Return To Earth’s sophomore album and Metal Blade Records debut, Automata, hits stores everywhere on August 17th. Mixing for Automata was handled by Guns N’ Roses’ Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal who also happened to mix RTE’s first album, Captains of Industry, and polished up what turned out to be quite an ambitious multi-track recording. Automata was self produced by Chris and Brett under their new production company, Fight Mannequins. Brett comments: “We wanted complete control over the proceedings, as we felt that only we knew what was best to get the songs across.” Vocalist Ron Scalzo adds: “After going about the recording process modestly for our first album, Captains of Industry, we decided to up the ante for Automata – better studios and mics, more tracks, more gear – we wanted to create a heavier, denser sound with more dynamics this time around. Heavier and denser can be a nightmare without the proper mix, and our old friend Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal once again made magic with more tracks than most sane people would dare to blend together to make everything sound cohesive. With file management not necessarily being our ‘strong suit’, Mr. Thal once again outdid himself trying to piece all the madness together.”
