LA based punk rock letlive. have announced their fourth studio album If I’m The Devil… due for release June 10th via Epitaph Records. letlive. is a band that reflects humanity as a collection of emotional, frontal-lobe beings, and uses their ambition to ignite the same passion with their fans. You can pre-order the album here.
In addition, the band have unveiled the lead single from the album, “Good Mourning, America” which fuses political lyricism with the urgency of punk, rhythms of hip hop, and avant-garde noise.
The album is the follow up to letlive.’s critically-lauded 2013 release, ‘The Blackest Beautiful’. And the time spent between that and 2016 are defined by the band’s engagement with the griot lineage of Saul Williams and Ta-Nehisi Coates, the deaths of Eric Garner and Mike Brown, the social pathologies that led to Ferguson, Missouri and divisive redlining policies that are functionally domestic terrorism. And with those ideas letlive. is a band that aims to bring political messages into rock music again. “Our music is very left-leaning. It’s very clear I have a large disdain for the way a lot of systems are working and our society’s incapability to unravel,” front man Jason Butler states.
