Last July are a Dark Romantic/Electro-Goth band from the East of England, featuring ex-members of Rome Burns and All Living Fear, who blend dark electronics with driving guitars and strong passionate vocals.
Initially formed as a two-piece, Last July quickly gained a following after playing to a packed audience at the Resolution Hotel during Whitby Goth Weekend in October 2009, closely followed by a favourable article in Unscene Magazine. After a number of gigs across the country they released their dιbut EP ‘Nothing Else But You‘ gaining welcoming reviews and airplay on internet radio. In 2011 Last July’s sound and stage presence increased tenfold with the addition of Nevla (ex-Rome Burns/All living Fear) on guitar. The band went from strength to strength with a string of successful gigs including festival appearances and support slots with some all-time goth greats.The following year saw them embark on recording their first full-length album ‘A True Story of a Lie‘ before going on to increase in number, welcoming new bass player H (ex-Rome Burns) into the fold. A very successful gig on the main stage at Whitby Goth Weekend marked the culmination of their best year so far.
Heading into the new year infused with confidence and with the writing of their next album already producing strong material, you can expect to see a lot more of Last July in 2013.
