On their fourth full-length album Dark Matter [Fearless Records], The Word Alive amplify every aspect of their signature sound.
The lyrics are more personal. The melodies are more engaging. The songs are bigger. Produced by From First To Last guitarist Matt Good, it’s the apex of their sound to date. The Phoenix heavy alternative quintet began transmitting their message in 2009. 2010’s full-length Deceiver solidified them as a fan favorite as they tirelessly toured alongside the likes of Killswitch Engage, The Devil Wears Prada, A Day To Remember, Motionless In White, and more—in addition to numerous stints on the Vans Warped Tour. Alternative Press and Revolver have sung their praises. Modern Drummer featured Luke for his work in the band and his mega-popular YouTube covers. Guitar World has spotlighted the interplay between Tony and Zack and their twin attack. 2014 saw Real. land at #4 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, #7 on the Top Independent Albums Chart, and #33 on the Top 200. However, everything paved the way for The Word Alive’s biggest, boldest, and bravest statement in Dark Matter.
