The Word Alive

On their fourth full-length album Dark Matter [Fearless Records], The Word Alive amplify every aspect of their signature sound. The lyrics are more personal. The melodies are more engaging. The songs are bigger. Produced by From First To Last guitarist Matt Good, it’s the apex of their sound to date. 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 featured Luke for his work in the band and his mega-popular YouTube covers. Guitar World has spotlighted the interplay between Tony and Zack and their twin attack. 2014 saw Real. land at #4 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, #7 on the Top Independent Albums Chart, and #33 on the Top 200. However, everything paved the way for The Word Alive’s biggest, boldest, and bravest statement in Dark Matter.

ARTIST BIO

Hailing from the hippie-loving beachfront town of Byron Bay, Australia, metalcore outfit Parkway Drive blasted out of their serene surroundings touting a volatile blend of intricate metal riffing, punishing breakdowns, and hardcore’s emotional tension. Named after a rural countryside road, the band was formed in summer 2003 by vocalist Winston McCall, guitarists Luke Kilpatrick and Jeff Ling, drummer Ben Gordon, and bassist Jia O’Connor. They split an EP with like-minded countrymen I Killed the Prom Queen that same year, and later appeared on the local hardcore compilation What We’ve Built. In May 2005, Parkway Drive’s debut EP, Don’t Close Your Eyes, was released on the Sydney-based Resist Records. They continued building a respected name for themselves in the Australian hardcore scene, often opening for Bleeding Through, Shadows Fall, Every Time I Die, Hatebreed, and other American bands who were touring abroad.

For its full-length debut, the band journeyed to the U.S., recording in Massachusetts with producer Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage). Recorded over a two-week period in 2005, Killing with a Smile entered the Australian Independent Chart at number two upon its February 2006 release. The debut album sold extremely well across the country and later saw a North American release through Epitaph Records in August of that year. For its sophomore effort, the band again traveled to Massachusetts to reprise its successful partnership with Dutkiewicz. The metallic Horizons was released by Epitaph in October 2007. In 2010 the band came back with its third full-length effort, Deep Blue, which landed Parkway Drive an ARIA award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album. In 2012 Atlas arrived, a more adventurous and varied album with production assistance by Slayer producer Matt Hyde. Parkway Drive continued to alter their sound, striving for a more varied, decidedly metal approach on their fifth album, 2015’s Ire. ~ Billboard
