Music is a versatile form of communication, with a history filled with artists who have delivered messages focused on social or political issues. Hailing from Los Angeles, Letlive made their presence known on the national scene with their release “Fake History.” Now, the band is touring in support of their latest effort on Epitaph Records “The Blackest Beautiful.” Produced by Letlive and Stephen George (Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson), the new album is a continuing manifesto that represents the band’s snapshot of the world around them.
While their commentary is a big part of their style, their sound cannot be ignored. Letlive maintains intensity with every aspect of their music. Pure vehemence flows through each measure with pounding drums and low-end guitar work. No one can put an exact label on their underground sound. Their tracks echo with elements of metal and hardcore with melodic grooves added for good measure.
