“This song is like a vision of yourself getting into a car crash in slow motion. You’re helpless and nobody can save you but yourself… But it’s too late. Is it a vision? Or is it inevitable.” - Telle Smith, TWA
Earlier this spring, the band premiered "New Reality" on Octane and it quickly became a fan favorite; garnering loud audience participation from the crowd on tour. Previously, The Word Alive closed out 2022 with single "Nocturnal Future," which gained notable editorial playlist support from All New Metal and Crash Course amongst others. "Slow Burn" can be found on The Word Alive's forthcoming record, Hard Reset due out August 25 via Thriller Records.
" There will be talks of returning to our roots, blending eras of The Word Alive and of course, evolution. As you embark on this next chapter with us, we hope you’ll find something worthy of connection. Whether it helps you overcome, forget, remember, embrace, or even escape… We hope you’ll enjoy the seventh chapter of our story, and remember.. We are The Word Alive, all of us."
