The Word Alive have premiered a new song titled “Burning Your World Down.” You can check that out below:
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.”
