They toured Japan, England and Germany but decided to take a break in 2018. Shortly after, Erlandsson founded the group AUTUMN’S CHILD . Their self titled debut album was released in January 2019 through AOR Heaven feat.

“Angel’s Gate” now marks AUTMUN’S CHILD’s return. This time they have defined their craft even more and the album is again filled with great songs and classy musicianship.

There are homages throughout the album to Whitesnake, AOR, Supertramp, Gary Moore,10cc, Manfred Mann and ELO but most of all it sounds like nothing else in today’s music scene.
