The time has finally arrived! The Letter Black is releasing their full-length label debut next week, May 4th on Tooth & Nail Records. This debut Hanging On By A Thread follows their Breaking the Silence debut EP that was released last fall.
“The full-length will rock just as hard, if not harder, as the EP,” affirms front woman Sarah Anthony. “We came up with the title because it puts into words how a lot of people, including myself, feel sometimes. A lot of people can relate to it, and that’s what we want.”
Members of The Letter Black have been invited to appear on stage with Hail (including Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, Phil Demmel of Machine Head, Dave Ellefson of Megadeth & Tim “Ripper” Owens of Judas Priest), a fellow super group jam featuring Dave Buckner of Papa Roach, Marcos Curiel of P.O.D., Travis Miguel of Atreau and Marcello Rapp of Soulfly, alongside Traa of P.O.D. serving as guest bassist for the band during a benefit. Currently the band is on tour with Skillet and Red (second leg touring with Skillet as they were on their fall tour as well).
What is in store for The Letter Black for the remainder of 2010? “We’d like to get on as many tours as possible, do a lot of shows and build a stronger fan base,” sums up Sarah. “And more than anything else, we want to continue bringing hope to those who have none.”
