The Word Alive
Since 2008, The Word Alive have steadily maintained a course towards the forefront of alternative heavy music and have continued their upward trajectory ever since. The Phoenix-based quartet — Telle Smith [vocals], Zack Hansen [guitars], Tony Pizzuti [guitars], Matt Horn [drums] toss and turn between visceral power and entrancing emotionality encased in swathes of otherworldly electronics. It’s a singular sound that has naturally evolved since their debut record, Deceiver, and continued through their most recently release of Violent Noise. They’ve earned acclaim from the likes of Alternative Press, Revolver, Guitar World, and Modern Drummer and supported I Prevail, Killswitch Engage, A Day To Remember, Motionless In White, among others, and are known for their ability to ignite crowds across the globe. 2018’s Violent Noise represents the culmination of a decade and the unbreakable bond shared by the band and their fans. Telle, Zack, and Tony. Now, over 11 years after forming they continue to show they haven’t lost their spirit, as they’ve celebrated “10 Years Of The Word Alive” across America, Europe and the UK in 2019.
As a thank you to long time fans as they embrace change and continue to push boundaries, they will be pausing working on new music to bring you an unforgettable and highly demanded DECEIVER ENTIRETY TOUR with longtime friends and tour mates Miss May I.
