Over the past couple of years, The Word Alive has gained a global reputation for pushing the boundaries within their genre. But with new sophomore full-length Life Cycles, the Arizona quintet is set to join an elite club of heavy music luminaries ushering in the next evolution of melodic metal. Exploring themes of both personal and musical development, the album marks the moment when The Word Alive took destiny firmly by the reins, determined to eclipse their past accomplishments. The follow-up to acclaimed album Deceiver, the group enlisted red-hot metal producer Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men), reaching a new level of musical complexity and composition. Continuing their worldwide attack, the band kicked off the campaign for Life Cycles with Attack Attack!, tore accross Europe, and into The All Stars Tour this past summer. With a new album packed as solid as their tour schedule, The Word Alive are ready to storm into a bright future.
