Autumn Burning was formed in July of 2010 with the goal of taking the various musical backgrounds of its five members and melting them into one sound. What became of this endeavor is powerful and catchy original rock music that can be enjoyed by the everyday mainstream listener to the progressive rock enthusiast to the bonified metal head. The influences of rock, metal, funk, pop, and progressive can be heard throughout the band's latest self-titled release, along with the 2011 release titled EPisode 1.
The band's songwriting and performance fronted by the powerful vocals of Mike Morehouse and shredding guitar of Jared Blazer launched them into the Ohio music scene beginning in early 2011. Since the band's breakout they have shared the stage with many of Ohio's top local acts, including, XFACTOR1, Noise Auction, Sever, Wixor, Mind Pulp, Battlestar, 8LB Pressure, and Curse Icon, as well as many regional and national acts on both tour stops and festivals, such as, Fuel, Zach Myers (Shinedown), Puddle of Mudd, Saliva, We Came As Romans, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Bobaflex, Straight Line Stitch, The Devil Wears Prada, Attack Attack, iPhonic, Uncrowned, Texas in July, Park Lane, Pale, Ionia, and His Name Was Yesterday. These performances coupled with airplay on 99.7 The Blitz have helped the band to build a strong following, which they only expect to grow stronger as the band's sound continues to evolve.
Autumn Burning recently released their first full length album, self-titled Autumn Burning, in January of 2014. This album shows much mainstream promise and a clear direction of where the band is heading musically. Keep your eyes and ears open as Autumn Burning shows promise of a band to see big things from in 2014 and beyond.
