Post-hardcore pioneers letlive. heading to Europe in the autumn

Jason Aalon Butler letlive

Californian post-hardcore band letlive. are one of the hottest properties in live music at the moment. A strong work ethic and energetic performances, combined with a genre-defining classic album in Fake History, has granted the band spots on a variety of high-profile tours in the past year or so – they recently hit the UK in February with Deftones of all people, as well as a jam-packed 2012 with Enter Shikari and Your Demise, New Found Glory and While She Sleeps, and Every Time I Die and The Chariot.

The band are currently on tour down under, again with Deftones, but they’ve just booked a month-long European headlining run for this autumn, which will begin in Melkweg, Amsterdam on September 18th and travel to Belgium, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Ireland and the UK, finishing up in London at the Camden Underworld.

Says frontman Jason Aalon Butler:

[quote-symbol symbol1]We have always admired Europe for its music appreciation. Now we are being told that we are appreciated enough by Europeans to be a headlining act in our own right throughout the continent. Cheers, danke, děkuji, merci  x googolplex. That’s ll.ove.

This is on the back of a North American headlining run this summer, which will see letlive. play 39 dates from june through to August. Neither runs have any support announced as yet, but be sure that we’ll have them both up in the events calendar shortly.

We’re also about due a new album from letlive. (through their label Epitaph), and that has been promised this summer, so this tour will be in support of that – lots of new tunes to augment the older material! I’m genuinely fist-bitingly excited for this one, as Fake History saw the band taking the reigns from early Glassjaw and running with it; all aggression, passion, and vitriol. More details when we have it, although we have heard tell that new track “Banshee (Ghost Fame)” will appear on the 2013 Warped Tour compilation album.

In the meantime, here’s one of those older tunes, “Muther“:
