|Augustana have been working on new music and have signed to a yet to be announced label to release their future album. Until then, the band has released a demo called "Alive" that you can stream and download on their site.|
Hey guys, it's Daniel.
I just wanted to reach out to you all and fill you in on what we've been doing... I know I don't get online to say hey very often, I'm gonna do my best to try to check in more often from here on out...
If you've been to any of the shows in recent years, you're probably aware that I've been writing and playing quite a bit of new material... most of which will end up on a new Augustana record in the near future... as well as some songs you all haven't heard yet. We've recently signed a new record deal to ensure that new Augustana music will be released and details on all that will be announced shortly.
As far as touring is concerned, there aren't any official dates as of yet, but keep an eye out for sporadic shows between now and 2014. However, I anticipate plenty of touring next year in most American cities and eventually we hope to finally make our way out to the U.K. and Europe. Nobody is more excited than me to get out there and play 3 records worth of material you've never seen in a live setting as well as the new album.
Mainly though, I just wanted to step out and personally say thank you to everyone who's been so supportive over the past decade of Augustana, as well as those who've been so understanding and patient through all the changes in the last 2-3 years... You all mean so much to us and words could not possibly express how much your support and encouragement through thick and thin has done for us. I hope and plan to be seeing you all at many shows for another decade and the decade after that, and I couldn't be more excited for everyone to hear new music.
I'll check back in very soon... Have a great week and thank you so much.
