THE WORD ALIVE To Release 'Monomania' Album In February
January 11, 2020
THE WORD ALIVE will release its new new album, "Monomania", on February 21 via Fearless Records. The disc was produced by Eric Ron (PANIC! AT THE DISCO, GODSMACK).
The official music video for the "Monomania" title track can be seen below.
"With 'Monomania', I wanted to capture the emotional roller coaster we go through as we continually kill our true selves battling the 'madness' we feel as we struggle with who we are, wondering at times if there's any point to all of this," says vocalist Telle Smith. "Sometimes, we're so desperate to be heard that we get lost attempting to fit in or to stand out. It's fucking hard learning what feels like hard lessons over and over. We fail to take ownership of our thoughts and actions, pulling us further away from facing who we are. You only really overcome that by trusting in yourself, because that's the only way you can break the cycle."
The Arizona-based band previously released the anthemic track "Burning Your World Down".
"When you listen to our new music, I hope you have a better understanding of our entire career," Smith says about the album as a whole. "Maybe you can see the whole story and realize that we're not different from you. We've been through it all, but we're always trying to learn, grow, and leave something behind we feel will help people. This is our purest work. This is everything we've been through in the last couple of years. It's the best conclusion of the last 10 years and the best opening to the next 10."
