Alive and kicking


Ear-splitting American rockers The Word Alive will be going flat out to blow the roof off Queenstown’s Revolver tonight. 

The metalcore band from Phoenix, Arizona, is on a whistle-stop tour of New Zealand to blast out tracks from their best-selling debut album Deceiver. 

“This is one big record,” lead singer Tyler Smith says of their skull-crunching CD. 

“We have really tried to break the mould from the genre boundaries that most bands stick to.” 

Catch The Word Alive plus support acts Alison Lake and This Season’s End at Revolver tonight from 9.30
