In the spirit of their new album Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation), Counting Crows will be introducing some of their favorite artists on the second leg of their headlining summer tour, The Outlaw Roadshow, which grew out of the Outlaw Roadshow indie rock showcases that Adam Duritz and Ryan Spaulding of Ryan’s Smashing Life have been staging at CMJ and SXSW in recent years. Supporting the Crows on The Outlaw Roadshow’s 2nd leg this summer will be We Are Augustines, Kasey Anderson and The Honkies, and Field Report.

Brooklyn-based We Are Augustines have just released a brand new music video for the band’s new single, “Book Of James”. Directed by Matt Amato, the video stars young actor Brady Corbet and was filmed this summer in and around the boroughs of New York City. Taken from the band’s debut album, Rise Ye Sunken Ships, “Book Of James,” a track produced by Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene), is singer Billy McCarthy‘s gripping eulogy for his deceased brother James, a once-resilient spirit who succumbed to the pressures bearing down on him.
