letlive. are a band with the power to make you feel alive. If I’m The Devil… is everything a punk rock album should be, encapsulating the spirit of protest, fearlessness, anger and real heart-bursting emotion.

Opener I’ve Learned To Love Myself immediately demonstrates the ambitious progression from previous record The Blackest Beautiful; a grandiose stage-setter that slowly burns with caustic fury, complete with cavernous drums. Good Mourning, America is an anthemic rallying cry against police brutality which sizzles with letlive.’s soul punx grooves, while Nü Romantics and Another Offensive Song are rip-roaring bursts of primal energy. Reluctantly Dead is the album’s centerpiece, a soaring colossus of unbridled, searing passion.

The most vital rock band in the world right now.
