The Word Alive issue Sellout video

The Word Alive have premiered the video for their track Sellout.

The song is taken from their album Dark Matter, due out on March 18.

Frontman Tyler ‘Telle’ Smith says: “Dark Matter is the result of our most in-depth writing and recording session we’ve done, and is something we consider to be our most dynamic and expansive album to date.

“This record completely defines and expresses who we are, and where we are going, taking the listener to the darkest and most honest places our band has dared to venture.”

The Word Alive are kicking off their North American tour tonight (February 19) at San Diego’s Soma. They’re also scheduled to play the Longlive festival in Lyon, France, on May 14.

Dark Matter is available for pre-order in a variety of bundle packs.
