September Mourning’s debut EP (Volume I) and comic book (A Murder of Reapers) tells an epic tale of “heartbreak, loss, pain, joy, love, redemption, but most of all, courage…” while the comic book chronicles the first chapter of her story. Produced by Sahaj Ticotin and Howard Benson, September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and X-Men’s Storm had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as Motionless In White, Disturbed, and Muse.
“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains. “Music is the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”
The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Men comics and went on to form Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic form, to accompany, and enhance the musical message.
Having performed at large festivals like Rock on the Range and Download Festival and shared the stage with acts like Marilyn Manson and Avatar, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she 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.” (Source)
Stalwart Detroit Rockers Kaleido have been pounding away as an independent Rock band for the last 6 years, releasing 2 EPs and an album independently, while touring constantly. They’ve opened for notable bands like Seether, Halestorm, Rob Zombie and Evanescence; and they kicked off 2018 with two performances on the Shiprocked cruise. Recently they played a handful of dates on the final Vans Warped tour. The trials and tribulations of being Rock N’ Roll survivors in an ever-changing Music business has made them stronger and tougher, and that is reflected in their muscular new single “My Enemy”, which was produced by Johnny K (3 Doors Down, Disturbed, Pop Evil, Megadeth, Adelitas Way) and will be released on 8/24.
Kaleido – comprised of Christina Chriss (vocals), Joey Fava (drums), Ronnie Rosolino (Guitar), and Cody Morales (bass) is a fresh, modern day Detroit incarnation of Rock N’ Roll. At their core, Kaleido is a straight-up, piss-and-vinegar rock band. Their authentic and memorable songs are highlighted by an explosive live show, both of which have gained them respect on the live music circuit.
As they’ve grown, the Media has taken notice and accolades have come in: Kaleido was a featured performer on WDIV-TV (NBC) Detroit 2017 Annual Fireworks Telecast, and has also been featured on local PBS show Metro Arts and CBS 62’s local music coverage. They were named Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Weekly in both 2013 & 2014, and won two Detroit Music Awards in 2015 for “Outstanding Rock/Pop Group” and “Outstanding Rock Recording” for their second independent EP ‘Unbreakable’. Kaleido was nominated again in 2017 for their album “Experience” and won “Outstanding Heavy Rock Group”.
Their “Experience” album helped grow their fan base both in the US and abroad, debuting @ #11 on Soundscan Top New Artists Albums and #37 on the Top Current Rock Albums chart. The album was tapped as “New and Noteworthy” @ iTunes and Amazon Music and spawned the Active Rock charting “Die Tryin’ – which made it into the Loudwire Video “Battle Royale” Hall of Fame by remaining at #1 for 5 straight weeks.
