Lights of Alora from Pryor, Oklahoma started in December 2010, actively playing up until 2013 before deciding to go on hiatus. In 2016 after going through hardships and member changes, we regrouped and collected a solid line up which makes up this 5 piece post hardcore outfit we have today.
Drawing influence from bands such as Escape the Fate, A Day to Remember, and Alesana. It shaped Lights of Alora into the aggressive and energetic band we are now. These influences lead up to our first single "Anchors Away" that was released in 2011, and it also signaled the sound that followed the songs for the rest of our EP "Relentless".
With the release of "Relentless" the band gained opportunities to open for such acts as For All Those Sleeping, The Color Morale, Abandon All Ships. and many more, also allowing us to hop on tours with Get Scared. Dr. Acula, & Eyes Set to Kill.
Lights of Alora are currently writing a new EP and its set to release in 2017. The first single "Tell the Wolves I'm Coming Home" is looking to be released early next year.
