F-Letter is the third studio album by post-hardcore band Frodus, originally released in 1996 through Double Duece NYC. To fund the recording for the album, Shelby Cinca sold a virtual reality helmet at a Doom tournament held by a now-defunct computer store.[1] The album has been reissued many times on both CD and vinyl formats through a variety of record labels.
