LETLIVE

It's been awhile since music has had a rebellious voice. Not since Rage Against the Machine put their fist in the air, in the land of hypocrisy has there been such an unmitigated combustion of sonic ferocity fueled by relentless passion and intrepid ideology. At least not until letlive. came along...

LA's volatile four-piece rock band fanned the flames of discontent with their critically praised record, Fake History, for a new generation of fans three years ago, and today have announced their long-awaited return with one of the year's most anticipated albums, The Blackest Beautiful out now via Epitaph Records. letlive. premiered their first new song, "Banshee (Ghost Fame)," in the form of a powerful video.

"This song explores the tragic humor in entertainment as an industry as opposed to an art," explains letlive.'s inimitable vocalist Jason Aalon Butler. "Sonically this track was a pretty suitable representation of the record's sonic spectrum. We also employed some elements of groove that we have always been fans of."

Named #1 on Kerrang!'s list of "The 50 Greatest Rockstars in The World Today," Jason Butler, along with cohorts Ryan Jay Johnson (bass), Jean Nascimento (guitar) and Jeff Sahyoun (guitar), organically meld hardcore, punk, metal and even elements of jazz and R&B, on The Blackest Beautiful, creating a progressive, indelible sound that walks the line between aggressive and melodic and crosses a gamut of genres with an intensity that's rarely found in music today.

"The mindset was certainly a holistic one when regarding this record," Butler adds. "The vibe developed on its own as we wrote it. While we certainly indulged particular tastes, stylistically, as individuals, we made sure that the product culminated as something we could all enjoy. Essentially we all got to explore elements we had always wanted to and somehow found a way to marry them tastefully on one album."

Self-produced with the help of longtime co-conspirator Kit Walters and mixed by pop guru Stephen George (Mary J Blige, Michael Jackson), The Blackest Beautiful features eleven politically, socially and personally conscious songs like "The Priest and Used Cars," which refers the tragic costs of poisonous zeal, "Virgin Dirt," about self-sabotaging relationships, and "27 Club," a personal tale of living life selflessly or selfishly.

Like those that paved the path before them, Rage Against the Machine, Deftones, Mars Volta, At the Drive In, etc., letlive. transcend passing trends and scenes with a focus that is entirely devoted to their art and furthering their creativity through music. The Blackest Beautifulis their latest creation, which will undoubtedly be celebrated for years to come.

After two years on the road touring 20 countries, including performances at Download, Reading & Leeds, Soundwave, Pukkelpop, Orion Fest and tours with Deftones in both Europe and Australia, letlive. is ready to hit the road once again, this time in support of The Blackest Beautiful, leaving everything they've got on the stage this summer on the Vans Warped Tour.
