This isn’t the place to find some pretentiously prolific statement. We’re not here to create some ambiguous controversy. Art is important to us. Music, and the ideas and messages we can all choose to convey through this medium, is a powerful tool. It’s not about fashion or status. Challenge each other. Encourage one another. Be passionate about what you are doing. Be a message!

In a time when the hardcore scene has been confined to breakdowns and guitar squeals, and fashion has seemed to become more important than ideas and music, THE BLUE LETTER challenges stereotypes and genre boundaries with explosive textured soundscapes.

THE BLUE LETTER JOIN THE FAMILY

We’re very proud to announce the signing of Sacramento, California’s THE BLUE LETTER to Blood & Ink. We first met and saw THE BLUE LETTER at Cornerstone 2006 and immediately knew we wanted to work with this fantastic band. Not only does their music venture into areas seldom (if ever) touched by Christian bands, but they’re also incredible live.

We’ll be releasing their debut for Blood & Ink, Prima Facie, in July so be sure to keep checking back for more information about what will surely be an awe-inspiring album. In the meantime, visit the band on myspace at: www.myspace.com/theblueletter.
