The Grammy-nominated Plain White T’s—composed of Tom Higgenson, Tim Lopez, Dave Trio, De’Mar Hamilton and Mike Retondo—kicked off their vibrant career in the Chicago suburbs in 1997, playing a unique blend of pop, punk, and melody-driven rock and roll in basements and clubs across the metro area. Nearly two decades later, the quintet has become a global success, with thousands of shows, a string of multi-platinum hit singles (“Rhythm of Love,” “1, 2, 3, 4”) and one of the most downloaded songs of all time under their belts: Grammy-nominated “Hey There Delilah.” The band’s latest album, American Nights, is their first independent release since 2001, and the collection focuses on everything fans have come to expect from the Plain White T’s – summery anthems, heart-on-the sleeve lyrics and acoustic love songs. The quintet first came to Fearless Records in early 2000, releasing their certified gold albums, All That We Needed, and later in conjunction with Hollywood Records, Every Second Counts, which propelled the band to superstardom and lead them to become one of the most praised bands in American rock. PWT have returned to Fearless Records for the next exciting chapter of their career with a brand-new single called “Land of the Living,”—the first taste of new music from the group since American Nights. “Fearless was the first label to ever support us and believe in the band, so it just seems so natural to reunite with them after all these years,” says vocalist and guitarist Tom Higgenson, “Land of the Living is a song that can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For us, it’s about following your passion no matter what, and enjoying the ups and downs along the way.”
