The Automatic let fans pick their setlist

The band want to be told what to play on tour

The Automatic are asking fans to decide what songs they play on their next tour.

Iwan Griffiths from the band wrote in a Myspace bulletin explaining their plans for the next tour.

“We’re starting to think about the next tour and dragging out and dusting off the songs from the first album,” he wrote. “Basically we were just wondering what songs you wanted to hear live and direct in your local venues, basically because we can’t make up our minds!”


The band have set up an online poll on their forum for fans to vote on.

Meanwhile The Automatic are finishing recording their second album at the moment, with Griffiths explaining: “We’re fast approaching the end of the sessions for LP numero dos.”
