Since 14 January 2013, the whole album has been streamed for free on the guardian.co.uk website.[18]

The first single promoting the album, "Hold Back the Night", had its radio premiere and a video premiere on 1 October 2012.[19][20] However, the video clip "leaked out" a day early (on 30 September 2012).[21]

The second single from the album is the song "These Days Are Mine".[22] The music video for it was released on 26 November 2012.[23] The single was released on 14 January 2013.

The video for "Some Better Day" features John Simm and was released on 8 February 2013.[24]

Before the release of Let Them All In, I Am Kloot asked a British poet, Simon Armitage, to write a few words about this album.[25] Those liner notes are only to be found on the LP edition.


In the opening track ("Bullets") John Bramwell sings with a slight lisp.[26][27] It's the result of an accident that occurred during the time the album was recorded and in which the singer lost some of his lower teeth.[26][27] In some interviews, Bramwell says that it was a speed-boating accident somewhere in Southern France, while in others he calls this version of events a myth.[26][27]
