L.A. post-hardcore band letlive. have been around for over a decade, but started bubbling up from the underground upon being signed to Epitaph in February of 2011. The band’s third album, 2010’s Fake History, was rereleased by the label that year, and the band’s toured since then, with one of their more memorable shows being at last year’s Orion Music and More fest. Earlier today, the first single from their forthcoming album, The Blackest Beautiful, became available online. “Banshee (Ghost Fame)” is a sucker punch of a song that’s equal parts Refused and At the Drive In with a touch of Rage Against the Machine, and it definitely lends itself to repeated listens.
The Blackest Beautiful comes out on July 9, but you can pick up the single now.
