Letlive1GREAT NEWS! LA’s volatile four-piece rock band letlive, return with their long-awaited album ‘The Blackest Beautiful’, due out on July 8th via Epitaph Records. Check out their massive track ‘Banshee (Ghost Fame)’.

The band’s inimitable singer Jason Aalon Butler explains: “This song explores the tragic humor in entertainment as an industry as opposed to an art. 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.”Letlive_Mini39855aButler adds: “The mindset was certainly a holistic one when regarding this record, “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.”Letlive1Jason 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.
