If I'm The Devil is the follow up to letlive.'s critically-lauded 2013 release, The Blackest Beautiful. And the time spent between that and 2016 are defined by the band's engagement with the griot lineage of Saul Williams and Ta-Nehisi Coates, the deaths of Eric Garner and Mike Brown, the social pathologies that led to Ferguson, Missouri and divisive redlining policies that are functionally domestic terrorism. And with those ideas letlive. is a band that aims to bring political messages into rock music again. "Our music is very left-leaning. It's very clear I have a large disdain for the way a lot of systems are working and our society's incapability to unravel," front man Jason Butler states.

Jason Butler (vocals), RJ Johnson (bass), Jeff Sahyoun (guitar), and Loniel Robinson (drums) recorded If I'm The Devil… at Kingsize Studiolabs in Los Angeles, with co-producer Justyn Pilbrow. Guitarist Jeff Sahyoun explains, "We collectively wanted the audio realm we have spent years creating to give birth to a digestible powerhouse of modern sound." It is a strident, principled and heavy studio work created by four uniquely creative individuals known for letting their passion unfurl onstage. Those who have witnessed a letlive. show can attest that it is a connective, reactive and provocative experience that transcends the standard band performance and stage/audience dynamic. That explosive energy and fury is fully expressed on If I'm the Devil… As Butler states, "I feel we've spent years developing the idea that is letlive. and with this record I feel we have finally developed the SOUND that is letlive.."
