Initially premiering over on Loudwire, Arizona metalcore troupe The Word Alive have now unveiled a video for ‘Why Am I Like This?’, the second single to come from their forthcoming LP, ‘Violent Noise’.
Speaking about the song, vocalist Telle Smith explains, “It’s about pursuing something that more than likely you know you shouldn’t, or that might not be the healthiest choice for you. The last two years I experienced making choices that took me further away from who I wanted to be, and I was living in the moment with no regard for how it would effect me or someone else. It’s about finding that person who is kind of the devil on your shoulder, and you want them to tell you what you’re doing is okay so you can rationalize it and justify it.”

The band’s fifth full-length album, ‘Violent Noise’, is set for release on May 4th 2018 via Fearless Records.
