Tonight Alive Announce New Album And The Departure Of Guitarist Whakaio Taahi

It's all happening in Tonight Alive's world; not only have they announced their new album, Underworld, but they've also revealed a rocking new single in the form of Temple. The band's new LP will be released through their new label, Hopeless Records, on January 12. 

On top of that, Tonight Alive have announced that guitarist Whakaio Taahi has departed the band. In a statement on their Facebook, they have said:

"It is with regret and great sadness that we announce our guitarist Whakaio's departure from Tonight Alive. After 9 years on this path together, Whak has made the decision to step back from touring and pursue his own career in songwriting and producing outside of the band. Whakaio loved and came alive in the creative process; it was a pleasure and privilege to witness. We know his heart and gifts belong in the studio and we continue to love and support each other as a family. The four of us consider ourselves to be 1 part of a greater whole, and will always hold a place for our brother and best friend, whose energy will be known, heard and felt for lifetimes."

Listen to their new single, Temple, below:

It's good to hear Tonight Alive upping their guitars again – and that chorus is catchy as hell.
