Yes, you read that right, and for anyone who doesn't recognize the name, Shawn Milke is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for Alesana AND President of A&R and Director of Creative Production of Revival Recordings! That's on top of guesting on band's singles, his band Tempting Paris fronted by his sister, 307 Artist Management, his original band that's reuniting this summer, not to mention he's also a family man! Ian still can't believe that he made time to be on Ian Hates Music!

You'll hear for sure that Ian is blown away during this conversation with Shawn. I'll let Ian go over why before he introduces Shawn, but remember that Ian is a huge fan of the people he brings on the show to share with you. So this conversation definitely affects Ian and his speech, hahaha. That's what happens when you're so passionate about music. You'll hear that during this conversation.

You've heard Ian throughout numerous shows talk Alesana as well as the quality of the bands on Revival Recordings (see past episodes for The Things They Carried and Alteras to name a couple). Make sure to support Shawn in his many endeavors as well as Revival Recordings!

After the conversation with Shawn, Ian goes through more scene news, new music, etc, but the episode will be slightly more brief because Ian will be at Warped Tour! So look forward to a full recap of Ian's time at Warped in next week's show! Vanna, Red Handed Denial, Emarosa, Crown The Empire, Take The Fall, and even more are discussed!
