November 11, 2011 - Los Angeles, CA - Augustana today announced they will hit the road this January for a three-week tour kicking off at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA on January 17th.  Tickets for the tour went on sale today, Friday, November 11, 2011 at 10AM local time.

"There has been some confusion regarding the current state of Augustana," says Dan Layus.  "While some members have parted ways, Augustana will continue to tour and perform. We'll be playing songs from all three albums and new material.  We look forward to seeing you all in the New Year"

Released in April of 2011, Augustana's self titled album was recorded in Los Angeles with Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Jacquire King, who is known for his work with Kings of Leon and Norah Jones, among others.  The album delivers on the emotionally resonant, rootsy pop/rock that Augustana have become known for.  The magazine Alternative Press hailed the songs "alternate between gorgeous piano based ballads and twangy rockers each wrapped in Dan Layus' warbled vocals and effortless melodies," and the Seattle Times proclaimed "Every track is album-worthy on a disc built for a spring that may eventually come (check out "Shot in the Dark") - sunglasses, convertible-top down, road trips. Bring it on."

Augustana launched onto the scene with their major-label debut, 2005's All The Stars and Boulevards. The album reached No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. It also spawned two Top 40 hits, "Stars and Boulevards" and "Boston," which was certified digital platinum. The band's follow-up, 2008's Can't Love, Can't Hurt spawned the singles "Sweet and Low," and "I Still Ain't Over You."
