Augustines return with the release of their new album, This Is Your Life, via Caroline International, on 10th June. The group, fresh from a sold out Electric Ballroom headline show and dates with Noel Gallagher in Europe, will play selected festivals (including headlining at Dot to Dot) over the summer, and will later return to the UK for an October tour that includes their biggest headline show to date, at London’s Brixton Academy (18th Oct).
Listen to the new single from the album, When Things Fall Apart, (also released on 10th June) on Spotify and at Vevo.
Recorded in New York and Los Angeles with Joe Chiccarelli and long-time associate Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Frightened Rabbit), This Is Your Life is Augustines’ third LP. It follows 2014’s eponymous second album, the release of which was supported with expansive touring that culminated in a sold out headline date at London’s legendary Roundhouse (cap. 3300), a show that was filmed for use in an upcoming documentary about the band.
Augustines’ lead singer Billy McCarthy has also recently completed a solo European tour, Journals, Maps, Stories and Songs, a mixture of (as the title suggests) autobiographical stories and songs from this charismatic and captivating frontman that was rightly hailed “a jaw-dropping, knockabout oddyssey” [The Independent *****”].
Augustines return to the UK for a major headline tour this October. Pre-sale tickets for the tour go on sale on Wednesday 4th May from 9am (general sale starts at 9am on Friday 6th May). Sign up or pre-order the album at weareaugustines.com for priority access.
