Augustana Have Broken Up!

Augustana Have Broken Up!

This was unexpected…wow!

Formed in 2002, vocalist/guitarist Dan Layus launched Augustana with a couple of friends while attending Greenville College in Illinois. In early 2003, they self-released their debut album Midwest Skies and Sleepless Mondays, moved to California in 2004 and toured with the likes of Counting Crows, Goo Goo Dolls and Maroon 5. They signed with Epic Records the following year. (Red Bull)

Augustana achieved their initial fame to claim with 2005’s “All The Stars And Boulevards,” which featured their smash hit single “Boston”. In 2008 their popularity rose with the release of their third LP Can’t Love, Can’t Hurt which featured their hit single “Sweet and Low”. In April 2011 they released their self-titled fourth studio album, which turned out to be their final album as a band.

Vocalist/guitarist Dan Layus told Red Bull USA:

“Basically the two original members with me as well, Justin [South] and Jared [Palomar], have parted ways. It’s a sad thing, but it’s been an amicable split and it’s just kinda tough. It’s hard to keep a band together. We had a good run and it was a blast while we could do it, but everybody is good. Everybody is friends. It’s just tough to sustain a business like that.”

As a big fan of the band this is truly heartbreaking, first it was R.E.M. & now Augustana. 2011 is turning out to be the year that band’s break-up. This isn’t cool, but me and the rest of the e-rocks team wish the best of luck to the band members on their future side-projects, and we thank them for all the awesome music they created! :)
