WE ARE AUGUSTINES join The Outlaw Roadshow

Confirmed to Play!


What's Coming This Summer - Counting Crows are taking RSL's The Outlaw Roadshow on the road with them this Summer! That means amazing exposure opportunities for emerging talent and will provide the best live show possibilities for fans. You literally will see Counting Crows and the best supporting acts this country can offer. Fans should arrive early to these shows - every band was hand-selected. There are no throwaways.





"We handpicked every venue ourselves to get out of the cookie cutter places & into cooler outdoor gigs that WE wanted to play & we're pretty sure YOU are gonna dig," said Adam Duritz. "But the best part of all is that we're taking THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW on the road with us to bring all OUR favorite new bands to YOU. This summer COUNTING CROWS & RYAN'S SMASHING LIFE Present THE OUTLAW ROADSHOW!! On The Road and Everywhere You Are -- All Summer Long!!!"

The best part of being a music writer, sometimes, is that every now and again I get to help those bands celebrate their big days. It is with great pleasure that The Outlaw Roadshow confirms the addition of We Are Augustines. It's already been a whirlwind year of amazing international audiences for Billy McCarthy, Eric Sanderson and Rob Allen. (I felt so much pride when they played Letterman!) And, with an award-winning record and invitations to Coachella (US), Hurricane and Southside (Germany), Bonnaroo (US), Latitude (UK), Bilbao BBK (Spain), T in the Park (UK) this little trio could be one of the hottest acts on the planet right now.





I remember sharing Rise Ye Sunken Ships (best of 2011 - album review) with Adam and he was instantly mesmerized, as have countless others ever since. One of the most magical moments of my SxSW this year was this memory of seeing We Are Augustines, captured oh so brilliantly by Mr. Duritz in American Songwriter... I think there were 200 people in that room having religious experiences that night.
