The Word Alive has joined the Thriller Records Family. Alongside this news, the band has released their refreshing new single “Nocturnal Future” accompanied by a sharp music video directed by Jake Johnston (Stand Atlantic, Polyphia.)
“We couldn’t be happier to be reunited with the person who first believed in The Word Alive, Bob Becker and the team he’s built at Thriller Records. After his time at Fearless he hit the refresh button, and came back just as passionate and determined as ever. That is exactly where we were as a band, and it felt poetic almost to finish what we started,” says lead vocalist, Telle Smith about the signing. “There’s something about honesty and passion that can drive even a young team to great heights and we fully believe that the honesty and passion the Thriller team exude will help The Word Alive to reach higher than ever.”
The Word Alive hones in on their bold sound with “Nocturnal Future.” Featuring exhilarating melodies that are laced together with catchy hooks. The band formulates a profound dynamic as the track plays out.
“‘Nocturnal Future’ felt like the first song our fans needed to hear after taking the longest break to make a record of our career. I wanted it to be something that captured all the things The Word Alive loves into one song. A meaningful message and vocal delivery, energetic and dynamic instrumentation as well as a big drop that started from a dream I had of all places,” says Smith about the new song. “I think of ‘Nocturnal Future’ as a fresh start, a balancing of the scales creatively and most of all, a song I can’t wait to play live.”
