    Letter Kills was an alternative rock band from Southern California, formed in August 2002. They were signed to Island Records.

    The band cites their Christian beliefs as the reason they got together. The name Letter Kills comes from Second Corinthians 3:6 - "for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life."

    Their first album, The Bridge, was released July 2, 2004, selling around 202,000+ copies.

    They toured the United States, with Story of the Year as part of the Nintendo Fusion Tour and on the Van's Warped Tour they also where the opening act for the band The Used in the winter of 2005. They have also toured with The Used, Lostprophets, My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace and many other bands.

    While recording their followup to The Bridge, guitarist Dustin Lovelis left the band to form The Fling, and the band soon broke up in 2006 . They cited the cause of their breakup as lack of artistic freedom with their label.

    After the band broke up, lead singer Matthew Shelton returned to his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas where he started a new band called Teleo. Lead guitarist Timothy Cordova moved back to Utah and got his Masters Degree, and shortly after became a middle school Language Arts teacher. Cordova currently plays guitar for The Rock Music. In 2008 Matt Shelton became the permanent lead singer of the band The Wedding replacing Kevin Keihn. There is currently no word if the band Teleo is going to be in works. July 2009 Lead singer Matthew James started to promote his new acoustic solo project Hotel Spangler with the album Dead and Done.
