We Are Augustines

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the success of the band’s sold out UK tour in May and the critically acclaimed album Rise Ye Sunken Ships, Brooklyn‘s We Are Augustines have announced that they will return for a full UK tour in October this year.

After speedily earning a reputation as a triumphant live act, We Are Augustines have scored highly coveted spots on the 2012 line-ups of Coachella, Bonnaroo, Hurricane and Southside, Latitude, Bilbao BBK Live, Reading and Leeds, and T in the Park.

Talking about the work that goes into their ever-growing live performances, bass player Eric Sanderson says: “It’s important to us that our shows are very celebratory and that the audience feels like they’re part of what we’re doing – that we’re all in this room together, creating a memory.

“We want people to have a cathartic experience – but still dance all night long, and walk away smiling.”

The tour dates are (all September and October 2012):

September
30 – Bristol Thekla

October
1 – London O2 Sheperd’s Bush Empire
3 – Manchester HMV Ritz
