Pretty much every morning is filled with announcements from bands. A new record. A new single. A new tour.
Very rarely do we get all three from the best band in the world.
But that’s what we awoke to this morning, as New York trio Augustines have announced their third album and inevitable masterpiece, This is Your Life, set for a June 10 release. The news comes with a handful of European tour dates and a new single, “When Things Fall Apart”, which takes the band on a new electronic-pop journey without losing any of the indie-folk soul and sincerity that has cemented their legacy over the past few years.
Listen to the moving single below, and read the good word directly from the band themselves.
We are thrilled to announce our new album This is Your Life and the release date today. The band has never been more proud and we are simply over the moon about this new chapter in our lives. We thank you for making our shows electrifying, joyous experiences and we hope this album finds you well. It was written in various countries and includes collaborations with artists as far away as Senegal.
These indeed are the days of our lives. We live in an increasingly troubled world, and the album questions what this life right here and right now means as we move forward through uncertain times. We couldn’t do this without you all and we thank you for being along this journey with us. As always keep the faith, keep singing and we will see you very soon,
Bill, Eric and Rob.”
