Following the release of their third studio album on March 16th, Words That Burn have been reaping the rewards from press and fans who have been praising ‘Cut Throat Culture’ as a powerful and bold album, bursting with huge melodic anthems, and a contemporary heavy feel that pushes boundaries of their genre.

Sharing the bill with the likes of Sleep Token, Skindred, INME, Loathe, Seething Akira, Jamie Lenman, and Heart of a Coward, (to name but a few), Words That Burn will be performing on Saturday, April 8th at 2.45pm, and tickets are now on sale via this link.
Commenting on their Takedown Festival booking, the band said: “We are absolutely delighted and honoured to be invited to play this years Takedown Festival. It’s a fantastic feeling to be playing on the same bill as some of our favourite bands and influences. We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to Sarah, Kai at Takedown Festival and Oran at Overdrive.ie for making this happen. We’ll see you at the “Out Of Line” Stage on April 8th!!“
Described by Metal Hammer as: “the heft of Parkway Drive, while elsewhere huge choruses evoke modern-day Bring Me the Horizon”, Words That Burn have created a ferocious collection of contemporary and genre-pushing compositions on this new album, including the previously released singles, ‘Den of Lions‘, ‘You’re on Your Own‘, ‘Fire at Will’, and most recent track, ‘Play God’. Words That Burn released their third studio album, ’Cut Throat Culture‘ via Blood Blast Distribution / Believe Digital. The album was mixed and mastered by Josh Schroeder [Lorna Shore, Butcher Babies, King 810] and features the singles, ‘Den of Lions‘, ‘You’re on Your Own’, ‘Fire At Will‘, and ‘Play God’.
The full album track listing is as follows:
Den of Lions
The Cavalry Ain’t Coming
You’re On Your Own
Fire At Will
Having shared stages with Alien Weaponry, Bear Tooth, As I Lay Dying, and many others, Words That Burn have been fusing elements of melodic metal, and alternative rock, loaded with crushing riffs, and soaring choruses, since their formation in 2010.
