The Word Alive Drop New Single From Upcoming Album
The Word Alive have premiered their new track 'Why Am I Like This?' alongside an accompanying music video. The new song comes hot on the heels of the band's announcement of their fifth studio album, Violent Noise, and first single 'Red Clouds', which thematically revisits the band's origins.
Violent Noise is set to be released May 4 via Fearless Records. Digital and physical pre-orders are available now, with each pre-order including an instant download of 'Red Clouds' and 'Why Am I Like This?'.
Vocalist Telle Smith explains that 'Why Am I Like Is?' is about "pursuing something that more than likely you know you shouldn't or that might not be the healthiest choice for you. The last two years I experienced making choices that took me further away from who I wanted to be, and I was living in the moment with no regard for how it would effect me or someone else. It's about finding that person who is kind of the devil on your shoulder, and you want them to tell you what you're doing is ok so you can rationalize it and justify it." Violent Noise was produced and mixed by Matt Good (Asking Alexandria, From First To Last), who also produced the band's last release, Dark Matter.
Pre-order Violent Noise here, out May 4th.
