LA’s fiery heavy rock band letlive. are set to release their album ‘Fake History’ through Epitaph Records on April 11 and they’re heading to the UK with their inimitable live show to get rock fans up and down the country salivating in anticipation of the album’s release. 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:

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 indiepost-hardcore style with their record ‘Fake History.’ The band has joined renowned Los Angeles punk rock label Epitaph to release their third studio album.

“When thinking of Epitaph Records I affix Bad Religion, Atmosphere, and the reawakening of the late great Refused to those thoughts (an impressively unorthodox composition in my eyes),” says vocalist Jason Aalon Butler. “Now I think of letlive. to be included amongst that lineage. Pipe dreams realized, ladies and gentlemen.”

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 songwriting, blistering and precise rhythms, hook loaded metal riffs and Butler’s remarkable ability to balance cathartic screams and melodic vocals. Commenting on his band’s sound, Butler says they are “a punk rock band with a soul band’s modus operandi. Vice versa.”

‘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. letlive. who are “the most exciting band In the world today” according to Rock Sound Magazine (UK) is currently touring in Europe with Your Demise and will hit the UK next week.
