UNFD is thrilled to announce the signing of Tonight Alive in Australia and New Zealand. Additionally, the band has signed to Hopeless Records in all other territories. Tonight Alive have also released a new song and music video for “World Away”, an introduction to the sound of the next chapter for Tonight Alive.
The five-piece band hailing from Sydney, Australia has always been a voice of their generation, and “World Away” is no different. On the new track, vocalist Jenna McDougall says: “’World Away’ is a continuation of our quest for self understanding and empowerment, but this time through developing a personal relationship with darkness. In a society that conditions us to suppress and shy away from confronting emotions, we wrote an invitation in ‘World Away’ to shake hands with what scares us most and begin recognising the opportunity for growth in struggle. Produced by Dave Petrovic (The Other Side, The Edge) we are sharing ‘World Away’ with our fans as the introduction to the sound of the next chapter of Tonight Alive.”
Tonight Alive will record their new album this winter.
Tonight Alive is composed of vocalist Jenna McDougall, lead guitarist Whakaio Taahi, rhythm guitarist Jake Hardy, bassist Cameron Adler and drummer Matt Best. A force on the global music scene, Tonight Alive have released a trio of successful albums with The Other Side (2013) and Limitless (2016) debuting on the Australian ARIA Chart at #5 and #6 respectively.
On signing Tonight Alive, Luke Logemann, Head of Recorded Music, says, “We’ve been big fans of Tonight Alive as people and as a band for quite some time now, so working with them is a dream come true. The new music they’re writing is beautiful and brilliant, and we can’t wait for the world to experience it.”
The band is currently on a UK tour with You Me At Six before appearing on this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. They were last seen in Australia supporting A Day To Remember last December.
