2018 is finally here, and I don't know about you, but I like to start the year off by finding new and different music. Tonight Alive is giving us just that with their album "Underworld," which releases tomorrow 1/12/18.
Tonight Alive has been a household name in the alternative music scene as the Syndey, Australia natives have toured all around the world with bands like All Time Low, Taking Back Sunday, Set It Off and more as well hitting the music festival scene such as Warped Tour and Slam Dunk Fest - gaining them a passionate fan base as a result.
"Underworld" is Tonight Alive's 4th album and consists of 13 tracks, including single Disappear featuring Lynn Gunn of PVRIS. Disappear is a catchy yet meaningful song that is reminiscent of Mid 2000s Emo(Flyleaf, etc). It's unique in sound from any Tonight Alive or PVRIS song and I can tell that this will become a fan favorite and in fact, I've hit replay at least 5 times so far today. Check out the music video
Tracks like Crack My Heart are emotional and have heavier lyrics like "Crack my heart open with your bare hands, watch me bleed" and my favorite, "It's only growing pain, nothing is permanent."
Looking For Heaven is a slower, pretty song that's very piano biased and has inspiring lyrics like "Life gives you what you need to know, so why just make it up as I go?"
You can also find another collaboration on the album in track My Underworld featuring Corey Taylor of Slip Knot. My Underworld is the perfect duet that compliment Corey and Jenna's talents. It isn't too slow, and allows the vocals and instruments to shine without being boring or overwhelming.
Front Woman Jenna McDougall has stated that Underworld is a darker album, inspired by the "ugly parts in me that I wasn't ready to see until now." This album will definitely make you delve deeper into your emotions and fortunately, is the music you need to cope with them and an album you can relate to. I certainly am a bigger fan after this album.
You can pre-order it here.
Also, don't forget to catch Tonight Alive as they hit the road with Silverstein, Broadside, and Picturesque from 1/19 to 3/1 on the Get Free Tour! Dates below.
