Alesana have just unveiled their video for 'Lullaby for the Crucified,' a track off their recently released 'A Place Where the Sun Is Silent' album. The video pays homage to Dante's poem and like in the literary work, a disoriented young man wakes in the woods, and assailed by beasts, (a stripper temptress, the manipulative fiend, forbidden fruit) he fails to reach salvation. In this modernized version, young Dante visits a road side strip club and a cheap motel.

Set against a backdrop of thunderous beats and soaring melodic guitars, the video pays homage to Dante's poem. Like in the literary work, a disoriented young man wakes in the woods, and assailed by beasts, (a stripper temptress, the manipulative fiend, forbidden fruit) he fails to reach salvation. In this modernized version, young Dante visits a road side strip club and a cheap motel.

Alesana's singer Shawn Milke explains, "Once again, thanks in large part to the inventive mind of director Stephen Penta, we unveil for you a visual interpretation of one of our literature infused ballads. Press play and wander into a place where the virtuous hide in fear, a place where the sun is silent... lose yourself in the maze of mirrors that is, Alesana."
