Alesana - 'Annabel' Book & "Ten Frail Years of Vanity and Wax" Tour

Pop-metal band Alesana announced that they will release a book entitled Annabel on August 31st. The short novel will focus on the story that their three concept albums are based around. You can hear the first chapter read by vocalist/guitarist Shawn Milke and his sister Melissa below. Director Jason Ligon created a lyric video to debut with the reading.

Milke said, "this story has been a work in progress for nearly seven years. 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".

Pre-order Annabel HERE and you will also receive a special edition of the Alesana album Confessions, which includes the single "Fatima Rusalka" which has previously only been released digitally as a single and one new unreleased song.

They also announced an upcoming "Ten Frail Years of Vanity and Wax" tour. They plan to perform their debut LP On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax in its entirety. Oh Sleeper, Famous Last Words, and Artwork will join. Find tickets HERE.
