“We are very excited to announce the Chaos Is A Ladder tour!” says vocalist/guitarist Shawn Milke (who is also the owner of Revival Recordings). “As we are busy writing the conclusion to our Annabel trilogy, it will be nice to take a break and play some rock shows for our fans, including songs that span our entire career from Try This With Your Eyes Closed all the way through The Decade EP. Joining us will be our good friends in Megosh, The Funeral Portrait, and The Things They Carried. September can not get here soon enough! See you at the show!”

Positive Mental Attitude. This is the mantra that is not only a driving force for Raleigh, North Carolina based Alesana, but also a way of life. Celebrating ten years as a band, the pop-metal sextet is always in high spirits and accustomed to playing their hearts out every night when on the road. Countless US tours, several trips around the world, and six major releases later, Alesana is living proof that hard work and dedication dreams can go a long, long way.
Newly inked to Raleigh based Revival Recordings, the band is slated to release the conclusion to their Annabel trilogy in the fall of 2014. The yet-to-named album will be produced by Alesana’s own Shawn Milke and engineered by Neil Engle at Adelaide Recording Studios in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Released in December of 2013, the stand-alone single Fatima Rusalka progressed the band’s conceptual trilogy and served as a bridge to their forthcoming full length release, the final piece of a three-part story. The song does what can only be expected of the storytelling rock machine which is to draw from past influences while incorporating new possibilities, dynamics, and sonic exploration.
Having spent time on Tragic Hero Records, Fearless Records, and Epitaph Records, Alesana’s entire catalogue of Try This With Your Eyes Closed, On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax, Where Myth Fades To Legend, The Emptiness, and A Place Where The Sun Is Silent has charted on the Billboard Top 200.
Alesana’s latest release The Decade EP is now available on iTunes via Artery Recordings.
