Courtney Love's "anarchy violinist" returns to the stage and is keeping the spotlight all to herself. With appearances on Leno and Letterman, glossy magazine covers, and guest spots on the albums of such artists as Love, Otep, Billy Corgan, and TV's "Metalocalypse," under her corset strings, Emilie Autumn's devilishly dark lyrics, metal-shredding violin solos, and industrial-strength voice reinvent "gothic" for the masses, and goths have never had so much fun.
Chosen by Interview Magazine as one of their "14 Artists to Watch," the Los Angeles-born starlet's theatrical stage show is a sexy circus of glam-rock burlesque, backed by a scantily-clad girl band known to EA's devoted fans as the Bloody Crumpets. But as the sole composer, performer, and producer of her latest full-length album, the double disc "Opheliac," EA gets personal. Written in the style she calls "Victoriandustrial," this magnificent musical adventure draws upon EA's background as a child-prodigy classical violinist growing up on the stages of concert halls around the world, and combines it with her passion for harsh industrialism, aggressive metal, and all things Vaudeville.
William Roy Francis was born January 8, 1982 in Seattle,Washington. In wiL's younger years he took an interest in drugs and alcohol but after leading police on a high speed car chase (and subsequently spending time in jail), wiL decided it was time to turn his life around. He started playing guitar again as a form of therapy and rediscovered music. He mainly provides vocals for post-hardcore band Aiden but can also play guitar, bass, and piano. wiL has said that William Control is basically the struggles he faces everyday and the battle going on inside of him to use drugs and drink. William Control is classified as Electro/New Wave/Rock. His music tends to be very dark and focused on controversial themes. Aiden bass player Nick Wiggins also plays for William Control.
The name SUICIDE is a constant reminder that unless we kill ourselves, there is no ceiling for what we are capable of.
