    The Letter Black burst onto the hard rock landscape with their Tooth & Nail debut HANGING ON BY A THREAD (2010) which opened as one of the best-selling albums from a new band in the label's history. While it can be attributed to driving guitars and big vocal hooks, the success of the band's first effort can also be traced back to the passion and energy this band expounds both in the music and their live performances.

    As their career developed, The Letter Black intended to continue building on this energy. So when it came time to work on their sophomore album REBUILD, they stepped on the gas by tapping into more riff centric writing and tackling strong subjects such as judgmental personalities, hypocrites, addiction and more while still portraying true depth and hope through it all. The album is full of energy-infused, hard- hitting compositions tailored to be showcased in the band's live show and sure to become pillars of their catalog.

    In late 2015, the band decided to slow down and take a break before focusing on their follow up to Rebuild. They departed their label and found themselves in the driver's seat in 2016. During this short hiatus, guitarist Mark Anthony began writing. Being someone known to always color outside the lines, he did just that with those early demos. When he took them to the rest of the band, it was as if fate had come knocking. Everyone was already on the same track with the direction. "When we met to talk about the new record, it was unanimous that we wanted to do what we've been wanting to do all along. Metal. Though we have had those moments in the past, we were always restricted for various reasons. Those barriers are gone now and that allowed us to create the record the way we wanted. This album is The Letter Black. For the first time, I feel we have successfully delivered the most honest and true music in the band's history" recalls Mark.

    During December of 2016 and early 2017, the band began talking to David Ellefson, bassist of the band Megadeth. Interestingly enough, David has launched a successful record label of his own called the EMP Label Group. Through these talks, the band found themselves inking a new deal with David's label opening up a new direction for 2017. "We are beyond excited to be working with David and Thom over at EMP. We really feel like they get what we are about. We have never spoken with anyone so open to letting us just go with it and create the album that we want to. That kind of trust makes us even more determined to do them proud and deliver the best album we ever have" states Mark.

    With a new label, the release of Pain and a newfound passion and fire, this future of The Letter Black is poised to be a big win.

    another great band | Posted November 15, 2013
    These guys were a chance discovery many years ago, and I've been a big fan ever since. Screaming riffs, driving rhythm, and great lyrics combined with a heart for God make this band stand out.
