letlive. Release New Single Online

Post-hardcore rockers letlive have released their first song after three years! “Good mourning, America” is a seething piece of social commentary that brings its message across with a bang! Not only do they address antiquated gender roles, but also racial discrimination, standing up for human rights and police brutality:

“We ain’t so different now are we?”
Said the cop to the killer inside of me
“I’ve heard your story, boy, and that shit gets old
We’ve got the right to take your life, so do just what you’re told”.

Check out the song here:

A truly powerful first single of the upcoming album “If I’m the devil” which is due out on June 10 via Epitaph Records. On their website they write:

“The album is the follow up to letlive.’s critically-lauded 2013 release, The Blackest Beautiful. And the time spent between that and 2016 are defined by the band’s engagement with the griot lineage of Saul Williams and Ta-Nehisi Coates, the deaths of Eric Garner and Mike Brown, the social pathologies that led to Ferguson, Missouri and divisive redlining policies that are functionally domestic terrorism. And with those ideas letlive. is a band that aims to bring political messages into rock music again. “Our music is very left-leaning. It’s very clear I have a large disdain for the way a lot of systems are working and our society’s incapability to unravel,” front man Jason Butler states.”

A standpoint definitely needed in the contemporary music scene!
