Formed in 2007, folk/roots-rock band American Babies is fronted by Brothers Past member, Tom Hamilton, and has since become more than just a side project for the Philadelphia-based singer. American Babies’ Knives and Teeth will be the third LP for the group and, according to Hamilton, is “a 40-minute existential meltdown.” Hamilton explains that he decided to “dig deeper” when writing this album, focusing more on meaningful issues rather than trivial matters like chasing girls.
Now, the band has premiered a new video for “Cold Blooded,” the first single from their forthcoming album Knives and Teeth. “Cold Blooded” is an explosive Americana-based rock song. The video features a series stop-motion style shots and multiple, mirrored images of Hamilton that show the singer performing every instrument as an exceptional one-man band.
Knives and Teeth is set for release on Oct. 15 via The Royal Potato Family. Watch the video for “Cold Blooded” in the player below.
