    Los Angeles soul punk band Letlive. will release their new album If I’m The Devil… this Friday, June 10th, and pre-orders are available right now. Since their inception in 2002, Letlive. have been a band that is not easy to categorize. In fact, they refuse to be constrained by the ideas of a “scene” — whether it is punk, metal, indie, or rap. However, if we’re going to put If I’m the Devil… into a genre, one could posit revolutionary counterculture music. A punk rock Run the Jewels, a more emotional Rage Against the Machine, or Public Enemy meshed with inclusive politics.

    The band will embark on a headline tour of the U.S. in June to support the album’s release. All of the band’s tour dates are listed below.

    Yes...but a thing isn't beautiful because it lasts

    Jason Butler is the man, and this band will never stop being over-the-top awesome to their fans, but jeepers did this album bum me out after TBB.

    Agreed. This is so far the biggest let down of 2016 for me personally. "Another Offensive Song" is the only track that really reminds me of their previous work. I'm all for progression and know these guys are about blending many genres, but nothings been clicking.

    Nothing is more emotional than rage against the machine

    They fixed your brain when you were young.

    Agreed. What makes it worse though, is it just felt like a B-side that didn't make one of their previous albums.

    Let's get these people moving faster!

    Epitaph probably should have updated that press release to include the shows that were added after the initial tour announcement (e.g. Toronto on July 13th).

    I'm still really excited for the new album, although have been purposely avoiding listening to the advance songs too much.

    It's honestly a pretty good album. If you go in expecting Fake History Pt. 2 or TBB Pt. 2 you'll be disappointed, but I'm enjoying it as its own thing and finding new things to like with each listen.

    Agreed. I thought it was really good. There are some songs that really have an emotional kick. Sure, it's not really heavy but I didn't find TBB very heavy either. Looking forward to analyzing the lyrics when I can find them.
