Album: The Real You
Label: Zippah Records
Released: March 25, 2016
This five piece indie rock band from Boston, MA called The Life Electric have released their album The Real You via Zippah Records. The Life Electric came about in 2011 with former Action Verbs frontman Joey Chehade (vocals) who met up with three-fifths of indie rock band Gold Star Morning, The band, also consisting of Ben Leang (guitar), Cory Bean (bass), and Joel Silloway (drums). The bands album includes eleven catchy songs that will be guaranteed to be stuck in your head all day or even week. When listening to the first song ‘Gone, Gone, Gone’ the first song that popped in my head was Walk The Moons “Anna Sun”, the upbeat tempo throughout the track made you want to sing along and dance, even if it was your first time listening to it you just couldn't stop yourself from moving.

Artist: While She Sleeps
Label: Razor & Tie
Released: April 21, 2015
Sheffield, England’s While She Sleeps have released their 2nd full length album 'Brainwashed' right after their last one 'This Is The Six' back in 2012, we can definitely say this band is one not to miss at this years Vans Warped Tour. Brainwashed was recorded by Carl Bown (Trivium), mixed by Colin Richardson (Bullet For My Valentine, As I Lie Dying) and mastered by Grammy Award winner Ted Jensen. The reason for the long wait on the album was due to lead vocalist Lawrence "Loz" Taylor, he was forced to seek career-saving surgery on his vocal chords back in 2014.
The band explains, “Everything that we have been through these past years has become the main ingredient for the new record. On a subconscious level we have put our collective experiences into the silver lining of this music. If for once the saying good things come to those who wait was true, this is it: We have done our fans proud. This record will define While She Sleeps.”

Album: Senses Fail/ Man Overboard
Label: Pure Noise Records
Released: March 3, 2015
If you are a fan of Senses Fail or Man Overboard then you are in luck! Both bands have decided to release an album together which will be them covering a classic song from each other as well as two new tracks. The album is set to release on March 3rd via Pure Noise Records. Here is what Buddy Nielsen, vocalist of Senses Fail, had to say about the record.
“We are excited to do our very first split,” says Senses Fail’s Buddy Nielsen. “Years, ago bands would do “VS” splits all the time, where one bad covers the others song, in recent years it hasn’t been as popular. We are thrilled to be able to share this chance with home state brothers. The song “All You Need Is Already Within” is a b-side to our forthcoming record, and shows a different side of what people have come to expect from Senses Fail.”
Man Overboard “One Fixed Point”
- This song will have whoever is listening moving around. What caught our attention in this song though were the drums; the fast pace and energy to be exact.
Senses Fail “All You Need Is Already Within You”
- The guitar intro is guaranteed to capture the listener’s attention and the song in general won’t disappoint. From the vocals to instruments this song will be one to want to hear live because no one will be standing still once they start playing it.
Senses Fail/Man Overboard Track List:
1. One Fixed Point - Man Overboard
2. Cute When You Scream - Man Overboard (Senses Fail cover)

All we have to say is WOW! Letlive. definently put on one amazingly unforgettable show at San Francisco’s Bottom Of The Hill this past Sunday (March 10,2013). The band started off their headlining show with their intro song “Le Prologue” ;which is off of their album ‘Fake History’, and might I say started off with so much energy and contact with the crowd which got everyone wondering how the rest of the night was going to turn out. Vocalist Jason Aalon Butler welcomed everyone in the crowd with open arms to the stage and at some points even let them sing from his microphone while he jumped around using every single space of the stage to his advantage and even also pulling down the venues projection screen. You might of never guessed that this stop was actually one of their 3rd to last shows of their headlining tour since it kicked off in Orlando, FL on January 27th. Letlive. has had the pleasure of going on tour with Underoath and Deftones recently and even though they will wrapping up their tour tonight in San Diego you can still experience one of their shows while they’re on tour with Pierce The Veil or on The Vans Warped Tour this year.
