Automatic have Shared a new Video For "Automation"

Automatic have announced their first headlining North American tour in support of their acclaimed new album Excess. The band will cross the states for a NYC performance at Rough Trade’s Indieplaza Festival, before heading back to Los Angeles to open for Bauhaus at the iconic The Greek Theatre. From there they hit Desert Daze and carry on to headline Brooklyn’s Market Hotel, Chicago’s Empty Bottle followed by Toronto, Montreal, Nashville and Levitation festival in Austin. Tickets are on sale this Wednesday at 10AM. The news arrives fresh off the band’s packed LA record release show at The Regent.

Today, the Los Angeles trio have shared a new video for Excess track, “Automaton.” Of the track, Automatic explains “Automaton is about having to deprogram yourself from capitalist ways of thinking, but, of course, we framed the song in our sci-fi theme – with an actual automaton as protagonist.” The band’s accompanied video, created by Yana Pan and Jenny Nirgends, uses paper cut animations to illustrate one automaton’s journey to break from the pack and create something new.
