The Word Alive share new single “Nocturnal Future”

November 17, 2022

The Word Alive are back! Two years after the release of their latest album ‘Monomania” the band released a new track today. “Nocturnal Future” is the first single without former guitarist Tony Pizzuti and drummer Matt Horn, which departed from the band about a year ago. Vocalist Telle Smith on the new song: „‚Nocturnal Future‘ is meant to be unexpected, and from the moment it starts I think you feel a new energy in the music we haven’t captured before. I wanted to encapsulate all of the things our fans have loved into one song, intricate guitars, flashy yet tasteful drums, meaningful lyrics and melodies you’ll want to sing along too. Lyrically, it’s a call to each of us to try to do more in a world seemingly hell bent on destroying itself. By the end of the song we want you to have pictured yourself at our show losing your mind, hopefully we’ll see you soon!“ Over the past months, the band has been working on album number seven, which can be expected in 2023.
