Colorado psych-rock band Augustus is coming to The Conor Byrne in Seattle on July 28 as part of the second leg of their US tour, which precedes the release of Idle, their ambitious new EP, out Fall 2018. Augustus has been dubbed “one of the most entertaining and original acts in Colorado” by Front Range Explorer.
Their sound has evolved with new sophisticated arrangements and unpredictable power since their start in 2013. The video for “Demons” was made in collaboration with Brooklyn filmmaker Van Nguyen. The captivating and touching video features footage of a traditional funeral in Vietnam for the filmmaker’s grandmother, a 3-day ceremony that includes mourning, a magic show, a play, dragons, demons, monkeys and more.
