Raleigh-based rock band Alesana has released a stream for “The Coward” from their brand new EP The Lost Chapters which is out now.
When discussing the new track and EP, vocalist Shawn Milke stated: “The Lost Chapters fills in some blanks for fans who enjoy the small details of our concepts. There are some tunes here that introduce new possibilities as to where our stories could have gone, while others expand on some already existing points. Musically and sonically each song feels like the era in which they were born and really makes The Lost Chapters feel like you are traveling back in time. ‘The Coward’ is, lyrically and narratively, my favorite of the bunch because it introduces a chapter in The Emptiness that I loved and was disappointed to cut originally. It takes place in the immediate aftermath of ‘The Murderer.”
