The Word Alive debuts a new song entitled "Misery". Comments the band's frontman Tyler “Telle” Smith: "We wanted to bridge the gap between our newest album Dark Matter and the writing process of what will become our fifth studio album,. It’s incredible to know the exact direction we will be exploring with our next record before writing even one song. After Warped Tour, it was clear that we had something special with our newer material, especially songs like ‘Trapped‘, ‘Made This Way‘, and ‘Dreamer‘. We wanted to morph those songs into something that would be an extension of those three songs in particular. Heavy, ambient, ominous at times, and much more personal than our previous material."
