Concert review The Word Alive with Coyotes, Polar and Annisokay. Contributed by Alex Bock

June 1, 2016

  Wiesbaden, Schlachthof, May 23rd, 2016 This time I made a bit of a longer trip to cover a show for you and I chose the Schlachthof in Wiesbaden. The venue was recently rebuilt. It reopened at the end of 2015. Everything is still shiny and new and it’s a nice venue of the small and cozy kind. Just two months after the release of their recent record ‘Dark Matter’ The Word Alive went out on European Tour that included, besides a few German dates, also Slam Dunk Festival dates in the UK. By the time you read this, the tour is over and they’re back in the US relaxing and probably rehearsing for the upcoming Warped Tour Cycle, which the band will be on again. But back to the Wiesbaden show. Telle and Dani took their time to sit down with us and talk about the tour, the record, Warped Tour and much more. Check the interview out here: Show started around 7 pm. The Word Alive had three support bands, two of them [Read More]

The Word Alive announce dates for The Dark Matter European Tour

February 25, 2016

  The Word Alive have just announced dates for their Dark Matter Tour in Europe this May. Telle comments, “We couldn’t be more excited to announce that we’ll be bringing our Dark Matter Tour overseas.

Trapped is about that feeling, and trying to crawl out of the hole that can be our heads.” – Telle Check out a stream of the song here:   Everyone preordering the album digitally, which will be released March 18th, will get an instant download of the new single.
