The Word Alive

The Word Alive Premiere “Nocturnal Future” Music Video


A music video for the new single from Arizonan alternative metalcore group The Word Alive has arrived online. A video directed by Jake Johnston for that song can be found below. The song is thought to herald the coming arrival of the band’s seventh studio album, more details for which are expected in the not too distant future.

Speaking of this single, frontman Tyler “Telle” Smith offered:

“‘Nocturnal Future‘ is meant to be unexpected, and from the moment it starts I think you feel a new energy in the music we haven’t captured before. I wanted to encapsulate all of the things our fans have loved into one song, intricate guitars, flashy yet tasteful drums, meaningful lyrics and melodies you’ll want to sing along too.

Lyrically, it’s a call to each of us to try to do more in a world seemingly hell bent on destroying itself. By the end of the song we want you to have pictured yourself at our show losing your mind, hopefully we’ll see you soon!”
