September Mourning Premiere Animated Video For “Overdose”

September Mourning have premiered an animated video for their new song “Overdose” via Alternative Press. This track is from the band’s new EP “Vol. III,” which will be released on December 13.

Emily Lazar said the following:

“‘Overdose’ is a song about falling in love with someone or something so hard that it consumes you and that the process of being consumed is actually a beautiful thing. In reference to another person, it mentions a certain uncertainty in the second verse of that other person’s view on life, love and having the courage to be deep in it. The song reminds us that our views of life and love are our own and may not necessarily be shared by everyone, and that’s OK. If you stay true to your heart and beliefs, those with similar views find each other.

The video is an extension of the same animated universe we created with ‘Hiding From Heaven’ based on the September Mourning graphic novel. It takes place after Claire has finished playing the video game in the arcade. As Claire accepts September’s defeat in the ‘Hiding From Heaven’ video game, a mystical flash of light appears and transports her to a world within the game. The world is Mortem, the land of the dead. Upon her arrival, she meets a shadowy figure that sets her on a quest into the Hotel Sanctuary to find four travelers and three artifacts.”

September Mourning Premiere Animated Video For “Hiding From Heaven”

September Mourning have premiered an animated video for their new song “Hiding From Heaven” via Loudwire. This track is from the band’s new EP “Vol. III,” which will be released on December 13.

Emily Lazar said the following about the song:

“‘Hiding From Heaven’ speaks about our inner insecurities… how we all yearn for greatness – but sometimes the person that stands in the way of our success the most is ourselves. I believe we all have self-doubt to a certain degree. ‘Hiding From Heaven’ is about overcoming that doubt – it’s the greatest skill we can learn. The song is about having belief in yourself and practicing self-love so we can become our own hero.”

She also added the following about the video:

“When we set out to make a video for ‘Hiding From Heaven,’ we strived for a visual presentation that would represent the project in a creative manner. September Mourning is a trans-media project, meaning its concept is forged by a storyline that permeates throughout different mediums of art. One of those is the comic book aspect, whose storyline is a combative tale of life versus death. We took that idea and expanded the universe through animation.”

“Both Rich (Riven) and I are avid fans of not only current but vintage gaming. We took the idea of having one of our main characters, Claire, who is blind to the world of the living but can see reapers and the dead, playing a video game with reaper characters. It’s a fun nod to the characters in the story. We modeled the game after vintage combat games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Our very talented animator Brad Uyeda is a fan of the September Mourning universe we created and wanted to help us expand. Frame by frame we brought the ideas to life.”

September Mourning Premiere New Song “Glass Animals”

September Mourning have premiered a new song titled “Glass Animals.” Emily Lazar commented:

”’Glass Animals’ is about the fragmented soul. It’s about the realization that we are all broken. Something or someone has broken us and within that broken state we ultimately find the strength to survive. Musically, it’s a little bit of a tribute to one of our favorite bands: The Deftones. The song ties into the comic book as well…. Hannah is a broken soul who, through the help of September and Claire, finds the strength to face her personal demons and live again.”

September Mourning Premiere “Til You See Heaven” Music Video

September Mourning have premiered a new video for their song “Til You See Heaven,” via Huff Post. This song is from the band’s latest album “Volume II.”

Emily Lazar commented:

“I had to put on my pointe shoes again, which I haven’t done in years. It was very scary for me, but I wanted to do it because it did scare me. I wanted to put it out there because it is scary to put something like out there that I haven’t done for a long time. I’m such a perfectionist. I used to be like, if it didn’t look perfect with ballet, if it didn’t turn out perfect or my turns weren’t perfect, I didn’t even want to show it. But now, it’s like an art piece so it’s not supposed to be perfect. It’s like watching September collect a soul in a different way. She’s collecting this guy’s soul. It’s almost like a memory. It’s almost like her remembering this feeling of collecting this soul and this is how it felt, not that she went around dancing and collecting souls. The emotion that it evokes in her is how she felt and the physicality of the dancing is how she remembers it, how she chooses to remember how the soul is collected. It’s a very artistic, off the beaten path video. I wanted to do it because I thought it would be really cool.”

September Mourning Premiere “Skin And Bones” Lyric Video

September Mourning have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Skin And Bones,” via Loudwire. This song is from the band’s new album, “Volume II,” which will be released on July 29.

Emily Lazar said the following:

“‘Skin And Bones’ is about self awareness and personal strength against those who bully or negatively affect you. People often judge you by the way you look, and they don’t take the time to find out who you are. When that type of negativity beats you down psychologically to the point your ego is severely wounded, it’s really hard to fight back. This song is very much about being strong enough within the core of who you are so that those things can never affect you.”

September Mourning To Release New Album “Volume II” In July

September Mourning will be releasing their new album, “Volume II,” on July 29. The band also plan to release their second comic book, “The Hand Of Fate,” on that day as well.


Emily Lazar said the following:

“‘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.”

“Volume II” Track Listing:

01. “The Collection”
02. “Angels To Dust”
03. “Eye Of the Storm”
04. “Before The Fall”
