Based on the classic folk tale by French author Charles Perrault, Cinderella follows the story of a young woman whose life of hardships is turned upside down. Though there have been thousands of adaptations for both the stage and big screen in several different languages, the foundation of the tale is often left untouched. A common version depicts Cinderella living a ragged life under the control of her stepmother and stepsisters, who are jealous of Cinderella's beauty and grace. When Cinderella's cruel family prevents her from attending the royal ball for Prince Charming, an attempt by the King and Queen to find a bride for their son, her fairy godmother comes to her aid and transforms her rags into a beautiful gown. Cinderella shows up to the ball and immediately catches the eye of Prince Charming, but she is forced to abruptly leave the party at midnight, when she returns to her true form, before the Prince can catch her name. A tale of hope and overcoming obstacles, Cinderella is an enduring narrative that has proven its lasting power through centuries of storytelling.
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.
