Harvested from the most significant American musical movements and rooted in truly good songwriting, the distinct Boulder based rock group, Augustus has been turning heads since its inception. Formed in late 2013, Augustus released their debut EP, ‘The Common Collapse’ to critical acclaim and has been building a steady following in Colorado due to their extensive gigging and captivating live shows.
In August 2015, the band released their second EP, 'Into Frames' which was called “Colorado’s strongest psych-rock/mashup album of 2015” by Colorado Music Buzz and debuted on over 50 college radio stations across the US and Canada. Their hit song ‘Return’ was ranked #9 on the Troubadour’s Road top 25 songs of 2015 and the album has been licensed for use by MTV, E! Channel and the Discovery channel.
The band kicked off 2016 with high profile festival appearances in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins, and has begun playing festivals in surrounding states. Released in October 2016, Augustus' 3rd album, 'The Mercury EP' marks a turning point for the band. Marquee Magazine said "It’s the perfect example of the group’s ability to take their multi-faceted sound and put forth something that no longer sounds like a blending of styles, but rather a succinct, continuous sound of their own." The album has again been licensed by major networks including AE, MTV, and the Discovery channel, was included in the Appetizer Radio show’s best albums of 2016.
Augustus recently signed with Rocky Mountain Artist group, has been tapped to play the Boulder Theater, toured the Pacific Northwest, and played SXSW during their recent southwest tour. The band has officially transformed into a 4 piece rock n roll outfit and is slated for festival spots through the summer of 2017.
