Watch The Word Alive’s new video for “2012” exclusively on AOL Noisecreep. The track is taken from the band’s acclaimed debut album ‘Deceiver’ and can be seen HERE. Also, get more insight into the making of the “2012” video with the band’s behind-the-scenes footage, featured on HERE.

“When we wrote “2012”‘ I knew right away that I wanted the song to be very intense. I wanted it to be something that was straight-forward, something where anyone could get a pretty clear meaning of what it’s about,” explained vocalist Tyler “Telle” Smith. “I had watched the movie ‘Law Abiding Citizen’ right before I wrote “2012” and it was fresh in my mind. I wanted to put into words the way that movie made me feel, from the main character’s point of view.”

The Word Alive kicks off the SmartPunk Tour, their first ever full headlining run, tomorrow in Tuscon, AZ. Support comes from Upon A Burning Body, Abandon All Ships, The Color Morale and labelmates For All Those Sleeping.

The band will also be playing at SXSW in Austin, TX next week, on 3/17 at Full Metal Texas, and 3/18 at the MerchNow / Shirts For A Cure Day Party. The Phoenix, AZ sextet heads overseas next month with We Came As Romans for their first European tour, before a full summer on Vans Warped Tour.
