The Word Alive — Telle Smith (vocals), Tony Pizzuti (guitar, vocals) Zack Hansen (guitar, vocals), and Matt Horn (drums) — have today released their fifth full-length album, MONOMANIA.
MONOMANIA was produced by Erik Ron (Godsmack, I Prevail, Issues) and is available now through Fearless Records/Caroline Australia.
Here’s the verdict so far:
“MONOMANIA is a front running contender for Album Of The Year for me. Telle has really dug deep lyrically and bared his soul and there’s just something about him showing that vulnerability that’s easily relatable.” – Wall Of Sound
“So coherent and concise in its delivery, production, and arrangement, you’ll find yourself worrying less about how to pigeonhole this release and more about if you’ve missed any of the clever elements deeply embedded in each song. “- TheMusic
“While the combo of electronics and post-hardcore moments may, on paper, seem alienating for the casual or hardcore heavy fan, it’s in the balance of dense arrangements and blasting emotion on MONOMANIA that The Word Alive truly thrive.” – The Soundcheck
“MONOMANIA is immediately likeable and I can see it becoming a bit of an ear worm. In fact, after I listened to this album through for the first time I was singing it for the rest of the afternoon.” – Good Call Live
