The Word Alive have released their latest track "Why Am I Like This?," along with a rad new music video. The song is off the band's fifth studio record Violent Noise with an accompanying music video. The record was produced and mixed by Matt Good (Asking Alexandria, From First To Last) who also produced The Word Alive's last record Dark Matter.
Vocalist Telle Smith commented that "Why Am I Like Is?" is about "pursuing something that more than likely you know you shouldn't or that might not be the healthiest choice for you. The last two years I experienced making choices that took me further away from who I wanted to be, and I was living in the moment with no regard for how it would effect me or someone else. It's about finding that person who is kind of the devil on your shoulder, and you want them to tell you what you're doing is ok so you can rationalize it and justify it."
