Defeater Stream New Album ‘Letters Home’ In Its Entirety

DefeaterMassachusetts punk band Defeater have made their new album available for streaming on their bandcamp page. Letters Home is the bands 3rd full length, and continues the story of a post WWII family, whose foundations were laid out in previous records Travels and Empty Days & Sleepless Nights. On the topic of lyrical inspiration, vocalist Derek Archambaul said: 

“Inspiration for this record came from a few places. Much like with Lost Ground, these stories are based around my two grandfathers’ service in WWII.”Musically the record hearkens back to Travels and Lost Ground.  EDSN was a bit of a departure for us, and I think we took some good chances on that record but Letters Home brings it back to why we started this band in the first place five years ago.”

Musically,  this record sees the band take on a heavier sound, and this was deliberate, according to guitarist Jay Maas:

 “Letters Home is more focused on sounding dirty and mean, but at the same time we have improved as songwriters so some of these ten tracks are our most accessible.” 

Letters Home is out now via Bridge 9 Records, and the band are appearing on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour.  Full track list and tour dates below.
