New Letlive. Project

2014-02-03 by Tony | 37 Comments
Los Angeles post-hardcore band Letlive. has recently announced a new musical project titled Renditions, as a follow-up/companion piece to their most recent album, The Blackest Beautiful.

Renditions will reportedly feature guest appearances from other notable bands. Letlive. has already released a re-imagining of their song "27 Club" featuring Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley during the song's bridge.

To further add to the character of the upcoming release, Letlive. has invited fans to participate in creating the album. The band created a stark and simple website which claims that fans can be an active part of the release and can contribute in a variety of ways, from creating album art to singing on the tracks themselves, so long as they are selected after tagging themselves in show photos on Facebook.

Article's like a week late but that's all right. Great idea, just hope it doesn't become a trend among lesser bands

You can add as many guest musicians as you want and it still won't be a good album

Two of the most most spastic psychotic sounding vocalists in Jason and Keith? Yaaa!

Hopefully they use this chance to do some better fucking production on the album

Production does sound better but unfortunately Keith sounded to tame on this.

I really wish they would release a remastered version of this, with better production, the current production makes it such a hard listen.

Digging: Trophy Eyes - Chemical Miracle

The production was definitely improved with the Keith version, so hopefully the full album follows in the same vein.

Both the fan-based and pro-based parts of the idea rule. I wish I had talent.

Also maybe it's just me but the production doesn't sound much better, if at all.

Hopefully, Buckley will give this band a righteous kick up the arse.

This is a cool idea and a decent way to adress the production issues on their last record. Im not sure if im into Buckly's substitution to the
song though. On first listen it came across as awakwardly phrased and devoid of the same enegy of the original section had. Could be that
im just so used to hearing that part as Butler's though.

Production's not even bad on the new album, it's just different and takes a while to get used to and people don't like different things if it's not pretentious.

I mean, I hated it first few listens, but I think it works great with their sound now.

Wasn't really a fan of Buckley's part on this though, hopefully some of the others will be better.

The song only sounds slightly better production-wise than Blackest Beautiful imo.

Won't be paying for this but i'll probably check it.

I don't understand why you'd complain about auto tune. Most every band you hear clean singing has some kind of pitch correction on it. I think what you mean to say is you hate the way the cleans are produced.

Keith is a very personal writer, so I understand he's not as good when he isn't performing his own material
