The Champion: September Mourning
September Mourning is a transmedia dark culture project created by Emily Lazar and Marc Silvestri.
The project centers on the human-reaper hybrid September (portrayed on stage by Lazar), as she navigates the world of the living and the world of the dead. As a half-human, September feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate.
The story is presented on different media platforms, including music, comic books, and live concerts. The comic books are produced with Top Cow Productions. According to Lazar, ““It’s a story line that has a musical component to it. An artistic component to it. The story line is what holds it all together. The music is like the icing on the cake. It’s very important of course, but it’s the vehicle to tell the story.”
In March 2016, September Mourning announced that the band had been signed to Sumerian Records, and released the music video for “Eye of the Storm”. A full-length album, Volume II, was released on July 29th, 2016, along with the second issue of the comic. Lazar stated that “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”. To promote the release, an animated lyric video for a new song, “Skin And Bones”, was premiered on Loudwire in July 2016.
