If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know just how much I love Californian post-hardcore band letlive. – they’re as important to the modern scene as Glassjaw were when they put out more than one release a decade, and combine masterful songwriting with an fantastically energetic live show. Complete package whaaat?

They’ve just announced a new headlining tour for this spring with labelmates Architects, who are on the cusp of releasing their new album Lost Together // Lost Forever next month.

They’re sonically quite different, but the band prefaced any dissent with the following comment, as well as explaining the importance of this tour:

“We’ve been a band for nearly a decade and this is our 2nd proper United States headliner. That being the case, it is a rather significant and pivotal endeavor at once. Now that you know that, you can safely assume how important this tour is to us as well as who we share it with. I’ve noticed many comments polluting our considerably juvenile cyber spaces inquiring things like “why would this band tour with this band?” and some other unwarranted entitled opinion on what bands should or should not do with THEIR art. I can sincerely say to you that letlive. plays music for people that want to listen to music with no real concern for specified or claimed genre, while playing that music alongside others that will do the same. In this case, those people go by the monikers of Architects, Glass Cloud, and I the mighty. Call it what you will, we’ll keep calling it art. Holler.”
