Spotlight on the Daytrotter Barnstormer Tour: We Are Augustines

The Spotlight

It’s day four of the Barnstormer Tour Spotlight, and we’re highlighting the Brooklyn-based trio We Are Augustines.

“Chapel Song” opens with a foot-stomping rhythm, thick guitar licks (both of which don’t let up until the song’s finale), and Billy McCarthy‘s brazen vocals pummeling right along as he recounts that desperately tragic moment of watching your loved one walk down the aisle with another man. Emotions are high on this track, but not the sappy, roll-your-eyes kind; rather, the unbridled energy that inspires decades of lovers to raise their voice and reclaim those they’ve lost. We Are Augustines are not the band to “hold their peace” – even their name is a proclamation – and by rights they shouldn’t. Their debut album, Rise Ye Sunken Ships, dropped this Tuesday, a reason most would stand up and shout at the top of their lungs.

Grab the song below, and then do yourself a favor and buy tickets to see them live during the Barnstormer Tour. A recorded song holds only so much intensity, and, thankfully, “Chapel Song” only hints at what We Are Augustines brings to the stage.
