THE AUTOMATON captivate minds, hearts and souls with their debut album “The Exit”. This Brisbane-based heavy four-piece have dished up a truly dynamic collection of songs, bending genres into a full spectrum of sound . Full of attention-commanding power, attitude, and deeply reflective vocals delivered by the band’s frontwoman Deja Solomona, they enmesh a total synergy with powerful drums, heavy guitar and filthy bass riffs.
This record ventures across elements of blues-infused hard rock coupled with a healthy dose of dark stoner riffs, right through to open acoustic guitars almost psychedelic modes. Working closely with Steve Kempnich, under the helm of Ian Haug at the legendary Airlock Studios in Samford, it’s little wonder THE AUTOMATON has put together such a well-written body of work. With a sound that doesn’t strive to carve itself into any specific genre, it creates a path of its own.
With their album release tour dates already underway, THE AUTOMATON have kicked things blistering, hitting the main stage of the Mitchell Creek Rock n Blues Fest, playing to massive crowds. With travel restrictions as they are, the guys are keeping this first run of shows tightly bunched together with plans to take their new album to further country regions once the skies clear a little for national touring.

Heavy, magnetic and visceral, THE AUTOMATON don’t play it safe. With a dark, stoner-psych inflected groove, THE AUTOMATON tie molten riffs to potent lyrics that work through obsession, disconnection, and desire to find what truly makes us feel alive.
Starting in 2019 in the backwaters of Brisbane, Australia, THE AUTOMATON are known for their relentless live shows, female artillery, and commitment to their art form.
THE AUTOMATON point straight at the heart of their upcoming debut album, with a bleak, sparse trip into the desert of modern disconnection.
