New music from our friends in Augustana? Could it be?? It's been a tumultuous couple of years for the Boston band and while the future of the band was looking pretty bleak for a while there, this latest Facebook update from lead singer Daniel Layus should help quell any concerns fans might have about the future of the band:

"Hey everyone, I know it's been a little while since we've released or shared any new recorded material...although we've played this song live for quite some time now, I just wanted to share this new working/demo version of 'Alive' with you all...I just recently recorded at's a one take recording, one mic with me on acoustic guitar... hope you enjoy it, thank you so much." -Daniel
