North Carolina rock n’ roll veterans Alesana are back and better than ever with Confessions, their first studio full length release in over four years. The album, which is available April 21st on Revival Recordings, is the final installment in a trilogy that has inspired thousands of loyal fans all around the globe.
The Annabel Trilogy began it’s wildly successful run with The Emptiness (Fearless Records) and continued with A Place Where The Sun Is Silent (Epitaph Records). Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe, the story, penned by lyricists Shawn Milke and Dennis Lee, follows the horrific and abstract journey of a love-struck artist and his muse, Annabel. Packed full of surprising twists and memorable characters, the trilogy takes you on an imaginative journey that is delivered through a vehicle of haunting vocals, 3-part guitars, string quartets, and orchestra choirs.
Having toured the nation and the world extensively over the better part of a decade, fans of Alesana, and their storytelling approach to album composition, are chomping at the bit to see how the trilogy concludes. Produced by Shawn Milke and Neil Engle, Confessions promises to deliver all of the elements that have made Alesana a staple of the indie music scene while simultaneously taking steps into unchartered waters. The band has always pushed themselves to take their sounds to new and unexpected heights and their impressive fifth studio full length release promises no less; and the twist at the end of the story will haunt even the most die-hard fans for days.
