Ahead of this month’s UK live comeback at Slam Dunk Festival, Head Automatica have just unveiled a surprise song!

The band’s first new music since 2006 goes by the name Bear The Cross, and is described by Daryl Palumbo as “both a logical and unexpected evolution of Head Automatica’s sound”.

“The sounds and ideas are very familiar but age undeniably changes your personality, creative leanings and approach,” the frontman explains. “There is an urgency and boldness in what you feel empowered to produce after a certain point. Bear The Cross and our new material on the whole are a reflection of that while still constantly maintaining a body moving element.”

Slam Dunk Festival takes place at Hatfield Park and Leeds Temple Newsam on May 25 and 26. Get your tickets now.
