New support from across the pond…


Brooklyn based Indie Rock group, We Are Augustines, are proud to support BORG and the campaign to save the Bradford Odeon.

We Are Augustines is an American indie rock group based in Brooklyn, New York and consisting of guitarist Billy McCarthy, bassist Eric Sanderson and drummer Rob Allen.

Following the break-up of their former band Pela, McCarthy and Sanderson decided to continue producing the songs that were originally supposed to comprise Pela’s second studio album. The album, titled Rise Ye Sunken Ships, was released digitally on June 6, 2011.

The band derived its name from the month of August. Both McCarthy and Sanderson were born in August, as was McCarthy’s brother, James. James’ story is one of the major influences behind their first album. Pela also dissolved very quickly (“In the span of two weeks”) in August 2009. Originally, the new band was named Augustines. Due to other bands with the same name, they changed the name to We Are Augustines.

Thanks for your support guys, great to have you on board!

    Surely with all these acts showing an interest the ear-ringed one in City Hall may see the true potential of this place. True, Leeds have got The Boss but Rome was not built in a day…nor indeed was a shopping centre!

    Thanks Steve, – I think we need to shout and tweet the names to those in City Hall to make them listen!
