EDITORS’ NOTES

San Francisco’s Letters from the Fire made a powerful 2016 debut with a fiery brand of dramatic alt-rock that’s not just hard but poignant. “Bruised” builds towering choruses on top of singer Alexa Kabazie’s heavy-hearted vocals and nuanced acoustic guitar, while “Perfect Life” is a blitzkrieg of thundering percussion and dizzying fretwork. The relentless title track comes on like a tidal wave, with bruising, head-banging verses en route to a chorus that burns with a kiss-off message of strength through adversity.

So this is a band that's been around for a little while and went through some lineup changes and even a name change, but with the addition of a female vocalist and freshinging up their sound a bit, I truly think they have found the winning formula for Letters From the Fire. This album an outstanding from beginning to end and shows just how diverse this band can be as well. If you are a fan of good solid rock music, this is definitely an album you will want to check out. Alexa sounds amazing on vocals, Mike and Cameron are a solid guitar section, Brian brings the thunder on the kit and Clayton rounds out the lineup quite nicely on bass Just pick up this album and enjoy!

Great

About Letters from the Fire

Based out of San Francisco, hard rock unit Letters from the Fire was founded by guitarist Mike Keller in 2007 under the name Park Lane. Inspired by a 2003 Candlestick Park show that featured Metallica, Linkin Park, Deftones, Mudvayne, and Limp Bizkit, Keller, along with high school pal Grayson Hurd and a rotating cast of players, honed their chops touring regionally with bands like Fuel before issuing their Michael Rosen-produced eponymous debut under the Park Lane name in 2009 via CD Baby. By this time, the band had secured the talents of core member Clayton Wages on bass, and as their sound began to deepen, they opted for a name change. The resulting Letters from the Fire was taken from the working title of an upcoming song, and the name graced the group's 2011 EP Rebirth, which was produced by Evanescence co-founder Ben Moody. The band's second release under the moniker, prefaced by a hard-hitting cover of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby," was issued in 2014.

A few changes of lead vocalist were made soon after, before Alexa Kabazie joined in time for the band's debut album, Worth the Pain, in 2016. Released on Sand Hill, the album climbed into the Top Heatseekers chart, and the band headed off on tour, both headlining and in support roles for Art of Dying and Adelitas Way. Nina Bergman replaced Kabazie for 2017's self-titled Letters from the Fire, produced by Colin Brittain (One OK Rock, All Time Low, Papa Roach) and featuring a lead single ("Comfort You") co-written by Rob Zombie guitarist John 5. ~ James Christopher Monger
