Full Biography:

Since forming in 2005, Letters Burning has yielded many impressive moments spread between concerts and resume building activities, tangibly enhancing the band's super-charged aggressive pop rock sounds that were first introduced on the debut EP Almost Midnight (recorded at Infrasonic Sound Studios, known for projects by The Mars Volta and Saosin) with "California Song" helping them become a finalist on the Diskmakers IMWS contest and chosen for their compilation CD. A year later they introduced their sophomore EP "Simple Thoughts and Tragedy", featuring production by Gold record/Platinum download certified producer Sean O'Keefe (Fall Out Boy, Hawthorne Heights, Plain White T's: "Hey There Delilah" and Less Than Jake) which earned them multiple plays on the "Locals Only" show of the world famous rock radio station KROQ with their single Critic's Last Stand. Soon after that they were selected as a fan favorite in the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands competition, which resulted in a slot on the 2008 Van's Warped Tour. Additional attention came at a rapid pace, including thousands of plays on podcasts and internet radio stations across the globe (Jango, Pandora, Last.fm etc...), and the number one unsigned band spot on Purevolume several months in a row. Even Taco Bell took notice by providing hundreds of dollars of free food through their program which recognizes unsigned bands on the rise; Red Bull has similarly provided free goods to the band and fans.

In Early 2009 Letters Burning released their 3rd EP "Attracted to Disaster" which landed them airplay on KROQ yet again with their single "Strip Me Down". During the summer the band put together a 50 In-Store Hot Topic Tour throughout California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington to help promote their new release. Between then and now, Letters Burning has played literally everywhere in the famed regional scene, including legendary Hollywood venues like The Whiskey, The Knitting Factory, The Key Club, Viper Room, and Anaheim's Chain Reaction, The Beatles Revolution Lounge at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, not to mention Indie 103.1 FM's Universal Citywalk Summer Concert Series (including a live radio interview with the band) two years in a row, and Music Connection Magazine's "Best Kept Secrets of L.A. Showcase" (which received overwhelming praise in the same publication) and a prominent appearance in a Fox 11 Los Angeles news special on "scene" music. Thanks to all the aforementioned, Letters Burning garnered over 160,000 MySpace plays and counting.

Letters Burning consistently breaks down barriers on and offstage, including personal responses to every fan's email and to their Cookie Cutter Killer Fan Club, a continuous string of contests, including private shows, and work with charities such as Invisible Children, 4NOLA (Hurricane Katrina victims) and Stand Up For Kids (which presented the band an award for their involvement). The group also promotes at every pertinent local gig and regularly takes pictures with fans (who can find them posted on their interactive MySpace page). Most recently, the band has started to play many high school and college shows as a means of reaching a wider audience and plans on setting up another regional tour incorporating Hot Topic stores, schools, and venue shows.
