BSB Live: Automatic Iris | EP Release

  • Black Shirt Brewing Co. 3719 Walnut Street Denver, CO, 80205 United States (map)

Automatic Iris is proud to announce the release of Character Break, our second EP on Friday, August 24th at Black Shirt Brewing with our friends Wire Faces and Kinesics. 

A soundtrack for the nights you’re too proud to give in to your regrets, Automatic Iris is a rock band from Denver, Colorado. The band’s original pop songs, drawing from indie rock, folk, new wave and alt-country, incorporate sweet harmonies, filthy distortion and occasional garage rock freak outs. Each Automatic Iris performance includes tales of smart people making poor decisions, songs of heartbreak, geography and always… always… Science Minute with Courtney, a highly educational, strange but true scientific fact from our resident neuroscientist. 

Wire Faces is an experimental rock trio from Colorado. Often characterized as "post-punk", their music seethes with primal energy, chaos and melodic finesse. Since 2011, the trio has had the opportunity to play the SXSW festival, won multiple awards and charted on the "CMJ Top 200". The trio is currently in the studio writing and recording a series of singles and music videos to release in 2014. 

A rock group based in Denver, Kinesics is inspired by Manchester Orchestra, Lucy Dacus, and the spirit of Saddle Creek, apparent in their impactful lyrics with almost too many words packed into each line and spacey instrumentation. The songwriting in this project primarily functions as a processing mechanism for everyday communication and interaction, and has experienced growth from a solo project, to a duo, to a dynamic and cohesive four-piece.
