Pennsylvania-based rockers The Letter Black released Rebuild on November 11. This is the sophomore follow-up album to the highly successful debut Hanging On By A Thread (2010). Rebuild was produced by former RED guitarist Jasen Rauch (RED, Disciple, Fireflight) and Johnny K (Disturbed, 3 Doors Down, Staind) and mixed by David Bendeth (Papa Roach, Paramore, Breaking Benjamin) and Jay Ruston (Pop Evil, Stone Sour, Jars of Clay).
"The first time around, we were new and it was all brand new to us," says vocalist Sarah Anthony. "We weren't really sure what we were doing, and it was a whole new experience. This time around we were able to settle in, be more comfortable, and focus on writing songs we like, honing in on what we wanted to say."
The Letter Black burst onto the alternative rock landscape with their EP followed by the full-length debut in 2010 - now one of their label Tooth & Nail's top-selling debuts in recent memory.
"The last record was all about the healing process and being at rock bottom," recalls Sarah. "We called this record 'Rebuild' because it's all about being on the up and up from where you were. It talks about conquering things that have been hurdles in your life and just overcoming. Our whole goal as a band is to give people hope."
The Letter Black has already been introducing the new music for their very loyal fan base who have come to love the band's explosive live show. The band has toured relentlessly since their beginnings and shared the stage with the likes of Skillet, Drowning Pool, Sevendust, P.O.D, Hoobastank, Thousand Foot Krutch and Love & Death. This month, the band embarks on a month-long tour with Pop Evil.
The band is vocalist Sarah Anthony, guitarist Mark Anthony, bassist Matt Beal, and drummer Justin Brown.
