Augie March

Augie March

After a half decade hiatus, one of the nation’s most respected indie-rock acts returns to Tanks, with an expanded line-up and new album, Haven’s Dumb.

Regularly touted as one of Australia’s ‘greatest’ or ‘finest’ bands; with albums and songs on the ‘best ever’ lists – their music is impossible to categorise they have traditional elements at times, then get wildly avant garde at others. They are that rarest of bands that have enjoyed both critical and commercial success – at times their songs have been on almost every radio format in the country – with gold and platinum albums to their credit, yet they remain perennial outsiders.

Augie March started in the mid-1990s in Melbourne, with three of the members originally heralding from Shepparton in Central Victoria. Their first gig was for a friend’s art exhibition at a gallery and Augie March was born. Soon they were playing in pubs and garnering rapt attention far and wide. From their Thanks for the Memes EP (1998) and Waltz EP (1999) to their popular albums – Sunset Studies (2000), Strange Bird (2002), Moo, You Bloody Choir (2005) and Watch Me Disappear (2008), including the most recent Haven’s Dumb, Augie March have always made great music.

In 2009, after a period of commercial success, the band – for a variety of reasons – ceased enjoying being Augie March, and decided to take an indefinite break. That break ended up lasting five years.  Now they’re back with an exciting new album that’s garnering great reviews, and that will be cherished by those who have kept faith with this rare outfit.

Stepping back into the live scene, Augie March played in the same venue in Brunswick Victoria that they made their debut 16 years earlier. Their return sees them in better form, playing the best they ever have and enjoying themselves more than they have in a long time. For fans around the country, this is the news they’ve been waiting for. In fact, with the announcement of their national tour, the band’s shows have already begun to sell out around Australia. It’s evident that even after more than half a decade away from concert stages that fans still love Augie March as much as ever.
