The Word Alive Stream Teaser For New Single

Now that some time has passed, the band is preparing to unleash the second single from the album. The new song is titled “Broken Circuit,” and you can listen to a short clip of it by taking a look below the …

They recently started to perform a new song live, titled “Play The Victim,” and while it was only a small taste of something new it was a welcomed change.

After months of teasing, the band finally …

Under The Gun sent photographer, Corbin Alvae, to the Started From The Bottom Tour at The Crofoot in Pontiac, MI.

Well, hey! I’m back again and ready to chit chat about what was called the ‘Started From The Bottom Tour.’ One thing I can say about this tour is that it was super stacked with tons of talent that I personally have listened to for awhile now. The location couldn’t have been any better, as it was at one of my favorite hometown venues, The Crofoot.

MOSH: The Word Alive Debut “Life Cycles” Video

UTG friends The Word Alive have released the official video for their latest single, “Life Cycles.”

There are a million ways to go about making a music video, especially if the song you’re working with can be interpreted in as many ways as the music of The Word Alive. If you had to sum up their work in one word, that word would be “hope,” and that is exactly what permeates the mind and thoughts of listeners whenever their music is heard. “Life Cycles” is no different, boasting a passionate plea to chase what you believe in or risk living …
