THE WORD ALIVE — Since 2008, The Word Alive have steadily maintained a course towards the forefront of alternative music and continue the upward trajectory with their fifth studio album Violent Noise. The Phoenix-based trio— Telle Smith [vocals], Zack Hansen [guitars], Tony Pizzuti [guitars] and Matt Horn [drums] —tosses and turns between visceral metallic power and entrancing emotionality encased in swathes of otherworldly electronics. It’s a singular sound that has naturally evolved since Deceiver [2010] and through Life Cycles [2012], Real. [2014], and Dark Matter [2016]. They’ve earned acclaim from the likes of Alternative Press, Revolver, Guitar World, and Modern Drummer and supported I Prevail, Killswitch Engage, A Day To Remember, Motionless In White, among others, and are known for their ability to ignite crowds across the globe. 2018’s Violent Noise represents the culmination of a decade and the unbreakable bond shared by Telle, Zack, and Tony. They reteamed with the producer behind their last offering Matt Good [Asking Alexandria, From First To Last] and followed a spirit unafraid to experiment. By holding nothing back, The Word Alive’s connection rings out louder than ever before on Violent Noise. “The most distracting noise in life is the one that comes from your head,” Telle explains. “We all battle with self-doubt, insecurities, and trust. This record is about the balance. There’s light and dark. Nevertheless, you always have control. I want to show everybody that. I’m proof.”
