AUGUSTANA TO HIT THE ROAD THIS MAY

Augustana will hit the road this May for their first tour in support of their eagerly awaited self-titled third album for Epic Records due out on April 26th, 2011. The tour will kick off May 12th in Dallas, TX then cross the country before finishing in San Diego on June 17th.

The band, which is fronted by vocalist/lyricist Daniel Layus, recorded the album in Los Angeles with Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Jacquire King, who is known for his work with Kings of Leon and Norah Jones, among others. The album delivers on the emotionally resonant, rootsy pop/rock that Augustana have become known for since launching themselves onto the scene with their major-label debut, 2005’s All The Stars and Boulevards. The album reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. It also spawned two Top 40 hits, “Stars and Boulevards” and “Boston,” which was certified digital platinum. The band’s follow-up, 2008’s Can’t Love, Can’t Hurt spawned the singles “Sweet and Low,” and “I Still Ain’t Over You.”

The first single from the album, “Steal Your Heart,” is currently impacting radio and will be available the last week of March on iTunes.

Augustana is vocalist Dan Layus, guitarist Chris Sachtleben, bassist Jared Palomar and drummer Justin South.
