The band have been without a drummer since November 2016.
The Word Alive have announced that Matt Horn will be joining the band as their new drummer. The announcement comes after former drummer Luke Holland’s departure this past November. Horn, who was the band’s drum tech and who helped out on their latest album Life Cycles, will be taking over touring drummer duties.
Making the announcement via Facebook, the band said:
“A new chapter in The Word Alive’s story has begun. We’ll be turning over the touring drummer duties to our long time friend Matt Horn. Those who have followed our journey for years know him as our long time drum tech and the performer on our album ‘Life Cycles’. We believed after much deliberation that the best path for us, was to keep things in the TWA family. Matt has been one of our biggest supporters and it is our honor to give him this well deserved opportunity! Enjoy this play through of ‘Sellout’ off of our latest album Dark Matter and come welcome Matt to the family personally at a show nearest you in 2017!
