  • Band members: William McCarthy, Eric Sanderson, Rob Allen
  • Summary: After the band Pela ended, singer Billy McCarthy and bassist Eric Sanderson, along with new drummer Rob Allen, formed We Are Augustines. The death of Billy McCarthy's brother had a great influence on the songs on the debut album produced by Dave Newfield.

    Rise Ye Sunken Ships is a monster of an album, rich in credibility and one that is often raucous, but never noisy.

    Throughout the record, the songs' emotional undercurrent hinges on the subject and content.

    Uncomfortably personal, but it sounds irresistible. [April 2012, p.102]

    We Are Augustines have created a record that gives the listeners all the time they need to explore the ideas inside without ever threatening to push them out the door, creating the life-sustaining atmosphere necessary to make Rise Ye Sunken Ships the kind of place you live rather than visit.

    It's a disappointment that their live energy hasn't been replicated on Rise Ye Sunken Ships.
  6. Rise Ye Sunken Ships is actually pretty great, but guys, just dial it down a bit yeah?

    McCarthy's catharsis is often gripping. [Apr 2012, p.88]
