September Mourning Game for Battle in Animated ‘Hiding From Heaven’ Video – Premiere
Step right up, Player One! It's time to do battle and September Mourning have the soundtrack for you with their new video for "Hiding From Heaven," premiering exclusively here at Loudwire.
September Mourning's Emily Lazar tells us, “When we set out to make a video for 'Hiding From Heaven,' we strived for a visual presentation that would represent the project in a creative manner. September Mourning is a trans-media project, meaning its concept is forged by a storyline that permeates throughout different mediums of art. One of those is the comic book aspect, whose storyline is a combative tale of life versus death. We took that idea and expanded the universe through animation."
She continued, "Both Rich (Riven) and I are avid fans of not only current but vintage gaming. We took the idea of having one of our main characters, Claire, who is blind to the world of the living but can see reapers and the dead, playing a video game with reaper characters. It’s a fun nod to the characters in the story. We modeled the game after vintage combat games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Our very talented animator Brad Uyeda is a fan of the September Mourning universe we created and wanted to help us expand. Frame by frame we brought the ideas to life."
As for the empowering and anthemic track, she reveals, "'Hiding From Heaven' speaks about our inner insecurities... how we all yearn for greatness - but sometimes the person that stands in the way of our success the most is ourselves. I believe we all have self-doubt to a certain degree. 'Hiding From Heaven' is about overcoming that doubt – it’s the greatest skill we can learn. The song is about having belief in yourself and practicing self-love so we can become our own hero."
"Hiding From Heaven" will be included on the band's forthcoming EP, Vol. III, which is set to drop on Dec. 13.
