Letlive. will release a new album If I’m the Devil… on June 10. The tour begins in letlive.’s hometown of Los Angeles on June 14th at The El Rey and the tour will also stop at Irving Plaza in NYC on July 6th. Seahaven, Silver Snakes, and Night Verses will be supporting Letlive. on the tour.

Letlive. front man Jason Aalon Butler shares:
“We truly feel that this is an incredibly important moment for letlive.. For those of you that know what the idea of ll. stands for then you know that previous statement includes you. This is an important time for US. That being said- let’s celebrate these exciting times at one (or multiple) of these headlining performances this summer.
We’ve always made it a point to facilitate eclectic collaborations and genuinely endorse the bands we take on tour and this run is no different. We are very proud to announce Seahaven, Silver Snakes, and Night Verses as our guests in this summer’s events. Please get familiar with ‘If I’m The Devil…’ as well as these magnificent bands joining us. It will be something special. This we are sure of. xo”
‘If I’m the Devil…’ is the follow up to the band’s beloved 2013 release The Blackest Beautiful. The time spent between that and 2016 are defined by the band’s engagement with the griot lineage of Saul Williams and Ta-Nehisi Coates, the deaths of Eric Garner and Mike Brown, the social pathologies that led to Ferguson, Missouri and divisive redlining policies that are functionally domestic terrorism. And with those ideas letlive. is a band that aims to bring political messages into rock music again. Should ‘If I’m the Devil…’ necessitate a genre, one could posit revolutionary counterculture music – a punk rock Run the Jewels, a more emotional Rage Against the Machine, and Public Enemy with more inclusive politics.
