Harvested from the most significant American musical movements and rooted in truly good songwriting, the distinct Denver psych-rock quartet Augustus is taking Colorado by storm. Formed in late 2013, Augustus released their debut EP, "The Common Collapse", to critical and commercial success and has been building a steady following due to their extensive gigging and captivating live shows.

In 2015, the group released their second EP, 'Into Frames' which was called "Colorado’s strongest psych-rock/mashup album of 2015." by Colorado Music Buzz. It debuted on over 50 different college radio stations across the US and Canada. Their hit song ‘Return’ was ranked #9 on the Troubadour’s Road top 25 songs of 2015 and the album has been licensed for use by MTV, E! channel, and the Discovery channel.

The band kicked off 2016 with high profile festival appearances in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins, and has begun playing festivals in surrounding states. Released in October 2016, Augustus' 3rd album, 'The Mercury EP' marks a turning point for the band. Marquee Magazine said "It’s the perfect example of the group’s ability to take their multi-faceted sound and put forth something that no longer sounds like a blending of styles, but rather a succinct, continuous sound of their own." The album has again been licensed by major networks including AE, MTV, and the Discovery channel.

2017 saw the band morph into the 4 piece, full time touring, rock outfit that they were destined to be. They toured the Big Sky region, played SXSW in Austin, and capped off a 22 day, 19 city tour that brought them to major markets like Chicago, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Boston. The band is currently tracking their 4th album.
