The band announced the song through a funny video of lead singer Travis Clark being “abducted” in a Halloween costume. Being that aliens were proven to be real this year, they might enjoy the track and eventually let any band member go free.

On the forthcoming track, Clark describes the band’s intentions behind it. “We’re all just a bunch of kids who feel like aliens searching for the answer to the question – ‘does anybody else feel like I do’” he says. “Every few albums or so I get a strong feeling about a song. It’s hard to explain, but the last 2 times I felt this way were with ‘Check Yes Juliet’ and ‘Sad Song’. I have that same feeling about ‘Alien’ so only time will tell what that means!”

Described as having “nostalgic, warm vocals and captivating riffs with modernity,” “Alien” will surely please the OG WTK fans who played “Skyway Avenue” on repeat.

The band teased the single earlier this week prior to the official announcement through a “classified document” posted on Twitter/X.

“This could be the tip of a much larger clandestine iceberg,” it reads. “Maintain strict operational silence, activate [redacted] assets, and ensure out covert surveillance is intensified.”

If this is We The Kings‘ roundabout way of saying there’s more to come after “Alien,” we are ready for all that will unfold after this “investigation.”

Fortunately, you can pre-save “Alien” here and follow the band on Instagram for more teasers of the track.
