"One of the most brutal, honest, and compelling releases of 2013" - Absolutepunk

"A striking album from one of punk's most valuable bands" - Rock Sound

"...stitches up Defeater's past while pointing toward fresh dynamics and future chapters to come." - Alternative Press

Defeater released their third full-length album, Letters Home, today.  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. 

In support of Letters Home, Defeater is out on the second half of the Vans Warped Tour through August 4th with dates taking them back east through August 11th - a full routing can be found below.
