editor Dean Stattmann recently caught up with Brooklyn-based alt-rock band American Authors at their homecoming concert in New York City. Dean got a backstage pass to interview the boys behind the hit single "Best Day of My Life" thanks to our friends at AXE Hair, who not only styled the band for their November 7 concert at Best Buy Theater but also for the just released video for their new single, "Luck." AXE Hair Gels—Messy look, Spike-Up look, and Clean Cut look—provide a 24-hour hold without the mess, flakes, or crunch of your Pop's old-school gel. In this exclusive video, Dean chats with American Authors about their humble beginnings, creating their own sound, and how they avoid "going up three jeans sizes" while on tour.
