Critical Acclaim For letlive.
It’s an intense furious whirlwind that, for 45 minutes, threatens to tear the roof and walls off the venue. Not bad for their first headlining gig. You can almost feel, as a photographer crowd surfs near the front, the whole audience’s mind blowing simultaneously. – Kerrang, Live Review
Fake History (Epitaph), is a manic showcase for frontman Jason Aalon Butler’s diverse and theatrical vocal palette—a gorgeous, liquid swoop he partially inherited from his soulman father, who once backed up Little Richard and War. – Revolver Magazine
Trying to contain letlive’s tension, passion and energy is like trying to keep mercury in your hand. Except mercury is about 30 percent less dangerous. – Alternative Press
All talk has turned to towards Jason Butler as hardcore’s new breakout boy – the King of crazy live shows. – NME
letlive. is the freshest take on what has become a beaten down idea and laughable group of bands over the past few years. With Fake History, the band showed a lot of ears that there is still passion and forward thinking within a genre of overly saturated breakdowns one after the other. letlive. have a powerful soapbox both lyrically and musically. 2012 looks big for them.” – Absolute Punk
letlive. breathe new life into the heavy music scene. Their songwriting has no patience for genre expectations or limitations. – AOL Noisecreep
A lesson in the pure power of music…Listen to letlive., and your mind – as well as your eyes and your heart – will be held wide open. – BBC
