The Word Alive vs. The Darkness – Cage Match

The Word Alive vs. The Darkness
The Word Alive: Fearles Records / The Darkness: Scarlet Page, Wind-up Records

Just as In This Moment were on the brink of entering the Cage Match Hall of Fame, Arizona metalcore band the Word Alive were able to knock the band off of their top spot. Now, the Word Alive begin their own trek to the Hall of Fame, but to gain their second win, they must defeat a group of rock ‘n’ roll juggernauts from merry old England.

The Darkness have returned with a vengeance after a five-year hiatus, and are set to bring their fans a new batch of tracks with ‘Hot Cakes,’ which will see an Aug. 21 release. The band has just unveiled ‘Everybody Have a Good Time,’ their first official ‘Hot Cakes’ single, which is reminiscent of AC/DC and Queen. To check out our recent, in-depth video interview with the Darkness, click here.

Can the Word Alive move onward and claim their second win in our Cage Match? Or will the Darkness have a “good time” with a victory of their own? Two very different bands with two very different songs, but as always, the choice is yours. Vote for your favorite track in the poll below.
