LETLIVE. JOINS EPITAPH TO RELEASE FEROCIOUS ALBUM “FAKE HISTORY” ON APRIL 12

LA’s fiery heavy rock band letlive. have officially signed to Epitaph Records with plans to release their album Fake History on April 12. The band has posted their kinetic high energy track “The Sick, Sick, 6.8 Billion” on their MySpace and released a jaw-dropping performance video that can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRQEz7J82ZA.

Starting today fans can preorder the album at www.kingsroadmerch.com/letlive/region.

Channeling the frantic intensity of The Blood Brothers, awe inspiring sonic complexity of At the Drive In, unrestrained emotion of Glassjaw and industrial strength hardcore of Refused, letlive. inject new blood into the cutting edge indie-post-hardcore style with their record Fake History. The band has joined renowned Los Angeles punk rock label Epitaph to release their third studio album.
Consisting of Butler (vocals), Jean Nascimento (guitar), Jeff Sahyoun (guitar), Anthony Rivera (drums) and Ryan Jay Johnson (bass), the band has been building a reputation for themselves in the Los Angeles hardcore scene. With their eclectic arsenal of influences, letlive. take heavy music to new heights with dynamic song-writing, blistering and precise rhythms, hook loaded metal riffs and Butler’s remarkable ability to balance cathartic screams and melodic vocals.
Fake History exudes a youthful swagger and power. The album’s opener, “Le Prologue,” begins with tribal drums that give way to an outburst of thundering riffs and defiant vocals with front-man Butler exclaiming “There are no martyrs in resolution. If you remain still, don't expect restitution. Stand up!”
The band’s most notable gift lies is in their songwriting with tracks like “The Sick, Sick, 6.8 Billion,” “Renegade ’86,” “Casino Columbus” and “Muther,” which strikes a pitch perfect balance of sonic aggression and unforgettable melodic choruses.
Epitaph’s release of Fake History will include three brand new tracks “Hollywood, And She Did,” “Lemon Party” and the Brett Gurewitz (president & founder of Epitaph, guitarist for Bad Religion) produced track “This Mime [A Sex Symbol].”
After fighting their way to the top of the Los Angeles hardcore scene, letlive. is now poised to emerge as one of the most exciting and important bands of 2011.
