Pit Stories: Alesana Tells of a New Twist On The Wall of Death
We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Shawn Milke, singer/guitarist for Alesana, shares a story from the road involving an interesting twist on the wall of death:
"The fog pouring from the stage was thicker than that of a graveyard. On stage, we felt like we had been though a war; torn clothing, bloody lips, bruised faces. Gazing out at the crowd we could see that they were broken, but not beaten. It was time. The big guns were in place and ready to be fired. But this time around, we had a challenge for the soldiers. 'I want a wall of death!' screams our fearless front man Dennis. No fear. No mercy. This is no time for children to run scared to their mommys and daddys. This is a time to bring it and bring it hard. To prove our bite is as ferocious as our bark, we send one of our own down into the crowd and to the very back of the wall of death. The challenge is simple: hit him, catch him, beat him before he reaches the stage. We dare you. On the count of three. One...two...three...the stage is set, the night explodes. One of the best pits we've ever had!"
Alesana recently wrapped up their headlining The Emptiness Tour before embarking on a European tour that they're playing now. The band will return to the US and tour as part of the Vans Warped Tour this summer.
