    Self-titled EP

    by Samuel Barker

    We are all familiar with Autopilot Off, even if you are not aware of it. When Warped Tour staple Cooter made its way to a major label contract a band with a similar name began crying about the bandís name. Rather than have all their gear ruined by the tears of some other band, the band jumped names to Autopilot Off. This could have hurt the band, but after one listen to this EP, it is clear that they are on the right path to keeping their music alive.

    What did Autopilot Off do with this new beginning? Well, they stayed true to their past sound. The amalgamation of pop rock and punk makes for something solid that is missing from current pop punk bands who are coming forward in waves. When you think of their music, do not hear think Blink-182 or Sum-41. Think of radio friendly rock with some punk influence. Rather than octave chord leads and nasally vocals about being a dork, the band puts together some solid rock riffs and make something fun to hear.

    Upon jumping on board with Island/Def Jam, Autopilot Off joined a label with another solid band of this type, American Hi-Fi. This definitely will give this band a chance to find their niche and a good home to their music.

    Island, looking to set the band up with something to tour on, came up with the EP. Itís short, sweet, to the point and this release does itís job making people go crazy waiting for a full-length record. Despite the set back of having to play the name change game, Autopilot Off seems to be in control of its ship.
