Head Automatica Album Finished, But Fans Will Need To Wait Longer

Written by Mike Hohnen on July 2, 2012

Indie rock outfit Head Automatica have earned somewhat of a cult-like following around the world, so you can imagine fan’s relief that the long-awaited album Swan Damage had been finished. The relief was short-lived, however, with the band announcing to fans that record label Warner Bros. has shelved the master copy of the album.

It’s been more than 6 years now since their last release Propaganda, which dropped in 2006. That was only two years after their debut Decadence, so when the years rolled by with no new material, red flags began to pop up. The band had mentioned in 2009 that recording had finished for their third album Swan Damage and they were entering the mixing stages before offering it to fans, though it was then that the project fell silent.

Having announced a series of shows through the UK, buzz began to kick up around Head Automatica, prompting fans to put forward the million-dollar question, where’s the album? Frontman Daryl Palumbo (ex-Glassjaw) responded with the following tweet:

 

According to Palumbo, the album has been held ‘in Purgatory’ by the record label. So unfortunately, the release date is virtually unpredictable. I apologise my fellow fans, hopefully soon we will have better Head Automatica news for you!
