Sydney five-piece Tonight Alive have returned with a fresh new single ‘World Away’, which the band have described as “the sound of the next chapter of Tonight Alive”.
The local rockers — vocalist Jenna McDougall, lead guitarist Whakaio Taahi, rhythm guitarist Jake Hardy, bassist Cameron Adler and drummer Matt Best — are preparing to record a new album this winter, but have dropped ‘World Away’ as a taste of things to come.
“‘World Away’ is a continuation of our quest for self understanding and empowerment, but this time through developing a personal relationship with darkness,” says McDougall.
“In a society that conditions us to suppress and shy away from confronting emotions, we wrote an invitation in ‘World Away’ to shake hands with what scares us most and begin recognising the opportunity for growth in struggle.
“Produced by Dave Petrovic (The Other Side, The Edge) we are sharing ‘World Away’ with our fans as the introduction to the sound of the next chapter of Tonight Alive.”
Tonight Alive, who released their latest album Limitless in 2016, have also just signed to local label UNFD in Australia and New Zealand, and Hopeless Records in all other territories.
