letlive. are one of my favourite discoveries this year of our dark lord 2011 – a year which saw Epitaph Records re-release their 2010 album Fake History to a much greater audience that it rightfully deserved.

The post-hardcore quintet have had an awesome year, playing at this year’s Download festival in June, as well as touring extensively.

 “Renegade 86′” is pretty indicative of their sound, inherited from the likes of Glassjaw, which features energetic guitars, dirty bass and a certain Latin influence on the drumming, accompanied by vocals almost spat with conviction.

letlive. have just started a North American tour with Miss May I, Pierce The Veil, The Amity Affliction and Woe, Is Me, and they are by far worth it. Dates, and the video for the somewhat more furious “Casino Columbas” after the jump.
