I mentioned Craig Mabbit before and how he is kind of a band whore - jumping from band to band. This band originated with him as their front man, but they've made improvements after his departure. I'll put up a song from when he was in the band and a couple from later. The current members of The Word Alive are Zach Hansen (guitar, backing vocals), Tony Pizzuti (guitar, backing vocals), Dusty Riach (keys, synth), Justin Salinas (drums), and Tyler "Telle" Smith (vocals).
The band is fairly new, having only been formed in 2008. I'm guessing that since Craig Mabbit was in the band, they had easy exposure to studio and show time. In 2009, they released their EP Empire, through Fearless Records. In 2010, they released their debut full-length, Deceiver. Who knows when they'll be releasing a new one?! I hope soon, but I don't want to see them rush it as too many bands seem to do today.
And now for some music!
These first two songs were my favorites off of the EP, Empire with Craig Mabbit on lead vocals.
I like the first album because it was a little more unique, but I still prefer the second album, because of it's more professional sound.
"The Devil Inside"
"Are You On Drugs" (this is a slower one)
These next two songs are from their second album, Deceiver.
"The Only Rule Is That There Are No Rules" (official music video)
"Dream Catcher" (I love the choruses and ending to this one)
That's all I have for now...
