Background

AutoBody is a group of friends that formed almost too easily. While all band members had played together before in such bands as the progressive rock/metal group "theR.A.C.E." (theRevoltAgainstCulturalExtinction) and PoP Rock music junkies "Out of Your Mouth", it still seemed like a new experience for the guys. With Jerrod on Bass and lead vocal, Graeme on lead/rhythm guitars and Rob holding down drums the simplicity of a three piece was very appealing. Together for over two and a half years now and currently working on their debut album with as many as thirteen songs, the boys hope to tour, make a video and just generally rock people out with their brand of.....well thats where it gets interesting. "Our songs are hard to pin down, if you had to look for our album in record stores it would be either in rock or metal sections but probably both" says guitar slinger Graeme McInnis. The group describes their songwriting process as "standing in front of the drummer writing on the spot". Some riffs are writtten at home, but they all get worked into a song together. Its like all music really...it is a progression from their influences mashed together by each individual persons tastes, churning out some hard pounding rhythms heavy guitars and raw vocals with a big serving of melody. Together you are left with something that doesnt quite fit in with many other bands or genres. This may be the start of a new one.
