"We are proud to announce that we have signed with Distort Inc./Fontana North and Goodfight/eOne!

We are super excited to be on the Distort/FN and GF/eOne rosters and look forward to working with such amazing teams!" - Josh Ligaya


The new EP will be the bands follow up to 'Panacea,' which was released in 2013 and is available for streaming on their official Bandcamp HERE. A standalone single title 'Adverse Condition' released just a few months later is also available.

Hailing from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, AURAS is comprised of four friends; Josh Ligaya and Aaron Hallman (guitars), Eric Almeida (vocals), and Nathan Bulla (drums), bound by groove, and centered by a constant pulse.
