Augustines, formerly known as We Are Augustines, have released a new single entitled “Cruel City“. This anthemic new track is the first we’ve heard from the trio since their 2011 debut, Rise Ye Sunken Ships. Since then, they have relocated from Brooklyn to Seattle and changed up their name a bit. This transition period seems to translate onto their new single, which maintains their signature sound, but bears traces of influence from the Pacific-Northwest rock scene with an African-rhythm backbone. “Cruel City” will be featured on Augustine‘s upcoming self-titled album, which will be released in early 2014.
