Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Letlive's album, If I'm the Devil... is a strident, principled and heavy work. It's also perfectly suited for someone who just wants to pound on the steering wheel after a hard day at school, work, or whatever institution happens to command most of your waking life. Just consider the name Letlive - it's meant to be life-affirming above all else. Frontman Jason Aalon Bulter has an ambitious nature which takes him to extremely lofty places. He acknowledges that Letlive is a punk band and one that reflects humanity as a collection of emotional, frontal-lobe beings. At the same time, he fully believes that Letlive can access that utopian, inexplicable transcendental quality that allows art to reach budding revolutionaries the way books and other oratory cannot. If their album, If I'm the Devil... needs a genre, Butler would call it "revolutionary counterculture music," like a more emotional Rage Against the Machine, or Public Enemy with more inclusive politics. Butler grew up as a skater disillusioned with what he saw as a heteronormative, patriarchal punk rock scene until the older kids showed him black artists such as Bad Brains, Living Colour and Fishbone. "Punk rock is inclusive if you want to be included," Butler states, recognizing how Letlive can speak for people who feel they lack representation.
