  WE ARE AUGUSTINES ANNOUNCE RELEASE OF NEW SINGLE 'JUAREZ'
12th April 2012

we are augustines



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 be 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.

See We Are Augustines play the following UK shows in with rocking Seattle blues band My Goodness in support.

2nd May - Academy 3, Manchester (SOLD OUT)
3rd May - Dingwalls, London (SOLD OUT)
5th May - Live at Leeds Festival
6th May - Hare and Hounds, Birmingham
9th May - Academy 2, Liverpool
10th May - ABC 2, Glasgow
12th May - Psychosocial, Great Escape Festival, Brighton

7th July - T in the Park Festival, Kinross, Scotland
15th July - Latitude Festival, Southwold




WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
