Tonight Alive release video for new track ‘Temple’ and announce UK tour dates

TONIGHT ALIVE can today announce that their brand new studio album ‘Underworld’ will be released on January 12th 2018 through their new home at Hopeless Records. For the writing of the album, singer Jenna McDougall artfully awoke the feelings that she had repressed and used them as a driving force when creating 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.”

Along with this 13-song album announce, TONIGHT ALIVE has released the music video for their first single ‘Temple’ the song of which premiered yesterday (Sunday 15th Oct) 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.
