    Augustana make music that was meant for big moments. Their songs are the kinds that play over the climax of a classic film, during a World Series victory, or on someone's wedding day. That's the kind of rock music that the world really could use a lot more of, and Augustana are making it with every note they commit to tape.

    Lush melodies run alongside poetic and poignant lyrics on their forthcoming self-titled album due out April 26, 2011. The first single "Steal Your Heart" captivates with each and every harmony and heartfelt line. As a whole, the record examines a myriad of emotions over soundscapes that rival the breadth and brilliance of U2 and Coldplay. Augustana became true contenders for the pop rock crown with this offering, and they've made a timeless album in the process.

    Augustana frontman Dan Layus sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino in this exclusive interview about the group's new self-titled album, songwriting, and he performs "Steal Your Heart" acoustically.

    Without further adieu, watch the interview and exclusive acoustic performance below!
