The Word Alive

Guitarist Zack Hansen Has ‘Stepped Away’ From The Word Alive


The Word Alive guitarist/programmer/vocalist Zack Hansen has taken a leave of absence from the band, issuing the below statement today, May 30th, on the matter:

“As of today — with respect to my family, friends and fans I will be stepping away from The Word Alive to handle some personal issues and to take the time necessary to focus on myself. I know in the long run this is what’s best for me and TWA. I ask for your patience, understanding and privacy at this time. Thank you for all of the support.”

There’s no word yet on a potential replacement. The band will once again be out with Asking Alexandria and Memphis May Fire this fall, on a trek that will see Archers opening.
