Although the band's members first began playing together in Iraq, Maryland, the band officially formed in October 2004 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The name of the band was directly derived from Alice-anna St. which they lived on when playing in Baltimore, MD. Alice-anna St.(Alesana) is located in Fells Point, a neighborhood in Baltimore. Alesana was the first band to join Tragic Hero Records in 2005, and released their debut EP, Try This With Your Eyes Closed, in June of that year. They toured in the United States, including an appearance at the Cornerstone Festival, in 2006, and added a new drummer and an additional guitarist/vocalist to their lineup. They followed with a full-length, On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax, in the summer of 2006. Many of the songs on the album take inspiration from Greek mythology. In late 2006, they signed on to Fearless Records, which re-released their LP in March 2007 to mixed reviews.2007 saw the group play the entire Warped Tour. They are now set to play the whole Warped Tour 2008. In early 2008, On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax charted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, peaking at #44. Alesana is done recording their new record titled, "Where Myth Fades To Legend". The album was released on June 3, 2008. Where Myth Fades To Legend is also the title of their headlining tour with Sky Eats Airplane, Our Last Night, Lovehatehero, and The Chariot. Shane Crump was recently revealed in the intro to Alesana's 4th video blog on purevolume to be a vocalist on the new album. Their new album, 'Where Myth Fades To Legend' was leaked on popular torrent sites on May 25, 2008 and released officially on June 3, 2008. All the female vocals done on the bands albums are done by guitarist Shawn Milke's sister. Alesana is touring as of November, and will head to the east side which includes New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. They will be performing at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey, December 3, 2008. Alesana will be performing with A Static Lullaby, Greeley Estates, Jamies Elsewhere, and many more.
As with their previous album, the majority of the songs are related to fables and the members’ “Favorite Stories” compiled from The Brother’s Grimm. Except for “As You Wish”, that is based on the story The Princess Bride. The only song that isn’t based on anything is “All Night Dance Parties In The Underground Palace.” It was written by Shawn Milke, for his fiance, Naima. The album was produced by Steve Evetts and recorded in Los Angeles, California. The song “Seduction” is said to be the first single from Where Myth Fades To Legend, as well as the music video, which was recorded late summer ‘08. The track “A Most Profound Quiet” has been released on their MySpace page. The Single “Seduction” was leaked onto the internet with the title “Subscription” on the Warped Tour 2008 compilation. According to guitarist/vocalist Shawn Milke, “This is the Part Where People Scream” is influenced by the television show Heroes. “Obsession is Such an Ugly Word” features vocals from the entire band.
Since the release of the album, the band has gone through several line-up changes. On the 2008 Warped Tour, Shane Crump left, and the band was forced to play without bass. They were a bit off for a few days, until Jake Campbell (Twelve Gauge Valentine guitarist) became a temporary fill in. Just recently, they have announced Shane has come back, but Adam has left, and Jake is now the permanent rhythm guitarist.
Alesana headed out with Escape the Fate and A Skylit Drive in support of Chiodos and Silverstein starting on the 10th October. They have also been named along with Nine Inch Nails, Alice in Chains and The Bloodhound Gang to tour Australia with the Soundwave 2009 festival.
This spring in 2009 Alesana heads out with Drop Dead Gorgeous, Fear Before, I Set My Friends On Fire, and Fall From Grace.
On January 20, 2009 the music video for Seduction was officially released.
