THE LETTER BLACK SUCCESS:

THE LETTER BLACK has also had radio success with four radio singles from their debut, “Best of Me” (CHR No. 17), “Hanging On By A Thread” (CHR No. 23, Rock No. 6), “Believe” (Rock No. 4) and the current single “New Fire” (Rock No. 17). Media have also gravitated to this heavy-hitting band as they have been covered in Revolver, AOL Noisecreep, AOL RadioBlog, NewReleaseTuesday, JesusFreakHideout, and HM Magazine.
This Pennsylvania-based band has also toured relentlessly since their beginning. The band has performed the past two years at the One Love For CHI benefit where they shared the stage with The Memorials, Brian “Head” Welch, Deftones, Dredg, Eyes Set To Kill, Hoobastank, and Philm with Dave Lombardo. THE LETTER BLACK has also toured with Skillet, Drowning Pool, Decyfer Down, Sevendust, P.O.D, Vince Neil, HAIL!, and Mushroomhead.

THE LETTER BLACK ORGIN:
The origins of Tooth & Nail’s highly heralded hard rock acquisition actually dates back to the members time in Breaking the Silence. After forming in 2006, the group entered the studio independently with Travis Wyrick (P.O.D., Pillar, Disciple), followed by an impressive streak of 150 shows a year including a last minute call from the T&N to serve as a substitute for a broken up band on the otherwise successful Five 4 Five Tour alongside Dizmas and Children 18:3 (with just two weeks notice).
