The Letter Black burst onto the hard rock landscape with their Tooth & Nail debut HANGING ON BY A THREAD (2010) which opened as one of the best-selling albums from a new band in the label’s history. While it can be attributed to driving guitars and big vocal hooks, the success of the band’s first effort can also be traced back to the passion and energy this band expounds both in the music and their live performances.

As their career developed, The Letter Black intended to continue building on this energy. So when it came time to work on their sophomore album REBUILD, they stepped on the gas by tapping into more riff centric writing and tackling strong subjects such as judgmental personalities, hypocrites, addiction and more while still portraying true depth and hope through it all. The album is full of energy-infused, hard-hitting compositions tailored to be showcased in the band’s live show and sure to become pillars of their catalog.

The Letter Black have enjoyed an ever growing fan-base through playing an impressive streak of 150-200 shows a year worldwide between 2010-2015, several charting radio hits and writing songs that speak to everyone.

In 2016 they departed their label and found themselves in the driver’s seat. Guitarist Mark Anthony began writing for their third album. Being someone known to always color outside the lines, he did just that with those early demos which lead to by far The Letter Black’s most aggressive and heaviest record to date, Pain. Mixing in Mark’s lower tunings, 7 string guitars, new approaches to synth/strings, Justin’s insane drumming and Sarah’s unbridled vocals has in fact produced an album that is unique and promises to take the listener on a journey into the real minds and hearts of The Letter Black.

During December of 2016 and early 2017, the band began talking to David Ellefson, bassist of the band Megadeth. Interestingly enough, David has launched a successful record label of his own called the EMP Label Group. Through these talks, the band found themselves inking a new deal with David’s label opening up a new direction for 2017. “We are beyond excited to be working with David and Thom over at EMP. With the new label, they released “Pain” in 2017. The band performed shows across the US and Europe supporting the release.

In spring of 2020, the band began working on their senior record; album number 4 and in April, they signed to Rockfest Records.
