Frontiers Records announced the signing of Last Autumn's Dream self-titled debut album for the European release on 19 January 2004.
LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM is a new melodic rock super-group featuring famed Swedish singer Mikael Erlandsson together with former FAIR WARNING guitarist Andy Malecek plus the three EUROPE cohorts Mic Michaeli (on keyboards), John Leven (on bass) and Ian Haugland (on drums). The idea of this band came about when Mikael's record company in Japan proposed him to join forces with the fantastic guitar player Andy Malecek who enjoyed great success in the German hard rock band Fair Warning. Mikael and Andy were both hooked by the idea and a plan for the album began to grow. Mikael's production companies in Sweden: XTC Productions/Studio in Stockholm and Sunday Music in Gothenburg also supported the idea and they turned to Ian Haugland, Mic Michaeli and John Levén from Europe and asked if they were interested. After listening to Mikael and Andy’s new, strong material, they all decided to join in and the band Last Autumn’s Dream was born. Andy has been an active member of Last Autumn's Dream since 2002 and has performed, recorded and toured with them through several albums.2003 – Last Autumn's Dream
