Last Breath Short Info

On August 30th they had the honour of being invited to support Gary Barlow and Eliza Doolittle at the world-famous Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On event, the only unsigned band performing that night Last Breath played a 45 minute set immediately before Eliza Doolittle, and left the audience wanting more! They even featured on the TV news that evening!

Feedback ….
Following their set at the Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On, the band were inundated with requests to pose for photos, autographs etc and their Twitter feed and Facebook page were flooded with compliments, fan photos, even marriage proposals! Many of the messages asked where they could buy the music and people couldn’t believe they were unsigned.

Media ….
Last Breath’s music has been receiving radio airplay worldwide, they have been featured artists on various stations, played live sessions (full electric and acoustic) including BBC Introducing, and have done interviews both here and via Skype to the USA.

The Future ……
The band have new songs written and are recording them in preparation for the release of an album or EP, later this year.
They are looking for the right label to release this, having previously self-released through their management’s label onto iTunes, Amazon etc , they now feel ready to be signed and are totally committed to their music.
They are looking to play venues, festivals and events across the UK, either as a one-off gig or as part of a tour, and the Illuminations Switch-on showcased how perfect they are for the bigger stages.

Last Breath are ready to move up to the next level and we are all working hard to make that happen as soon as possible. Their enthusiastic fan-base is growing daily and want to see more!

Looking Back ...
Last Breath started out in 2003 when 4 friends in high school, who shared a love of music, started jamming covers and then playing the occasional gig. Brothers James (lead vocals and guitar) and Tom Parkinson (lead guitar and backing vocals) discovered their talent for song-writing which they developed over the years and since 2007 the band became predominantly an originals band with a couple of covers in their live set.
Winners ...

Fast forward to the start of 2011 when the band joined Aspire Music Management, and went from strength to strength including winning 1st prize at the North West Battle of the Bands (run by Lancashire Council), and then the RNLI Secret Sessions Competition which resulted in them supporting Benjamin Francis Leftwich with their Acoustic set

Celebrity Video ...
Another eventful year in 2012 which included the release of their 6th single on iTunes, “Under Her Control”, with an official music video, in which the band’s co-stars were special guests TV actress & celebrity Hayley Tamaddon and award winning TV and movie actor Daniel Brocklebank, filmed at a Millionaire’s castle home.
The video of “Under Her Control” caught the attention of several top music channels including Kerrang!TV and NME.

Charity Single ...

For Christmas 2012 the band wrote and recorded their first Christmas song “Jingle All The Way” (that video is also on their youtube channel) and donated all proceeds from the sale of the single to Brian House Children’s Hospice. The band regularly support worthy causes and perform at many charity events
2013 Highlights …..

August 2013 saw the band celebrating two major milestones in the Last Breath musical journey.
