Emilie Autumn

Biography

World-class violinist. Actress. Author. Fashion Icon. Famously Bipolar. The list goes on, but one thing is certain: We're talking about Emilie Autumn.

With appearances on Leno and Letterman as part of Courtney Love's band, glossy magazine covers throughout the world, and guest spots on albums by such artists as Love, Otep, Billy Corgan, and TV's "Metalocalypse", not to mention her starring role in the film phenomenon that is Darren Lynn Bousman's "The Devil's Carnival" under her corset strings, Emilie Autumn's devilishly dark lyrics, metal-shredding violin solos, and industrial strength voice reinvent "gothic" for the masses. More akin to a Broadway musical than a standard rock performance, the Los Angeles-born starlet's highly theatrical show is a sexy circus of glam-rock burlesque, backed by scantily-clad female performers known to her devoted fans as the Bloody Crumpets. Featuring EA's signature electric violin pyrotechnics, heartbreakingly lush orchestrations, hardcore beats, and menacing lyrics growled with enough intensity to make your hair stand on end, the resulting noise is a harpsichord-heavy romp through Victorian asylums where screaming is allowed and girls always get revenge.

With the release of her latest album "Fight Like A Girl", Emilie Autumn pulls her listeners ever deeper into the realm of "The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls", a fantastical alternate reality described in her literary work, an illustrated novel weighing in at nearly five pounds. The title track of the album, "Fight Like A Girl", kicks off the adventure with an anthem for the underdog, calling upon women to realize 8. We Want Them Young
they are in fact 51% of the population, and to take back their power. From there, the struggle of insane asylum inmates is enacted with Emilie taking on the the voices of varying characters, ending in the ultimate fight to the death and the encouraging and universal message of what it takes to transform from victim to victorious. Part musical theatre, part industrial rock, part historical horror story, this album, will take you on a roller coaster ride you won't want to end, but most of all, whether you're a girl or not, it will leave you empowered.

"Fight Like A Girl", which is best listened to in order of the track listing, is the soundtrack to a movie that hasn't been made yet, but rest assured, it will be. You don't have to be a girl to fight like one, as EA proves is definitely Nine Inch Nails not a bad thing.
