Biography

It’s been seven years since the Seattle-based punk trio Autonomadic first formed, but they’re rocking harder now than ever. In September the indie label Bleeding Ear released the band’s new album, Gift of the Sun. This twenty-track scorcher retains Autonomadic’s old-school SoCal-punk spirit, but updates their gritty sound with creamier guitar tones and richer backing harmonies.

Autonomadic’s new album Gift of the Sun is loaded with catchy hooks and provoking lyrics. It will start hammering away at you from the very first track, “Burn,” with its infectious Oi-style chorus. Next, the fierce burst of angst from “Discordia” will knock you clean over. Then the poppy “Blood & Guts” will bounce in, to sweep up the wreckage; and you’ll be hooked until the dying strains of the bittersweet anthem “Postcards,” on track twenty.

The trio first established their punk-rock swagger back in 2003 with a self-released EP, Sterilize the Poor in Spirit. Over the next two years Autonomadic toured like bandits up and down the West Coast, from Anchorage, Alaska to Orange County, California; from Edmonton, Alberta to Reno, Nevada. Finally they paused in 2005 to record a full-length album, Lies, Fear, & Hate.

But then the band’s original drummer, Chad Schultz, quit, burnt out from the late nights and long drives. The two remaining members, guitarist Justin Ludwig and bassist Todd Weaver, spent months searching for the right replacement. They found him in musical prodigy Robert Baker, who was just seventeen at the time.
