Long-running Dutch gothic metal outfit Autumn released their fifth studio album, Cold Comfort, back in November on Metal Blade Records. Today, mxdwn brings you a premiere stream of “Truth Be Told (Exhale),” the eighth track from the aforementioned album. Check out the stream after the jump.
Their third release via Metal Blade, Cold Comfort serves as Autumn’s most mature, musically layered record to date. With production by Erik-Jan Dodd, the group’s longtime live sound engineer, the album features a tastefully vintage sound mixed with the classic gothic metal sound for which Autumn has become known.
“If there’s anyone who knows what we’re all about and more importantly: what we could potentially be all about, it’s E-J,” said guitarist Mats Van der Valk of Dodd’s production skill.

In support of Cold Comfort’s release, Autumn will be hitting the road for a German tour starting at the end of this month.
“We’ve grown fond of these cities during previous tours, have always been welcomed with heartfelt smiles by awesome audiences. We’re very much looking forward to meeting up with fans and friends, old and new, as we hit the stage for the first German shows of the Cold Comfort campaign,” said Valk of the upcoming tour.
