August Wellstouring Ireland and the UK throughout the summer

What you may need to know…

1. The brainchild of Ken Griffin (ex-Rollerskate Skinny, Kid Silver, Favourite Sons) and pianist John Rauchenberger (Daniel Carter, among others), August Wells specialise in baritone, world-weary ballads.

2.
The project’s debut album, A Living and a Dying Game, was released in March 2014, and ensured them a busy touring cycle in support, culminating in recent supports in New York’s Bowery Hall for noted Rollerskate Skinny nerd Glen Hansard.

3. Streaming above is A Little Too Real, taken from their recent Windmill Lane session. New single She Was a Question is slated for release shortly through FIFA Records.

4. The band has announced a full schedule of dates around venues and festivals throughout the country for June and July, including Indiependence, BARE in the Woods, and Clonmel Junction festivals. More info here.

Verdict: Another chapter in the accomplished bodies of work of its members, August Wells pack croon-alongs big and strong enough to stand up on their own.

    Everything Ken Griffin has done is incredible.

    Horsedrawn Wishes & Dead City Sunbeams are two of the best albums ever made.

    They are amongst us! Velvety Undergroundy Sinata cool crooned & played with a world weary insouciance. Make yerselves look good amongst your pals in years to come (Not just for hipsters). When somebody eventually writes the best indie film ever they will provide the soundtrack.
