American Teeth (the 'sonic alter-ego' of Elijah Noll) will be releasing debut album We Should Be Having Fun later this month.

The record is due out on October 29 via Fearless Records, with new single Kickflip out now (hear it below).

Speaking about the song, American Teeth shares: "Kickflip gives me energy and also makes me want to cry. That is the energy I had when [producer] Colin [Brittain] and I were making the track.

"I was in a low, and I was looking for things to do to help me get out of the rut I was in post-break-up. I started skating every night around the park in my neighbourhood. I was determined to learn to skate, and everything was shut down due to the pandemic. Everything felt vacant. All of the basketball hoops were stripped of their nets so people wouldn't play.

"I felt so much frustration – like we were collectively being told we can't gather together and can't have fun. I felt like everyone was feeling this emptiness and decided to write Kickflip as a way to project a positive outcome despite being in a rough mental state. 'We're still messed up, but we're all okay.'

"I still haven't nailed a kickflip, but I'm trying."
