The Word Alive have been hard at work putting together their fifth LP, a follow up to their 2016 release Dark Matter. While we have no definite release date yet, Telle took to Twitter to give us a little more insight behind at least one of the songs we can see on LP5.
The band confirmed at the end of August that they were back in the studio recording for LP5, once again enlisting the help of Matt Good to oversee the recording process.
"We're very excited about this album, since it is the 1st album we will be recording with a full vision of the future for The Word Alive," the band said in their Facebook post. "We are building off of something amazing and we feel we have found a defined sound that will continue to grow throughout the years to come."
Fans have been eagerly awaiting more news on the new album, anxious to see the direction and growth TWA have accomplished over the past year.
"I know all of you will want to know what it sounds like, but that day will have to wait."
Frontman Telle Smith took to Twitter to give fans a little more insight behind one of the songs we can expect to hear on LP5, a song inspired by Linkin Park's Chester Bennington.
Just listened to the song that's on our new record I wrote the day Chester passed. It's special, and maybe my favorite song on the album.— TELLE (@tellesmith) September 17, 2017
I want to carry the torch he instilled in so many through his honest lyrics. I've never related to a person more.— TELLE (@tellesmith) September 17, 2017
I wanted to honor him with continuing what he was about, I think that is all he wanted was to spread love and how real he was.— TELLE (@tellesmith) September 17, 2017
He didn't hide his problems he faced them for years through his songs. THAT is fighting. I hope he is at peace now.— TELLE (@tellesmith) September 17, 2017
