September Mourning is a hard rock band, which incorporates a transmedia dark culture project created by Emily Lazar and Marc Silvestri. The conceptual project was formed by frontwoman, vocalist, and screamer, Emily Lazar in New York in 2009. The concept narrative created by Lazar and incorporated in the band and their performances, centers around the fictional story of a human-grim reaper hybrid named September, as she navigates the worlds of the living and the dead. The character's human-side possesses the empathy to give some human souls a second chance. The story is presented on different media platforms, including music, comic books, and live concerts. The comic books are published by Top Cow Productions Image Comics.

May 20, 2019 - Midwest Music Mayhem is proud to announce that Epic Music Showcase 2019 will feature Iowa's SAUL as the headlining rock band. Supporting bands will include St. Louis' Discrepancies and Inner Outlines, Columbia, MO's The Many Colored Death and Hannibal, MO's very own NOWAKE. SAUL's single, "Brother" has recently spent time on the Billboard Top 40 Maistream Rock Charts and also at the number 1 spot on SiriusXM Octane's Active Rock Charts. The band made Revolver's Most Likely to Breakout 2019 List at #3 and has been selling out shows in the midwest region since releasing their latest album, "AEONS." They are set to have a busy summer playing shows all over the US plus shows in the UK alongside several top-selling acts like Killswitch Engage, In This Moment, Clutch and many more.
This year's Epic show will take place on August 17th, 2019 at the Hannibal POPS Club on Highway 61 just south of Hannibal, MO. Admission is $15 and includes free parking. Food and drink will be sold on site. All ages are welcome to attend with ID required for 21+ armband. Gates will open at 4pm and the show starts at 5pm. Proceeds from the show will be donated to National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
The Iowa based hard rock band SAUL is the result of a profound passion for music shared by brothers Blake and Zach Bedsaul. They always knew music would be their life and worked tirelessly to develop a sound that pushes the boundaries of modern rock music. SAUL places a great amount of focus on writing songs that mean something. Forming their sonic inspiration listening to bands like Tool, Pearl Jam, Nothing More, and Tesseract, the band went through a few lineup changes after high school, but the sound was starting to take shape. Blake and Zach had a vision and kept writing and working tirelessly until they brought that vision to life. That vision is a sound that is both modern and precise, but also chaotic and turbulent.
SAUL has now rounded out its lineup to include William McIlravy (Bass guitar/Backup Vocals), Joe Nichols (Drums), Blake Bedsaul (Lead Vocals), and Zach Bedsaul (Lead Guitar/Backup Vocals). Everyone shares the same passion and the music reflects their chemistry as a band.
SAUL is already gaining massive amounts of attention in their home state of Iowa and beyond. Bringing in new fans with every performance, you can hear the soul of the music and get lost in its timeless, aggressive, and haunting melodies.
In regards to their spring 2019 debut studio effort, AEONS: "SAUL isn’t holding anything back. The first single is an emotional roller coaster about death and the struggles of dealing with loss. "Brother” is the embodiment of the band and its message. It is how music should be. It's real, raw, aggressive and satiated with intent.
Front-man Blake Bedsaul states the following in regards to the new single, “Lyrically, this song defines what I should have said to my brother in his last moments. This song cuts deep for me and It’s a constant reminder that life is fleeting. Tell the people in your life that you love them.” On January 24th, 2019 SAUL plans to announce their arrival by not just tapping you on the shoulder, but punching you in the face with their lead single, "Brother".
Quincy, IL's 105.9 The Grizz plays "Brother" on a regular rotation, so listen for it as you prepare for an EPIC evening on August 17th!
