AUTUMN Forced To Cancel This Weekend's Concert

November 1, 2007

Dutch female-fronted gothic metal band AUTUMN was recently forced to cancel its previously announced German headlining tour and appearance at the Metal Female Voices Fest in Wieze, Belgium due to "serious health problems" suffered by the group's lead singer, Nienke De Jong.

Nienke De Jong has since issued the following update on the matter:

"The past few weeks I've been working on my recovery, trying to get back on my feet. I am happy to say that the effort is starting to pay off, I'm gradualy feeling better and better.

"The show at the Goudvishal next weekend (November 4) is yet still a bit too early at this stage, so unfortunately I won't be able to make it, for which I'm very say the least.

"But on a more positive note: if things keep progressing like this, I hope to make it to the next show on the 17th (Lelystad). So, I will keep you guys posted and see you real soon!

"Last but not least: thank you for all your kind messages! It's comforting to know that so many people care!!!"

AUTUMN recently released the video for its song "Satellites". Watch it below. The track comes off the band's latest effort, "My New Time", which entered the Dutch album chart at position No. 72.

Produced by Arno Krabman at Graveland Studio and mixed by Jochem Jacobs at Split Second Sound Studio, "My New Time" is described as "a powerful, heavy yet melodic album which will impress gothic rock/metal fans all over the world!"
