The Word Alive have released a new single titled "Wonderland." The track's music video, directed by vocalist Telle Smith, can be found below.

With the new song comes word that both co-founder and guitarist Tony Pizzuti and drummer Matt Horn have exited the band. The Word Alive have issued the following statement:

"For the last 18+ months we've dreamed of reuniting on stage to perform for you all. We've spent countless hours working on new music, live streams for you & connecting in ways we never envisioned while the world stopped. Through that time we've all grown and changed in many ways. It is in that spirit that we announce a lineup change to The Word Alive. It's bitter sweet because while we've loved every special memory we share w/ both Tony/Matt and couldn't have made it this far without their dedication and passion for the band, to our message and the fans first and foremost, we must support their decision to pursue other opportunities life has presented them. We have so much love for them as it is with any previous member of The Word Alive, our goal is to always push forward with love, gratitude and a brotherhood that has always extended beyond all else. We want to wish them the very best as they explore the next stages of their lives. Thanks Tony/Matt for the years of blood, sweat and tears you gave this band, we're happy to cheer you on.

"With that being said, after releasing an album just before a global pandemic hit, it became so clear to us that we had been forging a bond with you guys that superseded music itself. There was a sense of community we'd been trying to build for over a decade and we're excited to continue that. With Wonderland we wanted to share another piece of art that the four of us crafted together, coupled with a music video we'd shot over a year ago!

It's funny seeing these bands go through the same bullshit hair metal bands went through in the 90s. I bet these dudes are wishing real hard that it were 2012 again and their band was still relevant.

These guys are definitely in The Alliance - Corpse Grinder

Embarrassing

New music is terrible. Can see why these members don't want to be associated with it.

this is like Linkedin Park vs LGBTQ+1 community mashup into a band

Imagine being in your 40s and still touring in a van to play this garbage music to empty venues

This was horrid, never heard of this bend, and am glad I never have. -3 out of 10 stars, would not purchase again.

THeir current guitarist had a close mutual friend with me for a few years and once when he came through he did a bunch of coke and talked so much shit on the other guitarist and was telling us he's becoming a soundcloud rapper and quitting the band because metalcore is dead.
