Phoenix, United States (2008 – present)

The Word Alive is an American band from Phoenix, Arizona, formed in 2008, the band is currently signed to Fearless Records. Their 2009 label debut, Empire reached position 15 on the Top Heatseekers, meeting a great amount of positive acclaim upon its release in 2009. The following year, the group recorded and released their debut full-length album, Deceiver on August 31, 2010, which reached 97 on the Billboard 200 and 15 on Independent Albums. The Word Alive has gained renown praise for their innovative style of modern metalcore; blending , , and ambient elements into their overall delivery. The Word Alive was founded in 2008 by Craig Mabbitt (lead vocals) with Zack Hansen (lead guitar) and Tony Pizzuti (rhythm guitar) who were former members of the bands Calling of Syrens and Clouds Take Shape. As a side-project of Mabbitt during his part in Escape the Fate, the remaining required members he recruited to start The Word Alive were chosen to be Nick Urlacher (bass), Dusty Riach (keyboard) and Tony Aguilera (drums). The group recorded songs with the intention of releasing them as a self-titled EP, despite that it never surfaced. Later on, the band forced Mabbitt to leave due to their dissatisfaction with Escape the Fate’s schedules, which required Mabbitt to work as a full-time member.

The day after, Mabbitt posted a blog to his fans via his Myspace account explaining that leaving the band was not his decision and that ” pretty much replaced me while I was on the road due to the fact that they wanted to tour and couldn’t until I was available, I started that band with those guys and I’m very hurt at how they replaced me while I was touring.

    Real is definitely a grower. I didn't care for it too much at first but I'm starting to go back to it more frequently. It's not as instantaneous as Deceiver or even Life Cycles was but I like a lot of the songs. Never Forget is a pretty solid jam in particular

    Знатные пиздаболы. Когда отменяли тур весной, говорили что просто переносят и осенью полюбас приедут.

    The new album is really good. There are some really epic songs here and there are a few that are different from what they usually do, but in a good way. Definitely wouldn't be named as best album of 2014. Craig Mabbitt's new album with his new band The Dead Rabbitts is much much better.

    New album is alright. Nothing special. [2] 'Lighthouse' is catchy, though. loved it.
