Augustines come thundering out of the traps with a real fiery banger of a track in 'Are We Alive', their forthcoming single to be released on April 1.
This is the first taste from the New York-based alt-rockers' third full-length which will follow later this year, and shows the trio - guitarist Billy McCarthy, multi-instrumentalist Eric Sanderson and drummer Rob Allen - have lost none of their passion in delivering honest-to-goodness high calibre songs.
The band released their debut album, 'Rise Ye Sunken Ships', in 2011, followed by their self-titled sophomore in 2014.
Augustines have also announced they will be joining Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds on tour in Europe in April, before heading to the UK for two headline shows, at London's Electric Ballroom on April 19, and Academy 2, Manchester the following night.
