Backseat Surprise is now released Feb 14th 2012. It is also be available at itunes and www.unkledunkrecords.com or www.automan.ca. After a successful advancement, touring behind the 1st release “Pocket Change”, which included an opening slot with Iron Maiden, touring North America, and landing the track ‘Milldog Blues’ in the new Cuba Gooding Jr movie “The Hitlist,” Automan.ca are about to open a new chapter with the release of ”Backseat Surprise,” their second effort.

This record is diverse, incorporating the band’s familiar rock and blues feel along with the darkness and heaviness of tracks like “Hurts To Be Alive” and the Zeppelin-like “Down To The Bone”. Also in the mix is the pop rock “Rock It Together” and the dark bluesy “Livin Bitter Better” and “Sweaty Hand of Fate.” Remaining tracks “Porno Queen” “Forty Five” “Bona Fide” and “Loose Lips” are straight up pure sleeze concert Rock & Roll music. “Backseat Surprise” is produced and engineered by Greg Looper (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers / Mudcrutch), recorded in Toronto, Canada and co-produced by Darrell Millar and mastered by Justin Shturtz at Sterling Sound in NYC. . Pick it up at Best Buy in USA, HMV in Canada and Europe. Also available on iTunes, Amazon.com and many more download sites.
