When honesty and brazen creativity are the first bricks laid for a musical release, the bar is set for an outcome that truly delivers the message of the artist. In this case, the artist is FOUR LETTER LIE, and the result is their stunning third release, A New Day. The band has managed to write a record that impresses the toughest critic – themselves - and it is on track to be named their greatest work to date.

Shortly after their signing to Victory Records, FOUR LETTER LIE recorded their first full-length album, Let Your Body Take Over, with producers Michael Birnbaum and Chris Bittner (Coheed and Cambria). The album, which was released in October 2006, would go on to sell over 15,000 copies and gain the band even more national recognition. Throughout the year that followed the release date, the band toured nonstop with acts like Scary Kids Scaring Kids, A Static Lullaby, and Bless the Fall. The band then released their Sophomore record, What A Terrible Thing To Say, on February 19th, 2008 and rounded out the year on the road with the likes of A Skylit Drive, Dance Gavin Dance, Oh Sleeper, Pierce The Veil, Breathe Carolina and Emarosa. In their short time together, FOUR LETTER LIE had already accomplished things other bands wish for their entire career; but still, they knew they could achieve more. “We wanted to write a record we were in love with, not something we felt like we HAD to write” says Nagan. “We had spent almost every single day together touring and growing as a band since that last record. We were ready to take it to the next level.” So, that’s exactly what they set out to do: raise the bar, trump their critics and win over the ears and hearts of even more listeners.

After undergoing a few lineup changes producer Matt Goldman (UnderOath, Copeland) welcomed FOUR LETTER LIE into his Atlanta recording studio for the second time in November 2009. The band couldn’t have been happier. “It’s nice working with a producer who cares about his projects,” Kelly comments, “He definitely understood where we wanted to go with our sound.” Being hundreds of miles away from home galvanized these already hard workers to toil round the clock to accomplish their goal. Four weeks later, A New Day was complete; a darker, harder, more intimate recording that the band was finally ready to present to the masses.

October 13th, 2009 was the day FOUR LETTER LIE unveiled A New Day to the world. It’s an album that has truly made anyone who has ever questioned them forget why. The band has lent their hearts and souls to this gem, as heard on every one of the eleven coming-of-age songs, thus proving the band hasn't skipped a beat.

With LOWER DEFINITION, I AM ABOMINATION and LIFE ON REPEAT
