||After a long silence, symphonic band Autumn has finally updated their fans. The Dutch band is waking up from its hiatus and will be doing some special shows in May. More importantly, the band is currently writing their brand new album. Overall, you can expect plenty of activity from them.
The following message was released: "Dear reader, after a hibernation spanning two winters and all seasons in between, Autumn is slowly starting to wake from its slumber. After wrapping up promotion for Cold Comfort, we felt it was necessary to take some time off to focus on a variety of things life had thrown at us. Now we find ourselves rested, replenished and increasingly rearing to go. So, what does the future hold, what can you expect from us?
"For one, we are in writing mode for what is to be our sixth full-length studio album. The first songs are already nearing fine-tuning stage and we haven't even kicked into high gear yet. We're very exited and proud of the new material and the direction it seems to be taking us and we can hardly wait to share it with you! But we will be taking our time: Like any good wine, this should get better with age.
"However, we will be up and about in the meantime. Starting this May, we'll be playing a handful of shows to play off the rust, show our faces, connect, re-connect and have a great time hanging out with anyone who feels like showing up. These shows will be special, one-offs: we'll be playing with a slightly altered, temporary line-up. Filling in for Jan (temporarily working overseas) on drums is long-time friend Jetse Goris (Mountainbirds, ex-Krause) while bass duties will be handled by multi-talented artist Kevin Storm (Cardamon, The Comeback). Expect an archetypal Autumn show, but with a little bit of a twist...
"We can't wait to hit the stage in May and hope to see many of you there. Rest assured, Autumn's days of rest are over and you'll be hearing from us soon!"
