After building weeks of anticipation since announcing the release their new album Dark Matter, The Word Alive’s new single “Trapped” has finally hit the internet.
Providing a much darker and almost progressive metal-like vibe (à la Veil of Maya, Periphery, etc.), The Word Alive is proving they have much more in the musical arsenal than some may of previously thought.
In regards to the meaning behind the new single, frontman Telle Smith explains it as, “If you know what it’s like to feel confined to your vices or someone who is, you’ll feel the intensity of ‘Trapped.’ Whether your fix is drugs, alcohol, sex or psychological insecurities, we all have something that can hold us back. ‘Trapped’ is about that feeling, and trying to crawl out of the hole that can be our heads.”
