New Music and tour dates from Augustines
Althought their acclaimed debut album was released in 2011, singer/guitarist Billy McCarthy and multi-instrumentalist Eric Sanderson have been making music together since the formation of their band Pela in 2001. The dissolution of that band led to the start of Augustines.
With the duo now joined by drummer Rob Allen, the band’s deeply personal first album, Rise Ye Sunken Ships, resonated hugely with fans and critics alike. They embarked on extensive touring of UK and European dates and festivals, including Reading / Leeds, and Pukklepop.
June 2014 saw Augustines head back into the studio to record their 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.
