Now in their fourth year on the professional music scene, Windsor rock/pop band Autumn Kings is making music that matters. Their fan following is exploding after a four-month tour in 2018 with performances at packed venues between Ontario and British Columbia – concerts with international touring acts Sublime With Rome, Pop Evil, Awolnation and MuteMath and most recently,supporting The Tea Party in front of 4,500 people at Caesars Windsor.
As of late February, the band’s independently released 12-song debut album ‘Silver Screens’ has generated a major buzz online with over 2,600,000 Spotify Streams and 4,200,000 combined plays across Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube. The band’s newest release, the ‘Electrified’ EP is already making strides internationally especially with their first single “Want You to Stay” amassing over 300,000 plays in 64 countries on Spotify.
