Augustana have split up. Vocalist/guitarist Dan Layus told Red Bull USA, “Basically the two original members with me as well, Justin [South] and Jared [Palomar], have parted ways. It’s a sad thing, but it’s been an amicable split and it’s just kinda tough. It’s hard to keep a band together. We had a good run and it was a blast while we could do it, but everybody is good. Everybody is friends. It’s just tough to sustain a business like that.”
The band’s last full-length, ‘Augustana,’ was released in April through Epic Records.
