Supporting Gary Barlow …..
On August 30th 2013 Last Breath had the honour of being invited to support Gary Barlow and Eliza Doolittle at the world-famous Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On event, where they were the only unsigned band performing that night. Last Breath played a 30 minute set immediately before Eliza Doolittle, and left the audience wanting more! They even featured on the TV news that evening, and were invited to play an acoustic session in-store at HMV following the success of their performance
Four become Five......
During 2014 the band had a line-up change and became a five piece and subsequent gigs have included the International Pop Overthrow Festival playing both stages of the world famous Cavern Club and the Cavern Pub in Liverpool, in both 2014 and 2015 and various music venues and festivals in their local area.
The new line-up consists of original members James Parkinson on lead vocals and guitar, and Tom Parkinson on lead guitar and backing vocals, along with the return of their previous bass player Lynden Garrad, Harleigh-Jay Roberts on keyboards and backing vocals, and Pako Hidalgo on drums
Heads Or Tails ......
Much of 2015 was spent writing and recording their eagerly anticipated debut album.
The official launch of the album was hosted by HMV Blackpool on Saturday 12th September 2015, when the CD of "Heads Or Tails" was released and the band performed a live set as well as a meet and greet and autograph signing.
The album was also released in all the major digital stores such as iTunes on the same day.
The band released their third official music video to coincide with the album release, featuring "Walk Away" from the album and shot on location on the Fylde Coast (watch it at the top of this page)

Where it all began ...
Last Breath started out in 2003 when brothers James and Tom and 2 friends in high school, started jamming covers and then playing the occasional gig. James and Tom then started song-writing and since 2007 the band became predominantly an originals band with a couple of covers in their live set.
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 self-release of the single “Under Her Control”, and the band's first official music video, with special guest actors Hayley Tamaddon (Coronation St, Dancing On Ice, Emmerdale) and Daniel Brocklebank (Coronation Street, Shakespeare in Love, Eastenders, Merlin), filmed on location at the stunning Carr Hall Castle.
The video caught the attention of several top music channels including Kerrang!TV and NME. (watch it below!)
