Love Alesana? Well things are about to get exciting if you do, because the band just announced a west coast run of "Ten Frail Years of Vanity and Wax" tour! On the tour, the band will be performing their entire debut LP On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax in its entirety. The tour's opening acts will also include For The Win, Versus, Charlatan, and Vesta Collide.

Shawn Milke , lead vocalist of Alesana, shared saying, "The 10 year anniversary tour for On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax is hitting the west coast!  Let's travel back in time together, to a day where emo bangs, Chelsea hair cuts, and MySpace ruled the planet.  You bring the energy, we'll handle the rest!" 

The tour follows the band's successful first short novel Annabel, which released back in August of 2016 and written by both Shawn Milke and Dennis Lee of Alesana. The novel's story is based off of Alesana's albums The Emptiness, A Place Where The Sun Is Silent, and Confessions

"This story has been a work in progress for nearly seven years," says Shawn. "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." 

Shawn and his sister Melissa narrated a reading of the first chapter of Annabel which can be heard here. They also partnered with director ,Jason Ligon, in order to make the reading a lyric video.
