THE AMERICANS – Release New Single “Born With A Broken Heart” | Second Full-Length Album “Stand True” Out May 6

The overall touchstone of the band’s forthcoming Stand True is devotion in the face of loss. And with that, the album’s sophomore single, “Born With A Broken Heart,” solidifies that concept as it showcases an edgier side to the band; a gravelly ode to the way romantically wounded people sometimes find one another. “Driving home from gigs, Zac would tune into a Navajo AM radio station out of Window Rock, AZ,” recalls Patrick. “Parts of the song came from some of that music. It feels like driving through Los Angeles at night.”

The Americans are composed of Patrick Ferris (vocals/guitar), Jake Faulkner (bassist) and Zac Sokolow (guitarist). Combined, they have a goal to deliver a moving collection that lands somewhere between Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp and Nathaniel Rateliff. UNCUT magazine recently agreed with that sentiment saying they’re “the sweet spot between Springsteen and The White Stripes.” (March 2022 issue)
