Sometimes, you’ll think of me, and say “I miss you, the stories you’d tell me.” You’ll wish we had more time, you got to say goodbye. Don’t forget, don’t forget what I told you. You gotta live, gotta live like I showed you. I’m proud of who you are, and it’s not too late.
TWA is a band that I think deserves a lot more recognition than they’re getting currently. Not only do they have lyrics that are inspiringly honest to match their already real, relaxed offstage personas, but they’re also legitimately talented. Guitar work is among some of the most inventive, complex, and blazingly fast in modern metal (not just metalcore), and the bass keeps up right along. There’s no shortcuts taken by the members here; they’re all just good at what they do. With the recent acquisition of YouTube drumming sensation, Luke Holland, to replace former drummer, Justin Salinas, the band has gained a larger fanbase and continues to grow more and more every day. With two solid LP’s and an awesome EP under their belts, The Word Alive is worthy of a listen by ANYONE interested in metal.
And all we need is a release, a reason to be and a fight in which we believe. We are the ones who save ourselves, don’t think these walls will keep us out. Don’t abandon, don’t abandon what we’ve started. ‘Cause I believe in you, in fighting for whatever I have to.
