SEPTEMBER MOURNING: Unholy Friday, 26 July 2019 21:18 by madseason
September Mourning - Unholy

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.

"'The Killing Joke' is still my favorite comic book" says band leader and creative driving force Emily Lazar (AKA September). 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, MEYTAL) and Nick Scott (Asking Alexandria, Bless the Fall, I See Stars), with mixing by Chris Lord-Alge (Linkin Park, Gren Day, 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 is currently on tour with Flaw before seguing to the Smile Empty Soul tour in late August.
