September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as David Bowie, Motionless in White, KISS, Paramore and My Chemical Romance.
"For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece," September explains. "Music is a piece of 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 both Image and Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic novel form, to accompany, and enhance the storyline and musical message.
September Mourning carries positive passions into its music, which is often operatic, but also completely rock 'n' roll in all its majestic glory.
Having toured with Marilyn Manson, 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."
Kaleido - comprised of Christina Chriss (vocals), Joey Fava (drums), Ronnie Rosolino (rhythm guitar), Cody Morales (bass) and Zach Bolling (lead guitar) - is a fresh, modern day Detroit incarnation of rock n’ roll. Their 2017 debut full-length album "EXPERIENCE" is straight up rock with flourishes of pop, punk & funk undertones.
Their authentic and memorable songs are highlighted by an explosive live show, both of which quickly gained them notoriety in the Detroit music scene.
Kaleido was named Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Weekly two years in a row, won three Detroit Music Awards, and has since taken the show on the road and become a touring machine. Supporting the likes of Seether on the Poison The Parish Tour, Living Colour & Alien Ant Farm, they've also lit up many festival stages on Van's Warped Tour, Rockstar Uproar Festival, Summerfest & CMJ Music Marathon. They have also opened for Aerosmith, Slash, Kid Rock, The Offspring, Sammy Hagar, Evanescence, Halestorm, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Rob Zombie, Weezer, Coheed & Cambria, Twenty One Pilots, Andrew WK and countless others. Kaleido has also branched out internationally, completing their first tour of the United Kingdom & Ireland with Alien Ant Farm and HeD PE.
The first single released from "EXPERIENCE", titled "Love & War" (co-written and featuring Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm), won an unprecedented 27 nights on 89x The New Rock Alternative People's Choice, and was consequently retired as the most winning song of all time on the station.
Another single from the album, "Die Tryin'" was retired into the Loudwire hall of fame after winning the fan voted 'Battle Royale' five weeks in a row. The music video has been added to 9 platforms including all Pittsburgh Pirates TV promos in 2017, Footlocker's In-Store video system (1,835 stores in 23 countries), YouTube's New Rock Playlist, Clubcom Network (3900 health clubs & Brunswick Bowling Centers) to name a few.
Starting 2018 off with a SPLASH playing the Shiprocked cruise with Stone Sour, In This Moment, Seether, Black Label Society, P.O.D., Beartooth, The band made a big impression and also performed a Tom Petty tribute with the all-star band The Stowaways featuring Bumblefoot, members of Papa Roach, Fuel and more.
They are currently writing for their next release and preparing for touring the entirety of 2018.

Coming from other bands and solo projects, AndEver was formed in 2011 by Lindsay Hail and Steve Almos. With a vision in mind to share personal trials and testimony through music and lead the “lost” to Jesus Christ. The duo began working on recording their first album entitled Pathways in the Spring of 2012, and performing their music in acoustic clubs and writing the key elements to complete their first album. By 2014, AndEver finished tracking the songs that would make the album. Released in September of 2014, AndEver began working on establishing its fan base by getting their music aired on local San Diego radio shows such as Loud n Local spotlight on ROCK105.3 and Homegrown Hour hosted by Cathryn Beeks (formerly of KPRI 102.1). In 2015, Lindsay and Steve began focusing on playing in local worship teams and leading worship for Celebrate Recovery, as their search for finding a drummer and bassist launched. In the beginning of 2016, Steve Almos was reunited with longtime friend Richard “SikRik” Thomason, immediately joined AndEver as the band's bassist. Rick, brings in serious low end attack,confidence and has great stage presence. In 2016, AndEver played the Relay for Life Cancer Benefit, SOMA San Diego on a local showcase, and is opening for Sonata Arctica and direct support for Xasthur (acoustic) in December. The band is currently writing its follow-up material to their debut album, Pathways. They plan to schedule preproduction for the beginning of 2017.
