Band Tour With FLAW And SMILE EMPTY SOUL

The genesis of SEPTEMBER MOURNING started in a dark New York basement, where a young girl discovered her father's old comic book collection and quickly became enraptured by the stories, especially the characters and arcs in the Batman series. "Those resonated with me the most" says band leader and creative driving force Emily Lazar (AKA September). "The Killing Joke is still my favorite comic book". The stories and characters helped turn Lazar into a life-long artist across several mediums – including ballet, story-telling, visual art, and music. She has combined those various talents into a living and breathing, graphic-novel-come-to-life with her band of Reapers in SEPTEMBER MOURNING. With the release of their new single and video "Unholy", they continue to forge ahead with their aural and visual extravaganza.

"Unholy" was produced by Sahaj Ticotin (MOTLEY CRUE The Dirt Soundtrack, STARSET, SEVENDUST, STITCHED UP HEART) and Nick Scott (ASKING ALEXANDRIA, BLESS THE FALL, I SEE STARS), with mixing by Chris Lord-Alge (LINKIN PARK, SKILLET, OF MICE AND MEN). The song's scorching guitar riffs and sing-song chorus breakdowns tell a tale of a love so strong that it is fatally addicting. "Unholy" raises the band's artistry to a new level and will make for an anthemic addition to an already compelling live show. The band's striking visuals have helped propel them into a national touring act that has performed at such notable events as Download (UK), Rock on the Range (Columbus, OH), Aftershock (Sacramento, CA), Comicpalooza (Houston, TX), Anime Midwest (Chicago, IL), and many more. The band has toured with ROB ZOMBIE and (HED) PE in 2019, and is currently on tour with FLAW before seguing to the SMILE EMPTY SOUL tour in late August. The band will be touring extensively throughout the rest of the year into 2020.

Creating personas and telling stories through music has become reality from those early childhood days of absorbing the comics she found - as Lazar and comic book legend Marc Silvestri have developed and released their own comics A Murder of Reapers and The Hand of Fate (collectively known as Volume I). These books help tell the tale of September, a human/reaper hybrid with no memory of her past. Empowered with supernatural gifts, she is driven to protect humanity from Fate and his Reapers. The books were published by Top Cow/Image Comics and come to life on stage.

Guitarist Rich Juzwick explains how the band came together in it's current from: "The music scene in Los Angeles, although large, is still the equivalent of social circles in high school. You have your circle of friends - but they know other people that know still more people and eventually you'll run into each other. I met Kyle first, back in 2010 when I was in GEMINI SYNDROME. He grew up in Chicago with Aaron (GEMINI SYNDROME singer) and we met when that band started. Emily and I met through mutual friends a few years later. When I decided to leave GEMINI SYNDROME, she approached me about helping her with SEPTEMBER MOURNING. We met Pat a few years ago while on tour in Pittsburgh, as his band opened for SEPTEMBER MOURNING a few times. We spoke after those shows, and through that connection He decided to relocate to Los Angeles and became part of the Reapers".

SEPTEMBER MOURNING released a full-length album in 2016 (Volume 2) whose lead single "Eye of the Storm" has more than 1.6 million plays on Spotify, and more than 2 million over all. The band released 2 singles in 2018: "Empire" and "Glass Animals". They will be releasing additional singles and an EP in 2019, with more new music to follow in the 1st quarter of 2020.
