With the critically acclaimed album ‘Anytown Graffiti’ under their belts, and a nine city sell out tour in the US with their previous outfit Pela, apparent newcomers Billy McCarthy and Eric Sanderson are actually no strangers to this industry. Pela shared the stage with the likes of Flaming Lips, The National and Sonic Youth before their split in 2009, but now, out of the ashes of Pela, Billy and Eric are back as We Are Augustines.
One of the most outstanding albums you will hear this year, Rise Ye Sunken Ships, produced with Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene), will have it’s long awaited release this June following a limited edition, 7” vinyl of album opener ‘Chapel Song’ in April. The mp3 is free to download from their website http://www.weareaugustines.com now and will be made into a limited edition vinyl, available through the website and on their forthcoming tours only.

We need your help
Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.
You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
