The American indie rockers released the critically acclaimed album This Is Your Life in June. Fresh from playing with Noel Gallagher across Europe and from their own headline show at London’s Brixton Academy.
Recorded in New Orleans and Los Angeles with long-time associate Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Frightened Rabbit), This Is Your Life, the group’s third LP, 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.
Ahead of the album’s release and the band’s recent shows, Augustines’ lead singer Billy McCarthy has also just completed a solo European tour, Journals, Maps, Stories and Songs, a mixture of (as its title suggests) autobiographical stories and songs from this charismatic and captivating frontman that was rightly hailed, ‘a jaw-dropping, knockabout odyssey.’
