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. Telle on the yet not named record:
„This album is the MOST important album to date for us, there is no question about that. But I feel we rose to the challenge and I hope you’ll embrace this new era, we’ll need your support more than ever.“
Aside from obvious line-up changes, the band also signed to a new label – Thriller Records.
“We couldn’t be happier to be reunited with the person who first believed in The Word Alive, Bob Becker and the team he’s built at Thriller Records. After his time at Fearless he hit the refresh button, and came back just as passionate and determined as ever. That is exactly where we were as a band, and it felt poetic almost to finish what we started.” Says lead vocalist, Telle Smith about the signing. “There’s something about honesty and passion that can drive even a young team to great heights and we fully believe that the honesty and passion the Thriller team exude will help The Word Alive to reach higher than ever.”
