Alesana To Release ‘Annabel’ Book, Plan “On Frail Wings Of Vanity” Tour With Oh, Sleeper, Etc.


Alesana will release a book titled “Annabel‘ on August 31st. The short novel fleshes out the story featured across the band’s three concept albums. Vocalist/guitarist Shawn Milke commented:

“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.”
