Letting Go is alternative metal band Earshot's debut album. "Get Away" and "Not Afraid" were released as singles and were minor hits with each having their own music video. “Get Away” reached #4 on the U.S. Active Rock Charts and stayed in the top 100 for over 64 weeks. Letting Go reached #82 on The Billboard 200.
Vocalist/guitarist Wil Martin mentioned "we just played around town and recorded demos at like friends houses and studios and we only did that one time with one song which actually spawned all the label interest. And it's obvious recording in someone's basement to a multi million-dollar studio because you need the space and some of the technology to be able to pick up the various things and instruments."
"A lot of the songs are about relationships or about having a bad day, where nothing seems to go right, or where you just dwell on the negative." - Wil Martin
