“If you think casinos the size of a small town and gallon-sized mixed drink holders are the only impressive things to come out of Las Vegas, then you haven’t heard Last Call’s solid punk rock sounds. The foursome have officially dropped their new album, Dog Years, via their own Broken Arrow Collective imprint, and it’s reminding us of all the reasons why we love the genre.”- Purevolume
Las Vegas, NVpunk rock band Last Call have posted a FREE holiday song titled “The Duke’s Real Name Was Marion Morrison” at:
A Message from Last Call:
“We originally wrote ‘Duke’ for Punks In Vegas’ 2011 holiday compilation. We decided that we wanted to release it proper this year, and we recorded it in my basement and sent the tracks to our good buddy Paul Miner to mix and master. After a very long year, we’d like to thank everyone who’s supported us and our new record. It’s been a great way to close out the year and bring in the new.
Happy Holidays from Last Call.”
Last Call’s long-awaited new LP Dog Years is also out now via their own imprint Broken Arrow Collective. A hometown record release show is confirmed for Jan. 5th at the Knight Hall in Vegas. Offering support will be Caravels, Heart to Heart, Stickup Kid, The Letter You,Alaska and Dreamcatchers.
Dog Years was produced, engineered, mixed & mastered by Paul Miner (New Found Glory, Fireworks, Thrice, Death By Stereo) at Buzzbomb Sound Labs inOrange,CA between March and November 2012.
Last Call has spent the last year a bit quieter than usual. With the release of “Stay On The Outside” in summer 2011, the band spent the remainder of the year touring the country in its support. Building a steady buzz and momentum, the band eagerly began recording their debut full length with friend & producer Paul Miner in March 2012. Shortly after beginning the record, the band split from Mightier Than Sword Records, throwing an unexpected wrench into the entire process, and prolonging the record’s release.
Dog Years marks the first official release from the Broken Arrow Collective, an organization of sorts including members of Last Call and friends who aim is to promote equality and spread awareness by way of music. Dog Years will also be available on cassette from the band’s friends at Immunity Tape Co.
Drummer Adam Blasco explains, “This record is about everything that we’ve been dealing with over the last couple of years, both individually and as a band. We’ve always written songs for ourselves, but this record is the one that we want to reach as many people as possible. It’s definitely the most emotionally involved record that we’ve put out, and we’re singing about things that have never found a way out of us until now. It’s an amazing feeling. If one person finds a message in these songs that touches them emotionally, we’ve accomplished our goals. The Broken Arrow Collective is something that has been on my mind for about the last year or so. This record means a fucking lot to me and the rest of these dudes involved, so this is the perfect time to make this idea a real tangible thing. We’re very proud of everything we’ve created, and couldn’t be more psyched to finally share it with everyone.”
Early 2013 will bring a nationwide tour as well as a UK/European release of the LP via City OfGold Records.
