We Are Augustines May Tour Dates And Festivals 2012

Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album 'Rise Ye Sunken Ships', Brooklyn's We Are Augustines return to tour the UK alongside the release of brand new single 'Juarez' on May 21st via Oxcart Records. This epic track will be released on 7" vinyl and available to download with a previously unreleased cover version of the beautiful Los Lobos track 'Saint Behind The Glass' as the b-side.

Since navigating their way into the hearts and minds of the British public, We Are Augustines have found a second home here in the UK. Their collection of maritime tales, energetic, rocking live shows and phenomenal back story has certainly touched a nerve with those who are sailing with them.

New single 'Juarez', a stand out track on 'Rise Ye Sunken Ships', is a song written about the Mexican town that exists on the southern border of the United States. The vibrant community there has featured in poetry, songs and films over the years due to the huge amount of people passing through there on a daily basis. Since 2009, the level of escalating violence created by local drug wars has destroyed the area leaving more than 80,000 young people unemployed and over 100,000 lost jobs due to closed businesses. Recent headlines of the struggle attributed to Billy McCarthy composing this track from NYC. It was an opportunity for We Are Augustines to explore space and landscape in their music due to Billy's personal connection with the area. Examples of this can be found throughout his lyrics.

The band have announced a new live date in Liverpool this week and confirmed performances at the Great Escape in May, plus T in the Park and the Latitude Festival in July following their show at the Coachella Festival in the US this weekend.
