The Sun’s ‘Something For The Weekend’ spoke with Rob Hawkins of The Automatic in a Q&A and asked the singer if the band’s new single ‘Monster’ is a good representation of their new album ‘Not Accepted Anywhere’, due out Monday in the UK. “I’d say Monster is at the poppier end of things,” he said. “We also have heavier stuff which reflects our heavier influences stuff like ‘Refused’ and ‘Million Dead’. We toured with The Kooks and they’re very poppy which was a bit weird as I always thought of us as a punk band. But I don’t mind being lumped in as a pop act.” The full story at thesun.co.uk has since been archived.
