THE WORD ALIVE - Telle Smith (Vocals), Tony Pizzuti (Guitar), Zack Hansen (Guitar), Daniel Shapiro (Bass), Luke Holland (Drums) - On their fourth full-length Dark Matter, produced by Matt Good (From First To Last), The Word Alive amplify every aspect of their signature sound. The lyrics are more personal, the melodies are more engaging, and the songs are bigger. The Phoenix heavy alternative quintet began transmitting their message in 2009. 2010's full-length Deceiver solidified them as a fan favorite as they tirelessly toured alongside the likes of Killswitch Engage, The Devil Wears Prada, A Day To Remember, Motionless In White, and more - in addition to numerous stints on the Vans Warped Tour. Alternative Press and Revolver have sung their praises, Modern Drummer has featured Luke for his work in the band and mega-popular YouTube covers, Guitar World has spotlighted the interplay between Tony and Zack and their twin attack, and the band has graced the cover of Outburn Magazine. 2014 saw the band's latest release 'REAL.' land at #4 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart and #33 on the Billboard Top 200. However, everything paved the way for The Word Alive's biggest, boldest, and bravest statement in 'Dark Matter.'

New album 'Dark Matter' is available online and in stores now! Get tickets to the OVERDOSE TOUR at and
