Our Story

THE WORLD WILL BURN has carefully crafted their music to be more than just a collection of songs.  From the very beginning, TWWB has been focused on creating an emotional musical experience for the listener.  

THE WORLD WILL BURN is a unique worldwide collaboration between Dale Thompson and Alan Zaring.  Dale, who lives in New Zealand, and Alan, who lives in the United States,  have been working together remotely to create music that transcends culture, language, and genres.  THE WORLD WILL BURN is focused on emotion and passion instead of commercial pressure.  Their  debut album  changed the way you look at hard rock music.  New, fresh sounds combined with classic influences merged with thoughtful lyrics.  THE WORLD WILL BURN has broken free from the onslaught of heavy music that all sounds the same.  

Dale Thompson has over 20 studio releases to date, and is best known as front man for the band BRIDE.  His vocals are legendary and he is consistently considered one of the top singers in heavy music worldwide.  Dale takes his talents to new heights with THE WORLD WILL BURN.

Alan Zaring is a multi-instrumentalist who has been a part of numerous projects of all genres through the years.  He has focused his efforts into the music of his passion, heavy, hook-filled, guitar driven rock.  Alan plays or programs all of the instruments on the upcoming CD.

Their first album, SEVERITY,  achieved the #1 position of Amazon's hot, new alternative metal downloads and remained near the top for 3 months upon its release in January, 2016.  4 Songs from SEVERITY have been in the top 50, with the songs "No One Wants to Die" and "Place in the Sun" both taking the #1 slot.  SEVERITY received fantastic reviews and ratings on all platforms.  TWWB released their sophomore album, "RuiNation" in April of 2017.  "Ru iNation" took the musical game to a new level with more sophisticated songs and a more polished sound.  It is enjoying more success and radio play than their debut album and introduced many new fans to the music of TWWB.  A third album is now being recorded with a projected release date of Spring, 2019.
