"It’s been exactly ten years since the last release by Arizona-based post-punk band Audra. The glam-infused Projekt Records band, consisting of brothers Bret and Bart Helm and more recently, drummer Jason DeWolfe, issued three classic albums in the early 2000s, ushering in a new era of androgyny and power into the new millennium. In the interim, vocalist and guitarist Bret Helm has kept busy, moonlighting as a contributing member to Black Tape for a Blue Girl and most recently, Unto Ashes. While it seemed like Audra was on hiatus for the better part of a decade, the band has re-emerged with a new LP, entitled Dear Tired Friends." - Post-Punk.com
The band has a long history of intense live shows and have shared the stage with greats such as The Mission UK, Peter Murphy, New Model Army, AFI, Nitzer Ebb, etc.
