Sydney pop punk / alternative rock outfit Tonight Alive have announced their new album, Underworld, will be out January 12th via Hopeless Records. Pre-orders are available here. Additionally, the band have also released the music video for the lead single, “Temple”, which premiered yesterday on Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter. Born out of a time when McDougall was experiencing severe depression and fatigue, the lyrics for this super-charged and energetic track were penned when she was entrapped in being sick in her mind, body and soul.
Underworld musically symbolizes the totality of the band’s life coming full circle after experiencing their highest highs and lowest lows. They share an emotional journey into their personal shadows of the underworld, something they feel strongly we all possess within us. Singer Jenna McDougall artfully awoke the feelings that she had repressed and used them as a driving force when writing her lyrics and recording this album. She dissected her darkness to get a deeper understanding of who she really is and what she truly loves and it provided her the power and confidence to push herself to remember at the core, why she loves music. McDougall shares, “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.”
