Epitaph Records signs Alesana
According to organizers of the Soundwave Fest in Australia, Alesana has left Fearless Records and joined the Epitaph Records roster. Alesana had been scheduled to perform at Soundwave in early-2011, but have apparently cancelled, prompting Soundwave officials to post the following: "Alesana have regretfully had to pull out of their international touring commitments for the first half of 2011. "The band have just had a rather difficult change of labels and we are happy to announce that they have found a new home with the good people at Epitaph. However, as part of their exit from their last label involved an additional U.S. tour with ETF [Escape The Fate?] in support of their last record to help their old label recoup costs. "We understand the circumstances, appreciate the fact that the band were still willing to fulfil their Australian obligations despite the massive setback it would have caused their career. We look forward to having them back with a brand new album mid-year." Thus far, neither the band, Fearless, nor Epitaph has commented publicly on the matter.
