Head Automatica Biography
The Long Island, New York USA-based modern Electro-Rock outfit Head Automatica was created by singer Daryl Palumbo and producer + beatmaker Dan 'The Automator' Nakamura.
The pair released their first album, "Decadence", in August
2004 but touring and promotion were put on hold while Palumbo was treated
for Crohn's disease.
During 2005 Head Automatica became a five-piece unit with Craig Bonich on guitar, Jessie Nelson on keyboards, Jarvis Morgan Holden on bass, Larry Gorman on drums and obviously, Palumbo on vocals.
The quintet put out the single/video "Beating Heart Baby" and hit the road, playing gigs along the way with Dashboard Confessional, Thrice, The Cure, Interpol and others.
Head Automatica's sophomore album, "Popaganda", was released in June 2006; the CD, which included the single "Laughing At You", peaked at #69 on The Billboard 200.
