Check out another new track from Letters Home, "Rabbit Foot", streaming now in conjunction with album pre-order at

A band known for their captivating and comprehensive storytelling just as much as their elaborate and complex music, Massachusetts' Defeater are gearing up to release their third full-length album, Letters Home, on July 16th. 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. Letters Home is legitimately Defeater's heaviest body of music thus far - featuring powerfully intricate guitar instrumentation, colossal-sounding drums, and vocalist Derek Archambault's voice sounding more ferocious than ever before. 

Letters Home is scheduled to hit stores on July 16th, 2013.  Check Defeater out on the road July 11th through August 4th on the second half of the Vans Warped Tour.
