Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Autumns are an American alternative rock band based in Los Angeles, California, comprising Matthew Kelly (vocals, guitar), Frankie Koroshec (guitar), Ken Tighe (guitar), Dustin Morgan (bass) and Steve Elkins (drums).

Formed by childhood friends Koroshec and Kelly the band were signed to Risk Records in 1997 and released an EP, Suicide at Strell Park, and album, The Angel Pool, the same year.

The Angel Pool brought the band to the attention of the Cocteau Twins' Simon Raymonde and they decamped to London to record their second album In the Russet Gold of This Vain Hour with Raymonde at the controls.

...Russet Gold looked set to break the band to a wider audience, drawing interest from MTV and influential Los Angeles based radio station KROQ, but shortly after its release Risk collapsed and the band found themselves without a label.

This was not a situation that bothered the group overmuch (indeed Koroshec later stated, "It was for the best. That level of attention made us uncomfortable. And it wasn't the record to blow up. We were still searching and experimenting" ). In the following years The Autumns released a four-song recording of 1950s inspired love songs on pink vinyl (Le Carillon) and the covers EP Covers and also scored the film Searching for Angela Shelton, revelling in the artistic freedom that being unsigned provided.

The band released their self-titled third album in 2004 on Pseudopod Records in America and Bella Union in the UK.

Lead singer Matthew Kelly recently contributed vocals to the upcoming The Sound of Animals Fighting album, Lover, the Lord Has Left Us....
