Noisy math metal punks LOWER AUTOMATION premiere new single, new LP coming up on Zegema Beach Records!

1 min read

Three years following the release of their critically acclaimed second EP β€œShoebox Companion”, Chicago’s noise/math-rock trio LOWER AUTOMATION now return with their first full-length album. Self-titled this new effort will arrive July 12 via Zegema Beach Records and runs 10 tracks in length, with Lower Automation constantly pushing the envelope by offering an explosive, frenetic and inventive concoction of mathcore, noise-rock, metal and punk. Today, we’re stoked to give you their wicked new song “Combover”!

β€œWe wanted to make the weirdest album we could.” – says the band about this new album.

β€œIn late 2019 we started throwing ideas around and ended up with 12 or so demos. Once we were in quarantine, we would have long phone conversations where we would dismantle and reassemble the songs in different ways. This music is a big departure from our last couple EPs. We let ourselves riff a little more off the cuff. In August of 2020, we spent 5 days recording the album ourselves in a cabin in the middle of nowhere in Michigan. It was hot and claustrophobic, perfect for an album that sounds like a panic attack.”

“Lower Automation” sees the band fulfilling the potential hinted on their previous two releases, transitioning effortlessly from the caothic mathcore of someone like Dillinger Escape Plan to the twisted and irrevent noise-rock of The Jesus Lizard.
