THE WORD ALIVE Debut New Single “Overdose”

A new chapter is starting for The Word Alive. After nearly 5 years, drummer Luke Holland announced that he’ll be parting ways with the group at the end of the year. Which means the band’s upcoming Overdose Tour will be his last.

“We’ve been through so much together, and that is a bond that will last a life time. However, it’s time for Luke to explore other musical endeavors and pursue passions outside of The Word Alive. We wish him nothing but the best, and sincerely support him in his future just as he supports us in ours. We decided to let you know before the tour so you could have the opportunity to celebrate this chapter coming to an end with us, instead of being blind-sided at the start of the new year.”

The trek kicks off next week and features TWA with Volumes, Islander, and Invent, Animate. And just in time for the run the band released their new single, appropriately titled “Overdose.”

“We’re continuing on, finishing the Dark Matter album cycle with some incredible tours all over the world in 2017. The Overdose Tour will feature our longest headlining set to date including songs we’ve never played live before, as well as some songs we haven’t played in years.”

Here’s a stream of the song:
