The six-piece newgrass outfit Railroad Earth is a New Jersey-based band that takes its name from the Jack Kerouac short story "October in the Railroad Earth." Formed in 2001, the band combines elements of Americana, bluegrass, rock and jazz but is primarily known as a jam band due to its live improvisation at shows. After recording a five track demo, the band immediately secured a spot at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and released its debut album The Black Bear Sessions. Railroad Earth has since released several LPs of its rootsy, Americana brand of music including its critically acclaimed follow-up record, Bird In A House.
After hard-rocker Craig Mabbitt left metalcore band Blessthefall, he started (and sang lead vocals for) The Word Alive as a side project to his other, perhaps better-known, group Escape the Fate. After bad blood and mixed messages, Mabbitt was replaced by Tyler "Telle" Smith, former bassist of the Greeley Estates. Now the rockers describe themselves as "more complete as a band" than ever, which can be heard in the confidence with which they bend, blend and push genres. The vocals switch from clean post-hardcore singing to deep, metalcore screaming with ease. Thus, after a history of band disputes and member replacements, Tyler Smith, Zach Hanson and Tony Pizzuti have established themselves as confident, settled, screaming rockers The Word Alive.
