Note! The concert has been cancelled
Thursday 11.9.2014 @ Helsinki, Nosturi
Alesana have cancelled their forthcoming anniversary tour in Finland, Russia, Ukraine & Belarus due to the political tensions in the region. Hence, the band's show at Nosturi, Helsinki on September 11th has been cancelled as well. As no new show dates have been confirmed yet, bought tickets can be returned to Tiketti at the latest on September 12th. We apologise for the inconvenience!
"To all of our fans in Finland, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus:
We are sad but we must regretfully announce the postponement of our trip overseas to play for our fans in Finland, Russia, and Ukraine. Politically, things have been tense in some of those regions and in light of the tragedy of Flight MH17 the members of Alesana, along with our families and loved ones, have decided it is in our best interest to postpone the dates until travel proves to be less inhibitive of our safety. We love our fans and cannot wait to play for each and every one of you, but circumstances have forced us to consider our well-being and the peace of mind of our families. We hope to see you very soon!"
Positive Mental Attitude. This is the mantra that is not only a driving force for Raleigh, North Carolina based Alesana, but also a way of life. Celebrating ten years as a band, the pop-metal sextet is always in high spirits and accustomed to playing their hearts out every night when on the road. Countless US tours, several trips around the world, and six major releases later, Alesana is living proof that hard work and dedication dreams can go a long, long way.
Newly inked to Raleigh based Revival Recordings, the band is slated to release the conclusion to their Annabel trilogy in the fall of 2014. The yet-to-named album will be produced by Alesana’s own Shawn Milke and engineered by Neil Engle at Adelaide Recording Studios in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Released in December of 2013, the stand-alone single Fatima Rusalka progressed the band’s conceptual trilogy and served as a bridge to their forthcoming full length release, the final piece of a three-part story. The song does what can only be expected of the storytelling rock machine which is to draw from past influences while incorporating new possibilities, dynamics, and sonic exploration.
Having spent time on Tragic Hero Records, Fearless Records, and Epitaph Records, Alesana’s entire catalogue of Try This With Your Eyes Closed, On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax, Where Myth Fades To Legend, The Emptiness, and A Place Where The Sun Is Silent has charted on the Billboard Top 200.
Alesana’s latest release The Decade EP is now available on iTunes via Artery Recordings.
