AKR is proud to announce Angelo De Augustine newest album, Tomb — his first recorded in a studio and produced by musician Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman; credits include work on albums for St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, Glen Hansard, and Rhye). We will be releasing the album on January 18, 2019.
Tomb is a beginning for Angelo, both emotionally and in his career. It’s a motion towards positivity, addressing lost love, the worthwhile cost of honesty, and the ramifications of regret. Tomb isn’t about burying or hiding something away, it’s about opening the seal and letting something new emerge. The album’s title reveals these sentiments: “Throughout our lives we bury many dead things in our hearts and minds,” says Angelo about the record. “There they go to rest and hopefully are reborn as something beautiful for the world to behold.”

We’ve released two visual versions of “Time,” the first single from the record. The FADER today premiered an intimate live video of lead single “Time” featuring Sufjan Stevens playing grand piano and filmed in Manhattan’s Reservoir Studios, where Tomb was also recorded. The second visual, directed by Jess Calleiro, features the studio version of the album. They’re also over at FADER.
A limited edition, first-pressing in two variants, red and yellow, is available for preorder here.
