With humble beginnings in Baltimore and then solidifying their lineup in Raleigh, North Carolina, the genre-blending quintet called alesana has
come a long way in order to bring you their musical vision and
incendiary live performance. Exploring the heights of love and the lows
of heartbreak and bitterness that often follow, alesana's music strikes a
universal chord with audiences around the world. Fans embrace the
emotional sincerity and undeniable intensity of the music while reveling
in the reckless abandon with which alesana performs. Formed in October
2004 when guitarist/vocalist Shawn Milke, guitarist Patrick Thompson,
vocalist Dennis Lee, bassist Steven Tomany, and drummer Daniel Magnuson,
alesana quickly became a staple of the burgeoning Raleigh post-hardcore
scene. Metal and hardcore fans were drawn to alesana's gut-wrenching
vocals, solid riffs, blasting double bass and intelligent breakdowns.
Progressive fans were drawn to their cascading song structures and deft
control of dynamics, and emo/pop punk fans were drawn to their catchy
hooks and heartfelt lyrics.
