With a decade of making music under their belt. The Word Alive (Telle Smith, Tony Pizzuti, Zack Hansen and Matt Horn) are looking to start the new decade with a bang!
It’s going to be a completely fresh start with some of their most honest music yet. They want to strip it all back to the raw honesty of the struggles in making music. Introducing their new album MONOMANIA dropping February 21st.
Can’t wait that long? They’ve given us a single too!
It’s the title track from the album and what a teaser it is – from the moment you press play the atmosphere and lighting set the scene perfectly. It really brings across the madness and emotion that the band wants you to feel and is an insight into their everyday struggle to not hide their true selves in their music.
This, however, isn’t the only song they’ve dropped prior to the album’s release. They have also premiered ‘Burning Your World Down’ with The Noise. Best described as an anthem this song immediately gets stuck in your head. Our heads didn’t stop bopping along to it!
As well as these two incredible songs, we have a whole host of tunes awaiting us on the new album. Check out the full tracklist below.
2. ‘NO WAY OUT’
3. ‘SEARCHING FOR GLORY’
4. ‘ANOTHER YEAR IN THE SHADOWS’
5. ‘GREATEST ALMOST’
6. ‘THANK YOU’
7. ‘NUMB LOVE (MISERY II)’
9. ‘BURNING YOUR WORLD DOWN’
10. ‘COMFORT & CHAOS’
11. ‘I’M SORRY YOU’RE SORRY NOW’
12. ‘DEATH IS ONLY THE END IF YOU ASSUME THE STORY IS ABOUT YOU’
