Father Influences Alesana Frontman’s Appreciation For Concept Albums


Alesana vocalist-guitarist Shawn Milke spoke with Noisecreep about the band’s new album ‘A Place Where The Sun Is Silent’, out now on Epitaph Records. Asked about whether he’s had an appreciation for concept albums, Shawn said, “I have. A lot of that comes from my dad. He taught me so much about music, about what was happening beyond just what we heard. He knew the stories and what things really meant and he just gave me a full appreciation of how powerful music can be when it reaches for things. Especially playing things like Beatles records. Those had so much going on and were so complex and remain really influential to me.”
