10150685_10154001504060128_1526523532553053935_nThe Word Alive’s critically acclaimed new album REAL. is officially available today. The album is available in stores and iTunes, which includes the exclusive bonus track “Pull Us Out Of The Grave.”

“The day is finally here when people all over the world can hear our new album REAL. We really believe in what we created and I hope you’ll enjoy your copy! See you on Warped Tour at the Monster Energy Stage!” – Telle Smith, Lead Vocals

With Revolver Magazine stating that, “The Word Alive have perfected the sound they’ve crafted since their formation in 2008”, the Phoenix, AZ metalcore veterans showcase their impressive technical musicianship and strong songwriting throughout the 12 track lineup on REAL

…”a shock-and-awe barrage of blast beats, blazing guitars and perhaps most crucially, a formidable array of razor-sharp hooks.” – Alternative Press 

In anticipation for release day, the band teamed up with Fuse.Tv to stream the new album in its entirety and premiered their powerful new song “Never Forget” with Revolver. The song and its lyric video are an homage to Suicide Silence’s Mitch Lucker and includes photos of family and friends that have passed away submitted by fans. In continued support of “Never Forget,” Alternative Press premiered a special drum-through of the track by drummer Luke Holland, who is nominated for ‘Best Drummer’ in the Alternative Press Music Awards. Fans can vote for Luke HERE and check out his drum-through video below.

Touring in support of the new album, The Word Alive kick off their summer-long stint on the Vans Warped Tour 2014 this Friday, June 13th in Houston, TX at Reliant Park.

THE WORD ALIVE – Telle Smith (vocals), Zack Hansen (guitar), Tony Pizzuti (guitar), Daniel Shapiro (bass), Luke Holland (drums)

Since forming in 2008, The Word Alive have built that sort of trust with their diehard fan base – the sort of trust that gains you followers not just for a fleeting moment, but for a lifetime. So, it’s only fitting that the Phoenix, AZ quintet’s third full-length album for Fearless Records bears the title of REAL. Over the course of two full-length albums and two EPs, The Word Alive have risen through the ranks to become modern heavy music elite. They’ve toured with everybody from Killswitch Engage to A Day To Remember in addition to gracing the stage on Warped Tour multiple times, including a full run on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour. They’ve garnered loyal press support from the likes of Revolver and Alternative Press, to musician magazines Modern Drummer and Guitar World, as well as strong brand partnerships with Monster Energy, DW Drums and Ibanez. Respected equally by their peers and fans alike for their impressive technical musical abilities and goosebump-inducing live show that has gathered force and new fans with every gig, the band have worked hard to position REAL. to be the album that truly sees them breaking through.
