While in Sacramento, CA last night (March 3), thieves ended up stealing about $10,000 worth of items from The Word Alive. Tyler “Telle” Smith tweeted the following about that:
The Word Alive have premiered a new song titled “Searching For Glory.” This track is from the band’s new album “Monomania,” which will be released on February 21.
The Word Alive have premiered a new video for their new song “No Way Out.” This track is from the band’s new album “Monomania,” which will be released on February 21. Telle Smith commented:
“‘No Way Out‘ doesn’t hold back, as it instantly pulls you into the darkest day of my life. It’s a story I needed to tell for myself just as much as someone else may need to hear it. The worst thing a person can do is lose themselves completely, and that’s exactly what happened to me.”
The Word Alive have premiered a new video for their new song “Monomania.” This is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on February 21.
Telle Smith commented:
“With ‘Monomania,’ I wanted to capture the emotional roller coaster we go through as we continually kill our true selves battling the ‘madness’ we feel as we struggle with who we are, wondering at times if there’s any point to all of this.
Sometimes, we’re so desperate to be heard that we get lost attempting to fit in or to stand out. It’s fucking hard learning what feels like hard lessons over and over. We fail to take ownership of our thoughts and actions, pulling us further away from facing who we are. You only really overcome that by trusting in yourself, because that’s the only way you can break the cycle.”
“When you listen to our new music, I hope you have a better understanding of our entire career. Maybe you can see the whole story and realize that we’re not different from you. We’ve been through it all, but we’re always trying to learn, grow, and leave something behind we feel will help people. This is our purest work. This is everything we’ve been through in the last couple of years. It’s the best conclusion of the last 10 years and the best opening to the next 10.”

Tyler “Telle” Smith commented:
“‘Maybe I’m running from myself / But blaming someone else.’ These are the first lyrics you’ll hear from our brand new song ‘Burning Your World Down‘ because it’s time for all of us to take ownership of our thoughts and actions. Have you ever felt like you were bending pieces of who you are to fit someone else’s mold? We wanted to break the mold we feel we were forced to adhere to creatively.
‘Who is The Word Alive?’ We had to answer that question for ourselves before we made our new album and we feel that this song is a great statement out of the gate. We are The Word Alive — and we just had to be ourselves for the first time ever. This song represents a breaking point. It’s about taking things into your own hands and letting the passion that ultimately flows within all of us be released unapologetically. If you feel like you’re not living up to who or what you know you’re capable of being, this song can be your anthem. It will be ours.”
“We wanted to share ‘Burning Your World Down‘ at the end of 2019 because it represents both where we have been but prepares listeners for what will be an amazing year for our band and our fans in 2020 when we unveil our sixth studio album. We didn’t chase where we were, what we’ve made previously, what our peers had done or are doing. We stopped listening to all the outside noise and we just focused on writing the most honest songs we could.
We pushed ourselves, pushed our boundaries and we will certainly push the boundaries of what people perceive as The Word Alive. We wrote an album that will define The Word Alive and this is just the beginning. Welcome to the new chapter of our story.”
