The Word Alive is getting fans excited about their new album coming as they celebrate the 10th anniversary of lead singer Telle Smith joining the band. As they tour in support of Killswitch Engage and Hatebreed, The Word Alive just released a new single called "Red Clouds" from their upcoming album, Violent Noise.
This is the band's fifth studio album, their first four all being Top 100 album hits in the United States. Their past three releases were all Top 10 hits on the U.S. Hard Rock albums chart, with Real as their biggest success at fourth and their 2016 album Dark Matter hitting the seventh spot.
Violent Noise is set to go on sale on May 4 and the band announced the release on March 29. The first single, "Red Clouds," starts off with a piano playing before the band kicks in with their more traditional metal sound. The new album does feature a slightly different lineup as bassist Daniel Shapiro and drummer Luke Holland both left the band after the release of Dark Matter.
Hatebreed is on tour with Killswitch Engage and Hatebreed this summer and AXS has tickets available for a number of their shows. The three metal bands will play in Cleveland on May 2 at the Agora Theatre (buy tickets here).
