The post-rock group Letters To Part’s full-length album, A Human Curse, was born out of vulnerability and tragedy. After the loss of their singer/guitarist and lead singer Y’shua Ortiz-Escobedo’s cousin, Ortiz-Escobedo began to write songs inspired by his grief. This eventually lead to the band’s first EP in 2012. Now they’re back with their full-length debut album.
A Human Curse is about the personal struggles people often face in life and the private battles we all fight with ourselves. The overall theme of the album is about how we cope with living in a world that offers so many sources of anxiety. Y’shua Ortiz-Escobedo says, “It’s a story about understanding true heartache, and trying to cope. Through vices that we all use. Trying to relieve some sort of symptom.”
That powerful message is hinted at in the album’s first single, “Six Months,” which is a song that tells a story of abuse. Letters To Part recently signed with Wilhelm Records to release A Human Curse, and in celebration of their first single and the upcoming album release, they are heading on tour in July. A Human Curse drops on July 7th, 2017, and you can catch Letters To Part on the road after that to see it performed live. They’ll be stopping in Pittsburgh and Philly, so mark your calendars!
