Augustines are back, and it feels so good. Kick you week off on a high by checking out the video for their epic new single 'Are We Alive?' on Gigwise first. 

Taken from the band's upcoming third album, lead single 'Are We Alive'? is an affirming rush of arena-destroying energy. Fitting, the video focusses on the legendary, 'Big Jeff' Jeffrey Johns - renowned among fans and bands for his relentless gig-going and love for live music. 

"I think I go to somewhere between 7-10 shows a week," says Jeff, introducing the video, "and in the past 10 years, maybe somewhere between 3500 to 4000. I mean I pretty much do find the energy to dance at most shows."

"Sometime's life's about being in the right time and the right place."

He adds: "To be honest, it's going to be impossible for me to stop moving - I mean like, they'll probably have to bury me in like a kind of cast iron straight jacket, with about two-hundred-thousand-million tonnes of cement, like somewhere deep under the ocean. Still wouldn't stop me."

Amen, Jeff - never stop. 

'Are We Alive' is released on 1 April.
