With their critically acclaimed debut album ‘A Living & A Dying Game’ and a string of fine singles already under their belts 2016 is shaping up to be another busy year for August Wells.
Off the back of their largest tour to date and as they prepare for the release of their sophomore album “Madness Is The Mercy” on the 9th of Sept and which sees them once again team up with Irish independent label ‘Forever In Financial Arrears’ (FIFA Records) we are offered another taste of what to expect form the new long player in the form of ‘This Man Cries’
The album features a selection of top quality psychedelic chamber-pop tracks with strange brass, haunting beautiful piano, and a vocal that has been described as “possibly the most evocative, even beautiful, Irish singing voice ever recorded”
Ken Griffin and pianist John Rauchenberger have met in the middle of differing musical pasts to form a band who would sit easily at the same table as Scott Walker or John Cale.
