Biography

Formed in 2001, Australian rockers Last Years Hero are a band that are on a steady road of progression, as songwriters, performers and as a talented act that are determined to turn their dreams into reality.

The history of the band is short and sweet. Their debut release Start Over EP was released in November 2002, enjoys a few spins on Triple J and Triple M and ends up selling just over 2000 copies in Australia before getting licensed by Japanese punk rock specialists, Big Mouth (Brand New, Yellowcard , One Dollar Short) who sell a further 6000 copies in Japan and then getting a track on a US compilation put out by Nice Guy Records which put them alongside bands like Midtown, Blueline Medic and Strike Anywhere.

The release and success of Start Over (2002) would see the band work hard on the live front in their hometown of Perth, and providing the foundations for their 1st tour of Australias eastern states. Hard work on the live front resulted in great turnouts to the bands shows resulting in support slots throughout 2003 and early 2004 with high profile international and national bands such as No Use For A Name, Guttermouth, Frenzal Rhomb, Bodyjar, Useless ID, Yellowcard, Strung Out, Less Than Jake and One Dollar Short, plus performances at the Cosmonautical and Yak It Up youth festivals performing to crowds of over 5000.

2004 was a massive year for the band.

    That's always the way it is with me...I discover a GREAT band, and I later learn they aren't together anymore. Why? WHY?
