AUTUMN NEWS


AUTUMN stream "Truth Be Told (Exhale)" on mxdwn.com!
'Cold Comfort' available worldwide now!

Today, online music destination mxdwn.com will be hosting the premiere of Truth Be Told (Exhale) from AUTUMN's new album, Cold Comfort. The song is the 8th track on the record and contains some of the albums most poignant and moving melodies. The track can be heard now HERE.

Terrorizer Magazine describes Cold Comfort as "Haunting, lush gothic metal the Netherlands that drips with melody." This is one that fans of Katatonia, The Gathering, etc. will not want to miss!

The title track, as well as the video for The Scarecrow, can be seen now at www.metalblade.com/autumn.

Cold Comfort is the band's fifth full-length effort and their third for Metal Blade Records. It offers a collection of striking songs blended into a diverse and yet surprisingly compact album, one that AUTUMN considers to be their most personal and meaningful to date.

AUTUMN needed not look far for a man to put at the helm with the right pioneering philosophy for the band to begin taking leaps: Erik-Jan Dodd, AUTUMN's live sound engineer since the My New Time era, envisioned a more vintage approach for Cold Comfort. An experiment the band was all too eager to embrace, explains guitarist Mats van der Valk. "If there's anyone who knows what we're all about and more importantly: what we could potentially be all about, it's E-J."

AUTUMN guitarist Mats van der Valk comments on the band's upcoming shows in Germany: "We're well pleased that we'll be setting foot on German soil again this February, bringing Cold Comfort to Berlin, Kφln and Hamburg. We've grown fond of these cities during previous tours, have always been welcomed with heartfelt smiles by awesome audiences. We're very much looking forward to meeting up with fans and friends, old and new, as we hit the stage for the first German shows of the Cold Comfort campaign!"

AUTUMN launch brand new video for "The Scarecrow" exclusively at website of German Metal Hammer!
'Cold Comfort' available worldwide now! Full album stream available!

Beginning today, Metal-Hammer.de will be hosting the premiere of the brand new video clip The Scarecrow from AUTUMN's new album, Cold Comfort. Surf over HERE to check out the clip!

The band comments the video clip as follows: “The Scarecrow is the opening track of our new album Cold Comfort. It’s probably our most doomy and melancholic song ever. Pretty heavy as well. The lyrics are about negligence, guilt and death. The musical theme restarts every 19 beats. Good luck figuring it out!”

The video was shot by Neil Mowbray at Plaza Danza in Groningen and in Glasgow. AUTUMN bassist Jeroen Vrielink did all the video editing and additional shots!

Terrorizer Magazine describes Cold Comfort as "Haunting, lush gothic metal the Netherlands that drips with melody." This is one that fans of Katatonia, The Gathering, etc. will not want to miss!

AUTUMN are streaming their new album Cold Comfort in its entirety for a week online at Zero Tolerance.

Cold Comfort is the band's fifth full-length effort and their third for Metal Blade Records. It offers a collection of striking songs blended into a diverse and yet surprisingly compact album, one that AUTUMN considers to be their most personal and meaningful to date.

While AUTUMN's roots remain firmly planted in heavy rock/guitar-oriented soil, their branches are stretching out to more progressive musical genres and alternative approaches to the sound of individual songs. Guitarist Jens van der Valk elaborates: "In terms of sound we realized there were still leaps to be taken out of our comfort zone and into unthought-of possibilities. As a first step in the right direction, our main focus was on a more open, transparent sound, one through which the often multi-layered nature of our songs would be optimally channeled."
