Dead Boy Robotics, a three piece from Edinburgh, Scotland, incorporate laptop, synths, guitars, tribal drumming, vocal harmonies, yelps and screams to create atmospheric new wave that is both epic and intense. Influenced by many bands and musical styles including Animal Collective, Subtle, Liars and HEALTH, the trio of Gregor McMillan, Mike Bryant and Paul Bannon have been highly praised on numerous blogs and online zines for their avant-garde take on electronic music. Since becoming one of only 16 acts cherry-picked from over 1400 entries to play Scotland’s T in the Park festival unsigned band stage in July 2009, Dead Boy Robotics have received air play from renowned DJ's including Vic Galloway, Jim Gellatly, Tom Robinson and in May 2011 the band recorded a live session for Ally McCrae's BBC introducing show. Dead Boy Robotics self-released their debut EP, 'Tale of the Winter Kids', in May 2010, to much critical acclaim. May 2011 saw the release of the single 'Ever', a split 7” vinyl with Edinburgh band The Machine Room, as part of Tape Singles Club. Again, this release was met with much acclaim and was seen by many as another exciting taster of the bands highly anticipated first album. Their self-titled debut album was recorded and mixed during the Autumn and Winter months of 2010 at Tape, Edinburgh, by Stephen Watkins. It is currently set to be released on 28th November 2011 and will be preceded by the single ‘Gatherer on the Threshold’, scheduled for release as a download only single on 31st October 2011.
