Autumn Fire was formed in fall 2009 when singer Max Scialdone became the final member the four members were looking for. With a soft melodic and arty yet explosive heavy sound, the band has gained more and more popularity.

Autumn Fire’s first Album titled, “Endless” was a great start for the band. With on-the-edge songs such as “Regret” and the smooth yet ferocious “Promise”, the band had people at shows saying, “woah! Where did these guys come from?!” Autumn Fire is sure to keep you wondering what will happen next and singing along!

A year after playing shows with “Endless”, the group entered into a battle of the bands at the Oneonta Theater and the prize was to open up for the legendary, Blue Oyster Cult. Autumn Fire was chosen as the winner and played a sold out show just before BOC.

Shortly after the Blue Oyster Cult show, Autumn Fire released the second studio album titled, “Amends”. Amends being a bit darker and heavier yet still holding the dreamy and melancholy sound that is true to their art. From the catchy lyrics to the more serious sound of “Amends”, this album gives you everything you’re looking for!
