Fresh from an incendiary set at Download festival, letlive. are all set for an imminent return to the UK which will kick off with appearances on the Lock-up Stage at Reading and Leeds festivals. Bassist Ryan Jay Johnson explains how the band are honored to be on such a bill – “letlive. are going to play at the oldest, and quite possibly largest, festival in the world. A festival that booked The Yardbirds, New Order, and Nirvana – time to sharpen our live show.” Thanks to Rock Sound, the unconventional start to letlive.’s set at Download festival was captured on film. This goes a small way toward demonstrating why you have to see this band live – http://www.rocksound.tv/tv/article/download-festival-2011-shorts-letlive.
