Letdown. Announces Seven-Song Debut EP ‘Crying In The Shower’

Big Loud Rock, the new alternative/rock imprint of Big Loud Records, and Letdown. announce the Friday, February 24 release of Crying In The Shower, the Chicago/Nashville-based songwriter and vocalist’s seven-song debut EP. Documenting Blake Coddington of Letdown.’s internal struggle as he searches for answers in times of darkness, uncertainty and self-doubt, Crying In The Shower features a collection of stadium-sized singles that include the title track, the anthemic “Go To Hell”, “Empty”, “Shipwreck”, and “Ugly”, a soaring, pop-rock belter featuring Kelsy Karter & the Heroines that encompasses the types of thoughts related to self-image and how we perceive ourselves. On each track, Letdown. navigates listeners through the experiences and inner turmoil that has come to inform his passionate songwriting.

Letdown. 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 fanbase 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.

As for the new EP, pushing forth a collection of seven songs is still a bit of a new experience for Coddington, but he 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. “Getting to put out something like an EP seems so classic to me, which makes me really excited about it.” he summarizes. “I’m honestly just excited that people won’t have to select another song after each one and can just ride the wave. I think we’ve really curated it in a way that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster — in the best way possible.”
