LETDOWN. - Grapples With A Toxic Relationship On New Anthem “Head Check”

Big Loud Rock and powerhouse vocalist/songwriter Letdown. are excited to announce the release of “Head Check” the latest alt-rock ripper from the Chicago/Nashville-based musician. Written with Blame My Youth frontman Sean Van Vleet, “Head Check” details a much needed separation from a tumultuous and unstable union, and is a track that serves as yet another cornerstone to Letdown.’s voice in the Alternative space. “‘Head Check’ is a song about coming to terms with a really bad relationship that you were in, much like marking the end of the emotional roller coaster” Letdown. says. “When you get off, you never want to take that ride again — you’re done and finished and laughing about why you ever got on in the first place. A cathartic realization has taken place".

“Head Check” comes on the heels of the release of "Crying In The Shower", Letdown.’s seven-song debut showcase that has already amassed over 50 million streams and a collection whose title track is now currently within the Top 30 on Alternative airplay.

Letdown. (period included) may have started as a pandemic project for Blake Coddington, but the Chicago/Nashville-based rocker is in a very different place in 2023. Having spent the last three years cultivating a fervent fan base through a number of single releases and emerging as a striking live act — finally bringing his music into the physical lives of his online fans across several sold-out, headlining shows this past year — Coddington is rapidly growing his presence away from the internet for the first time in Letdown.’s short history.

The powerful vocals and emotional lyrics over catchy, upbeat drums and guitars originally served as a cathartic way for the songwriter to express himself while working a dead-end job that he hated. But 2022 saw Letdown. being signed to Big Loud Rock and moving beyond his beginnings as a viral, at-home musician. This year, however, represents a whole new start for the vocalist, or as Coddington himself puts it: “It’s Season II of Letdown., and it’s definitely the biggest chapter yet".

It was just three years ago that he began throwing videos on YouTube expecting to get a few hundred views, yet now he’s become a known and respected musical commodity both in-person and online with over 640K followers and 5.1M likes on TikTok, 32+ million views on his YouTube channel, over 100+ million overall artist streams and editorial playlisting from the likes of Spotify’s All New Rock, New Noise, Rock Out and Rock Hard.

Chronicling Coddington’s internal struggle as he searches for answers in times of darkness, uncertainty and self-doubt, the recently released "Crying In The Shower" EP features a collection of stadium-sized singles led by the title track that is the perfect example of the wild, emotional ride that Letdown. enjoys taking his fans on. Behind the reactive hook and catchy rhythm, Letdown. navigates listeners through the experience and inner turmoil of trying to get over someone you can’t forget. With the release of the EP, Coddington remains thrilled for the development of Letdown. as well as having the opportunity to connect with those who have found solace in his powerful online community.
