Comic books and new music from Lights is a pair that seemingly goes hand in hand, which is why we're still freaking out over the announcement of Lights' new project, Skin & Earth.
Check out all the details of this new album and comic book series below!
If you're a huge comic book fan, then you'll be happy to know that the digital intro issue of Skin & Earth will be hitting the internet in May, with Skin & Earth hitting your local comic book store on July 12 through Dynamite Entertainment.
Dynamite Entertainment have released some amazing comic book series including A Game of Thrones, Army of Darkness and Terminator.
“In recent years, the worlds of comic books and music have come together to produce some of the most exciting and immersive books on stands,” says Dynamite CEO and publisher, Nick Barrucci. “To have the opportunity to work with such a talented and dedicated musician who is both writing and drawing the series herself will be a truly unique treat for both her fans and ours.”
This comic book series is unlike any other though, because new music will accompany each issue until Skin & Earth, Lights' fourth album, will be released through Warner Bros. Records.
“I feel my whole life has lead up to a project like this. It's a complete convergence of everything I love – music, comics, post-apocalyptic romance, crystals, wine and powerful ladies, all perfectly entwined. It'll be by far my most care-free and fierce album yet. I think now, more than ever, people need a reason to listen to a whole record, and this is mine,” said Lights.
Skin & Earth stars En, a reflection of Lights herself, as she struggles to find hope in a hopeless world. Caught between romance and cults, gods and mortals, En is led down a dark path by new friends/lovers into a twisted fantasy world, forcing her to dig within and find the strength to overcome.
