Boy, do we have news for you. Last week our favourite Aussie Rockers Tonight Alive shared what can only be described as a tidal wave of news to excite fans of the band everywhere: New Album. New Tour. New video. Are you excited? I know I sure am. Having signed to Hopeless Records earlier this year, this new album, entitled Underworld, has been a highly anticipated follow up to the bands previous three releases. The album is sure to be one of their best yet, as the band has reached a place in their explosive career where seemingly everything has come full circle. In choosing the name for this album, the band looked to what they were writing about– and this time around, it was the low points of self-exploration and understanding. Born from the ashes of depression and fatigue, Jenna McDougall states “The album is called Underworld and I named it that because it reflects the ugly parts of me that I wasn’t ready to see until now”. With their new partnership with the giants at Hopeless Records and dark, introspective material lyrically– I’m sure that this album will make waves when it’s released on January 18th, 2018.

In the meantime though, to give fans a taste of what to expect on this new album, Tonight Alive has also released their first single and video from Underworld, entitled “Temple“. Opening with the powerful guitar riffs we’ve come to expect from Tonight Alive, we’re immediately thrust into the headspace of the single as Jenna sings “I’m intoxicated by my depression, and I’m consumed by the feeling that I may never find the answer, and the end just gets more near“, and dances through the street in addition to performing in a cramped bathroom. Jenna’s charisma and style once again shines in the video, as she wears a street outfit I wish I could pull off, and somehow makes a puffy jacket look fashionable as hell. One thing too becomes clear in the styling of this video– orange and yellow might be themes on this album. With those being the colours on Jenna’s face, and that the album art featuring yellow as well, we might see those bright colours featured more with this album– contrasting the darker material. There’s definitely not enough good things I could say about this song and video; it’s catchy as all hell with such relatable lyrics that while listening, I sound myself dancing moves of catharsis similar to those done in the video. This is a song you’re going to have on repeat, and if it’s any indication of Underword— we’re in for an amazing release.
Finally, in addition to announcing and releasing new music, Tonight Alive also revealed that they’ll embark on a co-headlining tour with Silverstein as they promote Underworld early next year. With Broadside and Picturesque opening on the tour, this is one you won’t want to miss.
