Augustines - Cruel City

THE BACK STORY - For the last two years, the music made by We Are Augustines has proved to be amongst the most charismatic and dominant sounds coming out of indie rock. In 2011, Eric Sanderson and Billy McCarthy (formerly of Pela) formed the band. They soon after added skilled British drummer Rob Allen. In 2011, We Are Augustines released their debut album and it was the record of the year. The story of their sudden rise to the top is told here.

A NAME CHANGE - Most of the public were unaware, but just prior to the release of "Rise Ye Sunken Ships," the band were called Augustines. But when upstart artists come against established acts with the same name (no matter their size, quality or prominence) the established act and their attorneys generally win. So "We Are Augustines" were born. Short story long, the band can have their name back. And with the name change for Augustines comes the news that a new album is in the wings (soon to be shared with the world). This is the first single. And if it's any signal of what is to come, we have much to look forward to!
