Is this the best rock album of 2021?
'In its meticulously composed, breathtaking and sometimes charmingly retro way, this might be the best rock record of 2021' - so says the New York Music Daily!! Wow!! High praise indeed!
We have been overwhelmed by the response to Graveyard Star - thank you so very much for buying the album and for your absolutely amazing comments - we have loved reading them.
Here’s What’s Happening in the world of Mostly Autumn
Thanks so much to Dave Roberts and all the volunteers at the Cambridge Rock Festival. It was great to play there - we loved it, it's such a friendly festival and thanks to everyone who came too - it's important - thank you for supporting live music.
It was also a brilliant feeling to be back over in NL and Belgium - fantastic gigs!
We were a little apprehensive about travelling there after Brexit but (with a lot of planning) it all went smoothly.
Great to see so many at the gigs - thank you to you all,
Sorry to report the Lake Garden festival has had to be postponed until next year - sad sign of the times.
Next weekend ( Saturday 25th June) it's the Citadel - so pleased it has re-opened, it's a great venue. Then our home town gig at
The Crescent, York on Sunday 26th June - always has a special atmosphere, and who can resist a day in beautiful York!!
Graveyard Star Reviews
It's getting close to the magical Christmas period so if you need a bit of Christmas spirit - here's the link to download 'For Everyone at Christmastime' by Mostly Autumn
Hello everybody - hope all is well?
We just wanted to inform you of a very exciting project that is firmly in the pipeline. In association with York St John University, Mostly Autumn had the privilege of recording a live session in Abbey Road studio 2. We will pass on more details in due course and, needless to say, we all had the most incredible experience...in the footsteps of the giants of music.

Hello everybody - Hope you are all well
Well, it’s been a long time in the making but here we are and here it is… Graveyard Star.
The album is a deep, heartfelt reflection of how we were feeling through 2020 / 2021, a documentation of living through the pandemic. Although a lot of the sadness and otherworldliness was personal to us, I’m sure many will relate to the content. There was simply no other inspiration present, only to write and put into music life as we felt it. We truly believe that the song-to-song strength of this work could be our finest to date, it has been 18 months in the making and the longest studio schedule we have ever experienced. The icing on the cake comes from Troy Donockley of Nightwish and Chris Leslie of Fairport Convention who guest beautifully on the album.
We sincerely hope you enjoy it and thank you in advance for your support in these strange and uncertain times.
All the best
Cheers - Bryan Josh and all at Mostly Autumn

Hope you're all well, we've been busy scheduling dates in for this year which we'll announce very soon.
Unfortunately, after much thought and deliberation we are re-scheduling the March NL and German dates - new dates to be announced.
We are so sorry about this but we felt we had no choice in the current climate of such a high infection rate both here and abroad.
Hopefully things will improve dramatically very soon.
