American Babies are on tour to support their new studio albumKnives & Teeth. They stop at Club Cafe in Pittsburgh, PA on Wednesday, October 23rd for a headline performance.
At some point in every man’s life, he looks in the mirror and is surprised by what he sees. For Tom Hamilton that day is today and the questions are being asked on Knives & Teeth, the powerful new album he’s recorded with his band, American Babies. The 10 songs on the album range from uplifting to heartbreaking as Hamilton considers the secrets of childhood, the impending doubts of adulthood and the weight of strained friendships, all set to a soundtrack with the brashness of The Replacements, the sonic intensity of David Bowie and the acoustic majesty of Led Zeppelin. When asked to describe his new record, Knives & Teeth, Hamilton’s answer is short and compact but, like his lyrics, is loaded with deeper meaning: “It’s a 40-minute existential breakdown.”
Hamilton is best known as one of the founding members of the highly successful electro-rock band, Brothers Past, an endeavor that infused the song structures of The Grateful Dead into the experimental music of Aphex Twin and Squarepusher (a sort of “Pink Floyd with laptops,” as Hamilton calls it). When the strictures of band life became creatively stifling, Hamilton decided in 2007 to form American Babies.
