On Tuesday August 9th, we will be releasing our first LP, titled No Rest. While it will be available on all the major digital distributors (iTunes, Amazon, et al.), we will also be hosting it as a name-your-price download on our Bandcamp page bundled with a digital booklet. This album represents songs spanning the band’s inception to now, containing the 9 best tracks out of the dozen recorded since our debut EP, Diver. This album was recorded toward the end of 2009 into 2010 as part of sessions we streamed for a live audience, who got to witness the creative process unfold. In the past 6-8 months we’ve taken some time off from shows to work on some other projects as well as focus on mixing the album, a task we took upon ourselves with Ben at the helm. Though we’ve taken some time to complete No Rest, we think the personal attention to detail we’ve been able to give it has really made this album something special. It’s rich and nuanced and we think you’ll enjoy it. Come back on Tuesday and share this album with your friends. Let our hard work proliferate!

Here’s some interesting trivia about the song: This is the first single mixed and mastered by the band themselves, with Ben taking the helm and some additional mixing/mastering by Michael. The somewhat distorted harmony vocals were recorded on a 1960’s era rotary telephone that was converted into a microphone by Michael. The band originally referred to this song as “Loop Jam”, since it was built on a foundation of guitar and bass loops. If you listen closely in the first verse you can hear samples of a toy gun firing off in time with the “stray bullets” line.
Did anyone watch us on Ustream while we were in the studio with this one? What do you remember most? Did it turn out how you expected?
This Saturday we’ll be playing our first show in many months in celebration of Ben’s birthday. Come out and see Hanna Barbarians, Secret Ghost Champion, Automorrow and special guests at The Grotto. Visit our calendar if you need directions. The show kicks off right at 10pm, and will only cost $3 per person or $5 for two people so bring a friend! Flyer below.
We’ve got a couple pieces of news for everyone. To anyone who read our last post, but doesn’t like us on Facebook, we managed to win 102.1 The Edge’s Local Smackdown for all three weeks and were retired into their hall of fame! Our song Martians got three times the local radio love thanks to everyone who voted. As another way of saying thanks, I’ve created three free ringtones of the single which can be found in our downloads section or by texting AUTOMORROW to 69937.
Also, If you’ve noticed the eerily empty venues and drought of Automorrow over the last few months, fear no more! We’ve just booked a show at The Grotto in Fort Worth for November 13th. View the details on our calendar, and come out to help us celebrate Ben’s birthday!
It’s been a while since we’ve updated and I thought I’d share some exciting news! We’re featured in 102.1 The Edge’s Local Smackdown this week, and our fans on Facebook and Twitter cast their votes to help us win a spot on the radio. Tune in to 102.1 The Edge this Sunday at 11pm to hear us and don’t be afraid to call in and tell Mark what you think (214-787-1102). We are now the defending champions in this coming week’s voting, so head over to www.kdge.com and help us do it again!
Our newest single, “Martians” has been released and we’ve made it available for free download at automorrow.bandcamp.com. We want this to be heard, so download it and tell your friends! The download also includes cover art and lyrics. This single will also be available on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital distributors on July 1st for anyone who feels generous or wants the convenience those stores may provide. This song marks the second single towards our full-length album.
We hope you like it as much as we do, and I’d like to encourage you to leave some comments on our YouTube preview of the song here to let us know what you think.
