Australian-based rock band Tonight Alive is back and better than ever with a new single and lyric video for “World Away.” The band has recently signed with Hopeless Records, which marks a big change for the band and opens up the door to exciting new opportunities. Hopeless Records is a huge label that has worked with popular artists like Neck Deep, Moose Blood, Yellowcard, The Used, All Time Low, and Sum 41, and the company’s EVP Business Development and A&R, Eric Tobin, said they are very excited to add Tonight Alive to the family.

As someone who was a huge fan of Tonight Alive in my early teenage years, I am so excited to see them come back with new music. Their new single, “World Away,” makes me feel nostalgic for all of their old music I used to listen to on repeat. It pulled me right back into my obsession with Tonight Alive and made me remember why I loved them in the first place. I will be listening to it on repeat over the next few days. I love Tonight Alive for their guitar riffs and heavy rhythms and melodies, and “World Away” does not disappoint in those aspects. It’s similar to their old stuff, but there are some subtle changes in the music, and I can tell this is the start of a new and exciting journey for Tonight Alive.
The song was produced by Dave Petrovic, who produced The Other Side, my favorite Tonight Alive album, and lead vocalist Jenna McDougall said the track “is a continuation of our quest for self understanding and empowerment, but this time through developing a personal relationship with darkness.” It’s awesome. Listen to it. And get excited, because Tonight Alive is recording their new album over the summer. I personally can’t wait for it.
The band is currently on a UK tour with You Me At Six, and then they are scheduled to appear at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. Check out the full list of tour dates below, and listen to “World Away” on Tonight Alive’s official website.
