They're not even allowed in the amazing venues Austin has to offer without supervision, but that didn't keep the Dutch band 'Death Letters' from taking off to Texas last September when only 18 and 19 years old. They were on a mission: recording an album with producer Chris ‘Frenchie’ Smith who has worked with bands from the likes of JET, The Datsuns and The Dandy Warhols. How they got here? Well, not long after their first rehearsal together, drummer Victor and guitarist/singer Duende won a prominent band competition and made their first TV appearance in 2007. Soon after that they recorded their first full-length album, which delivers thirteen solid tracks drenched with rock, blues and a steep dose of punk. The self-titled debut was released in February 2009 throughout The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany and Austria. With their debut out, Death Letters began to play venues and festivals including Paradiso, Zwarte Cross and Paaspop in the Netherlands, the odd show in France as well as several German festivals. Death Letters then toured in Norway in the Summer of 2010 before catching a plane to Austin. After three weeks in the Texan heat, they returned home with a very precious recording due to be released in the Spring of 2011. The upcoming album will have a substantially different vibe than their previous one, drawing on a complex, psychedelic yet melodic punk rock sound.
