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 eleven 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 seven major releases later, Alesana is living proof that hard work and dedication to dreams can go a long, long way. Calling Revival Recordings their home, the band released the conclusion to their Annabel Trilogy in April 2015 with Confessions. Released in December of 2013, the stand-alone single Fatima Rusalka progressed the band’s conceptual trilogy en route to its conclusion with Confessions. The song does what has come to 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, consisting of Try This With Your Eyes Closed, On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax, Where Myth Fades To Legend, The Emptiness, A Place Where The Sun Is Silent, and Confessions, has charted on the Billboard Top 200. In summer 2016, Alesana released a special edition of Confessions including two new tracks along with a novella, entitled Annabel, which inspired The Annabel Triology. The album is available on all digital outlets now and the novella is available for purchase on Amazon Kindle now.
In 2017, Alesana began working on the ulitmate fan project which they called Origins. Filled with hours worth of behind the scenes and never before seen footage, demos, and a brand new EP The Lost Chapters, Origins was born as a visual history of the past thirteen years of the band. In early 2018, Alesana released The Lost Chapters EP digitally. Origins bundles are currently available on the Revival Recordings shop page. The Lost Chapters EP is available to stream on all digital platforms and to purchase on iTunes now!
Across The White Water Tower is a 4 piece metalcore band from Rockland County, NY formed in 2016.
ATWWT is known for their high energy, animated, rambunctious live performances created by frontman Matt Sosa. In 2019, their debut EP “Phantom Pains” was produced by Chris Wisemen (of Currents/Shadow Of Intent) who also fully produced their first full length record “If You Died Right Now, What Would They Remember?” released 3/15/22.
To start the year off the band performed on a sold out tour with I Set My Friends On Fire in January and February. Shortly after their record’s release the band headed straight on tour with one of their favorite bands, Attack! Attack! opening the package along with Until I Wake and amassed over half a million streams and over five hundred physical units early on. From there, they were invited onto iMatter Festival (July 31) in upstate NY with Anberlin & The Devil Wears Prada and then embarked on their next tour with I Set My Friends On Fire again which ran right into their next run with Famous Last Words & Dark Divine. After a short recess, the band opened for Like Moths To Flames & Cane Hill in the midwest for 2 shows which lead right into their second Attack! Attack! tour alongside Outline In Color.
Following spending the majority of the year on tour with their favorite bands, Water Tower has been writing their sophomore effort and releasing music videos & content and is showing no signs of slowing down in 2023.
