Official press release:

Massachusetts' Defeater released their third full-length album, Letters Home, on July 16th and landed at #72 on the Top 200 and #1 on the Vinyl Chart on yesterday's Billboard. Defeater's heaviest body of music thus far, Letters Home features powerfully intricate guitar instrumentation, colossal-sounding drums, and vocalist Derek Archambault's voice sounding more ferocious than ever before. These ten new tracks are heavy and haunting, while lyrically poignant and continuing the story of a working class family living in post-WWII America. Letters Home revolves around the father of two brothers that listeners were introduced to in two of Defeater's prior releases (Travels and most recently Empty Days & Sleepless Nights), giving a background to the character and seeing some of the events from those past albums through his eyes.
