Letlive. Disband

2017-04-28 by MrMatt767 | 141 Comments
Post-hardcore band Letlive have announced their disbandment after 15 years together. They have cited a "divergence of views" resulting in the band now undertaking "no further activity for the foreseeable future." This points to a break up or a longterm hiatus for the band. The disbandment follows the recent release of Letlive.'s 3rd studio album.

Fake history was legit one of my favourite albums of the last decade, blackest beautiful was neat too - didnt mind the production as much as others - devil was seriously terrible. If that is what they planned on dishing up in the future then their break up is probably for the best.

Probably because their music was geared towards 13 year olds kids who have never heard of Glassjaw.

Also, for the people wanting Butler in a new band, I guarantee you that band will end up just as bad as Letlive. Dude may have pipes but his song writing ability is bollocks.

blackest beautiful is better than fake history and the production thing was way overblown.

that said, last album was ass and vocal dude seems like a pretentious twat, so this is fine.

also, never really saw how this band was anything like glassjaw other than the "literally stealing glassjaw lyrics" thing. letlive's music is waaaay too glossy, bordering on slightly more soulful risecore.

I remember reading a comment when The Blackest Beautiful was coming out saying that it was going to be 'The Shape of Punk to Come of this generation' and my thought was just 'whoa, they're a decent band but they aren't that good'.

I enjoyed Fake History, and still think it's a decent album, but I think it (as well as Letlive. as a whole) was incredibly overhyped. I don't really remember anything from Blackest Beautiful other than Banshee, and I only got a few tracks into their last album before turning it off. I'm not too heartbroken about this
