The brainchild of Emily Lazar (aka “September Mourning”) and acclaimed American comic book artist and publisher Marc Silvestri (X-Men, Witchblade, The Darkness), September Mourning’s Volume II picks up where 2015’s self-released EP Volume I left off.
Like it’s predecessor, Volume II will be accompanied by the second issue of September Mourning’s comic book series on Top Cow Productions.
“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece. Music is the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole,” explains Lazar.
“Volume II is a continuation of the first step in our journey which began with our self released EP, Volume I and A Murder of Reapers, the first issue of our comic book. Volume II follows our hero, September Mourning’s tale throughout the second issue of the comic book entitled, The Hand of Fate. Both forms of media intertwine to create a musical and visual story mosaic for your eyes and ears. Although September’s character is fictional, both the emotional landscape of the music and the message behind her lyric come from a very vulnerable place inside of me. In this album, I intertwined these supernatural characters with my own very real, relatable thoughts and feelings. There are pieces of myself magnified in every dynamic shift and bombastic hook in this album and you feel that when you listen. The world that’s created promises you an epic ride.”
Having performed at large festivals like Rock on the Range and Download Festival and shared the stage with acts like Marilyn Manson, Otep and Avatar, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which Lazar calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.”
September Mourning will tour consistently worldwide throughout 2016 and into 2017 in support of the new album.
