You can listen to the new album now here.
Augustines will kick off a North American headline tour at Venue in Vancouver, BC on February 5, 2014. The six-week run will include shows at the historic Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA (February 11) and New York City's Bowery Ballroom (March 3).
The three musicians - Billy McCarthy (vocals, guitar), Eric Sanderson (bass, keyboards, vocals) and Rob Allen (drums, percussion) - recorded Augustines with co-producer Peter Katis (The National, Frightened Rabbit, Jónsi) at his Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT. Where their first record was created in relative isolation, Augustines was made "with the awareness that we weren't going to be alone anymore," says McCarthy. "This is us handing it over to those people that sang our songs back to us all over the world. We turned from the interior and started considering some of the breathtaking moments that happened to us on the road, in different countries."
