LA indie pop trio Automatic have released a new music video for their song "Automaton" and announced a tour today. The music video was animated by Yana Pan & Jenny Nirgends to eye-catching effect. The band say, “'Automaton' is about having to deprogram yourself from capitalist ways of thinking, but, of course, we framed the song in our sci-fi theme - with an actual automaton as protagonist." Watch the video below.

With the "Automaton" video release, Automatic also unveiled more dates for their North American tour supporting their sophomore album, Excess, from earlier this year. The tour runs from September through November and features a handful of opening dates for OSEES and Bauhaus (the band's Lola Dompe is the daughter of Bauhaus drummer Kevin Haskins) as well as appearances at festivals Desert Daze and Levitation. Check out all of the dates below.

They'll play NYC twice over the tour, appearing at the just-announced Indieplaza festival at Rockefeller Plaza on September 17, and again on October 14 at Market HotelTickets for the Market Hotel show are on sale starting this Wednesday, 8/17, at 10 AM.
