American Authors have hit #1 on the Adult Top 40.
"Best Day of My Life" lifts 2-1 on Adult Top 40. First released on the Brooklyn band's self-titled EP, which topped Heatseekers Albums for two weeks in January/February, the song doubles as the lead track from its debut full-length "Oh, What a Life," due on next week's Billboard 200. The song (up 23-21 on the Hot 100) is a band's first career-opening single to rule Adult Top 40 since the Lumineers' "Ho Hey," which led for eight weeks and became the format's top title of 2013.

John Roderick was recently interviewed on the CMD+Space podcast, and he brought up some intereting thoughts on the internet, bands, marketing your music, and how having more of everything has led to us being statisfied with worse. I found the podcast from Marco's blog, and he pulled out some interesting quotes:
I hate to sound curmudgeonly, but Ö what is inevitable is that the mean quality of everything is declining. In the early í70s, it was very expensive to make a record, and you had to be really good at it to even get into the studio to give it a shot. The record companies were very selective, and the music that made it all the way out to the marketplace was astonishingly good....

Every year I try to convince Midtown. In my perfect world this yearís headliners would have been Fall Out Boy and Midtown. Iím going to get them Ė I think it will be next year or 2015. Every year I go after them first and then Jay-Z, and as soon as they say no I know that itís a normal year. Midtown know when the right time will be. It has to be a mutual thing.

Recently on The Gunz Show, Gunz spoke with The Story So Far about the decision of choosing their first single, and more.
"Itís kind of funny releasing a single when you have 11 songs on an album because everyone is trying to make guesses on what the album is going to be like. That song is cool, but I think the album is so packed, in my opinion thereís at least five other songs that top that one. I think we could have released any song off the album and it couldnít have gone wrong, itís such a seamless album. Weíre kind of branching out from the simplicity of the last album a bit. The sound, the quality, and what we put into it is just very crisp and on point. I think we...
