“Toxic people unfortunately have a way of disguising themselves in the beginning, only to show their true colors down the line. There’s hope in this tormented story though and we hope you find yours.” – The Word Alive
The Word Alive have a brand new track out, their first release since “Overdose”.
According to the band, “Misery” bridges the gap between The Word Alive’s Dark Matter album and the process of writing for their next album, which will be the band’s fifth studio album. On social media, they described the sound they were wanting to go toward as “heavy, ambient, ominous at times”, and much more personal than previous material, with “Misery” being about toxic relationships.
By way of sound, “Misery” is heavily distorted from the introduction as well as feeling weighed down. It speaks of refusing gut instincts, while keeping on hoping things get better – but they don’t.
“Don’t blame me, I’m not the same me
No sign of what I was”
“Misery” is brilliantly heavy in confrontation and deception, questioning what exactly is going on here in something that has turned out completely different to how it began.
We’re curious to hear more from The Word Alive as it comes. Check out “Misery”.
