Hailing from Sacramento, CA, Automatic Rival is a driving alternative rock band that you will not soon forget. Simply put, their music is loud, very melodic, sometimes fast, and always fun. Fronted by David Wallace (vocals/guitar), this threesome delivers a gripping sound that is truly unique in today's world of parody. Wallace's edgy vocals and catchy guitar riffs are supported by the solid foundation of Nathan Shields (bass/vocals) and Jeff Kwiatek (drums). And though by definition Automatic Rival is a relatively new band, Wallace and Shields have been writing songs together for more than five years. The trio was rounded out in April of 2005 with the addition of Kwiatek, and the band has recently completed their first full-length album. The 12-song CD is available for purchase at all live shows, or here on CD Baby.
