Few albums pack the kind of emotional wallop We Are Augustines' Rise Ye Sunken Ships
delivers. The record's somber backstory
, combined with exuberant song fare and Billy McCarthy's fever pitched yelps at the helm of the good ship Augustine lands a total knockout blow (and then there's the band's bands live performance...sheesh!
). The band's song "Juarez" is but one encapsulation of all three aspects of the band's music coming together, and now brings with it a stunning new video that's evocative of the imagery the song leads the mind to; sunburned earth, dilapidated border towns, religion, long journeys into the horizon, and maybe even a little drunken revelry along the way. The video was directed by Matt Amato, who also lent his talents to the band's previous video for "Book of James"
