On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax is the debut full length album by post-hardcore band Alesana. It was originally released on June 6, 2006 by Tragic Hero Records, but when the band joined Fearless Records, it was re-released on March 20, 2007 with two bonus tracks, four live videos, and an interview with the newer label. It holds many analogies to Greek Mythology and the Medieval ages. The title refers to the Greek myth concerning Icarus whose wax wings melted when he tried to reach the sun. .
