Head Automatica is a power pop and rock band, formed by Glassjaw frontman Daryl Palumbo.
The beginnings of the band stemmed from singer Daryl Palumbo's interests in the hip hop and brit pop genres. Palumbo felt that the material that was inspired by these genres did not fit into Glassjaw's spectrum and so Head Automatica was created to showcase this.
The band's debut album, Decadence, was released in August 2004. Charting on the Billboard Magazine top 200 albums and Top Heatseekers charts 1, the album was the brainchild of Palumbo, who was known better for his work in the hardcore music scene, and Dan 'The Automator' Nakamura, famous for his production work with groups including Gorillaz and Handsome Boy Modeling School. The two allegedly met at a party and worked on what later became the album. Palumbo then recruited the other current members as a touring group, and toured the United States
