Letlive.'s new single, Renegade '86, is taken from their third album, Fake History, which was initially released in April 2010 on Tragic Hero but was re-released on Epitaph in April 2011 with an additional three tracks. Letlive. will be performing in the UK on the Kerrang! Tour in February 2012.
The current line up of letlive. is: Jason Aalon Butler (vocals); Ryan Jay Johnson (bass); Jean Nascimento (guitar); Anthony Rivera (drums) and Jeff Sahyoun (guitar).
