Oh, how the mighty have fallen but not Alesana. They are still going strong on a west coast tour to commemorate their debut LP On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax.
From their debut album to Emptiness, A Place Where The Sun Is Silent, and Confessions, the pop-metal sextet have a streamlined vision on where they want to go lyrically and musically.
Every song is a sonic journey inspired by the collective minds of lead vocalist/guitarist, Shawn Milke and harsh vocalist, Dennis Lee. Their lyrics and arrangements emerge from darkness to engage your senses and help you overcome your fears. All bands writes music, Alesena writes novels. The tour is motivated by the conjuring of Annabel.
“This story has been a work in progress for nearly seven years,” says Milke. “It began when Dennis and I decided to tell our own story through the albums of Alesana. It eventually grew into an album trilogy and now, finally, a short novel. Creating this abstract universe and telling the story of Annabel has been, in every way possible, both challenging and rewarding. It is an accomplishment that still stuns me to this day. Thank you to everyone who has joined us on this journey.”
We have the pleasure of connecting with Alesena on their third stop in San Francisco, CA. We look forward to being a part of their story. Stay tuned for the interview on Rockstardreams.com
