Pennie quits The Automatic

Band say keyboardist 'grew apart from the band'
4 hours ago

The Automatic's keyboardist Pennie has quit the band.

The keyboard player and backing singer announced his departure from the band this morning (September 18).

In a statement posted on their official website, the band explained that the keyboardist had found the last year 'increasingly unenjoyable', and that he was 'growing apart from the rest of the band'.

The three other members of the band - Rob Hawkins, James Frost and Iwan Griffiths - have stated that they plan to continue, and will fly to the USA to begin recording their second album soon.

Pennie, a member of The Automatic since 2003, played his final shows with the band at the Get Loaded In The Park festival (August 25-26).

Don't think they'll last all that much longer now tbh. Is all I'm going to say on the matter.

Awwwh no. Although on a lighter note, I read that as

"Band say keyboardist 'grew apart from the band' 4 hours ago"

for some reason, i never really thought he looked like he REALLY wanted to be in the band. in a lot of press things i thought he looked very sullen and whatnot.

hmm i'll miss his backing vocals greatly.
