Engine Room is back with another installment of our covers compilation series Guilt By Association. The Guilt By Association concept is easy, we ask artists to cover songs that one could call a guilty pleasure, but the catch is we all love these songs guilt free! Past volumes included tracks by Devendra Banhart, Will Oldham, Superchunk, My Brightest Diamond, Matt Pond PA, and Frightened Rabbit covering artists such as Mariah Carey, My Chemical Romance, Ace of Base and Destiny’s Child.
On Guilt By Association Volume 3 we’ve gone one step further and added a theme within this theme. For this newest installment all the songs had to be plucked from everyone’s favorite genre, 80’s hair metal! Vol. 3 features Helmet covering Loudness, Mike Viola tackling Ratt, Madison Square Gardeners doing Poison, Canon Logic taking on Cinderella and Bird of Youth covering Skid Row. It’s streaming and available for sale on our music/store page here. Please check it out and let us know what you think!
And we couldn’t of asked for a better album cover (below) for this newest edition, many thanks goes to the very talented Carolyn Wachnicki for the amazing design.
The Day is now upon us, Rapid Empire has been released unto the world! Lets see here — dynamic soundscapes, check — unrelenting energy, check — striking rhythms, check — rock solid vocals, check.

Today is the day, Flawed Logic is now available for sale on iTunes and everywhere digital music is sold. Or if you’re still on a high from Record Store Day and need a physical fix, then pick up the CD through our online store.
The press has been very kind so far; here’s what a few people are saying: My Old Kentucky Blog said “My first instinct, when I heard the captivating single Dance All Night off American Babies sophomore effort, Flawed Logic, as literally a visceral, full-body sigh of “aww, yeah…” This Buddy Holly-drenched two-stepper almost guarantees your legs will involuntarily begin line dancing under your desk.” And Glide Magazine gave it 4 out of 5 stars, and said “Hamilton’s penchant for producing a majestic elegance inside all his musical voices is second to none and on his new American Babies release, Flawed Logic, he further cements his reputation as major talent.” Then AOL Spinner is streaming Flawed Logic all this week and had this to say “Tom Hamilton invokes Ryan Adams and other alt-country troubadours with his band of babies.”
Please give it a listen for yourself, and then catch the band live all year when they will be touring throughout the US, including stops in Philly, Boston, NYC, Burlington and North Carolina. More shows are being added daily, but to see where they will be going so far look at the tour calendar on this page or go to AmericanBabies.net
