The future matters the most. By always looking ahead, The Word Alive spurn genre distinctions and urge alternative music forward through the seamless integration of cinematic electronic fits and undeniable melodies into hard-hitting heaviness.
This year, the Phoenix quartet—Telle Smith [vocals], Tony Pizzuti [guitar, vocals], Zack Hansen [guitar, vocals], and Matt Horn [drums]—leap ahead yet again.
Since emerging in 2009, their first decade comprised Deceiver [2010], Life Cycles [2012], Real. [2014], and Dark Matter [2016], reaching a high watermark on Violent Noise in 2018. Bringing their total streams past 100 million, the latter included “Why Am I Like This?” [9.7 million Spotify streams] and “Red Clouds” [4.7 million Spotify streams] in addition to garnering acclaim from the likes of New Noise who asserted, “Their excellent and engaging Violent Noise has all the hallmarks of a band at the peak of its powers.” After a triumphant decade anniversary tour, the group once again set their sights on the future cast in fire on the 2019 single “Burning Your World Down.” Produced by Erik Ron [Panic! At The Disco, Godsmack], it teeters between synth swells, gut-punching riffs, and a hypnotic hook, igniting a new era for the band and setting the stage for their sixth full-length—coming in 2020.
