The Word Alive

Synopsis
THE WORD ALIVE RELEASED NEW SONG
Text
Alongside their current European tour, Phoenix, AZ's The Word Alive has premiered a new song called "Misery" today via Impericon. Lead singer Telle Smith describes the high-energy track as another "extension" of Dark Matter, the band's latest studio album which peaked at No. 1 on the iTunes Metal and Rock Charts. 
 
"We wanted to bridge the gap between our newest album Dark Matter and the writing process of what will become our fifth studio album," Smith explains. "It's incredible to know the exact direction we will be exploring with our next record before writing even one song. After Warped Tour, it was clear that we had something special with our newer material, especially songs like 'Trapped', 'Made This Way', and 'Dreamer'. We wanted to morph those songs into something that would be an extension of those three songs in particular. Heavy, ambient, ominous at times, and much more personal than our previous material."

 
The Word Alive are currently touring Europe as direct support to Asking Alexandria before kicking off another European run with Attila, which will run through April 25. Tickets are available at WeAreTheWordAlive.com.
