More importantly…the name. Upon the decision to welcoming a new bassist, it seemed silly to trash the name completely. It’s still the same band with the same overall goal of producing technical & intriguing instrumental rock. Conversely, A LOT has changed and they felt it necessary to give some sort of differentiation between the ‘Nate Murray era’ and the ‘Era of Khan’. What better way to do this than with punctuation that really have no effect on the pronunciation of the name. So there in enters the question marks. An interesting twist that actually draws a bit of mystery into the name. I guess what it really boils down to is this: “We are Auto Automatic, you may see us with exclamation marks or questions marks, either way it’s the same band and you can refer to us whichever way you prefer! We even thought about ‘#Auto##Automatic’ in hopes of becoming the next twitter trend…but eh.” says guitarist, Brian Larsen.
Now that everythings been cleared up, here is Auto!Automatic!!’s updated Bio:
After a year hiatus, a new bass player, and a new album in the works, it is evident that Tampa, Florida’s Auto!Automatic!! is completely re-shaped. Disregard your past notions of what this band might have been, they now boast a darker and heavier, yet somehow brighter and jazzier sound. In 2010, Auto!Automatic!! received a Best of the Bay award for “Best Progressive Fusion Band.” From local newspaper: Creative Loafing. The new sound fuses various elements of Rock with Jazz, Groove, Reggae, and even Hip-Hop undertones. Guitarist Brian Larsen has mastered the use of various loop pedals in ways that would make Minus the Bear say, “Wait, huh?” all while the rhythm section locks you in place for a rollercoaster ride of motion. Intense rhythms, tons of melody, and all coming from just a 3-piece band. Keep your eyes out for Auto!Automatic!!’s new album “Difficult, Technically” in early 2011, on Brokenmold Records.
