Mon, 13 Jan 2014 12:36:21
Metalcore standouts Alesana, who are celebrating 10 years as a unit, are starting off 2014 with a major bang: a tour and an EP!
The band has signed on with Artery Recordings to release The Decade EP on April 1.
Alesana will also embark on "The Decade Tour," which will canvas the U.S. from March 7 through April 6, hitting SxSW, South by So What and Never Say Never Festival.
For this not-to-be-missed tour, presented by Artery and Revival Recordings, Alesana will be joined by Get Scared, Hearts & Hands, Farewell My Love and Megosh.
Frontman Shawn Milke checked in about the flurry of exciting activity and momentum surrounding Alesana, explaining the impetus for The Decade EP and sharing a few hints about what's in store for the future, namely regarding the band's trilogy.
"Hello everyone! As many of you know we are planning on completing our trilogy very soon, but until then, we figured why wait to put out new music? We are proud to announce that we will be releasing an EP through our good friends at Artery Recordings entitled The Decade EP. In honor of Alesana having been a band for 10 years, we decided it was time to take a small break from our storytelling and write some songs about us and our experiences together as a band for the last decade: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the insane. For those of you curious about Annabel, have no fear, she will be back. But for now, let's just crank some good old fashioned rock and f---ing roll! "
We like the sound of that.
