Kerrang! places letlive.'s frontman, Jason Aalon Butler at the top of list in their cover feature, "The 50 Greatest Rockstars In The World Today." Hyper-charged, high-energy passion and hard work collide in letlive., making them one of the most respected and anticipated bands out there today. Appearing alongside Epitaph labelmate Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon at #2 and Metallica's Lars Ulrich at #3, letlive. proves that enduring hardships, staying genuine and true to their music pays off.
Blood, sweat and tears are a daily occurrence for a band like letlive. who are currently on a demanding tour schedule in support of the release of their album, Fake History. Keeping the pace with the biggest names in rock, letlive. are making their mark.
"Rockstars of the world raise your game, Jason Aalon Butler certainly is. If you don't he'll be out of sight by the time this list comes around again next year." (Kerrang!) "It does of course help that his band is simply outstanding." (Kerrang!)
Credibility, both sonically and professionally play a huge role in letlive.'s plight which is evident in both their live performance and in their music. Imagine Glassjaw, The Blood Brothers, Refused and At The Drive In, storming the stage during a Rage Against The Machine performance at the Motown Historical Museum and you'll start to get some idea of what letlive. are about...hard work, honesty, and staying true to their art.
"As punk as [letlive.'s] sound may be, theirs is a sound influenced as much by jazz as it is three chords and truth." (Kerrang!)
letlive. are currently shooting a new video for their single "Muther" and fans can check out their latest video here.
