The film has gained steam through an impressive Kickstarter campaign that fully backed the endeavor.
For those that don’t know why their fervent fan base has followed We Are Augustines throughout the years, RISE offers unprecedented access to the group and features their passion and incredible live experience.
“Augustines evoke an incredible sense of providence in their story, and in their music,” wrote director Todd Howe, who was the former guitarist for the Boxer Rebellion. “Like the others interviewed for this film, I immediately was drawn to the band’s passion and artistry. So many people over the past few years have come together, giving selflessly to the band for one reason. Their music needed to be heard. I feel incredibly lucky to be in the unique position to make this film. Along with producer, and Big Vulture co-founder, Josh Kincaid, it is our intention that RISE transcends both music and band to stand on it’s own as a truly compelling film.
“This is an independent film. It is neither commissioned nor funded by the band. However, we have the blessing of all involved in the Augustines camp to document their story, with unrestricted access.”

Premier Guitar recently caught up with the guys in Fall Out Boy during a tour stop just outside of Nashville, and frontman Patrick Stump walked them through all his gear, including his signature Stump-O-Matic guitar.
“When I had this designed, I really was going for something that was a Swiss Army knife,” Stump said. ”I wanted something that could accomplish everything. I have a big collection of vintage guitars, and it’s really fun to play around with them, but on stage, on a tour, I want something that is consistent and easy.”
Learn more about what Stump plays live in the video below.
