Southern California's rising "Soul Punk" band letlive. has premiered a shocking new video for their current single "Younger" today at Noisey.com. The song is featured on the band's recently released album, The Blackest Beautiful, which is available for purchase now at iTunes, Amazon, BestBuy, letlivestore.com and local indie retailers.
Directed by Ernie Gilbert, produced by Russ Hubley and shot in the band's hometown of Los Angeles, letive.'s video for "Younger" is a satirical take on the misguided power of influential people and the erroneous focus on everything but the worth of individuals. The treatment for the video was written by letlive. and unfolds as singer Jason Aalon Butler's character comes into conflict with a cult-like group and finds himself driven mad with power.
letlive.'s new video comes on the heels of the band's recent announcement that they will be joining labelmates Every Time I Die for a fall tour that kicks off in Cleveland on November 21st and wraps in Buffalo on December 21st. Fans can purchase tickets now at http://www.showstubs.com/collections/etid-tour-2013.
