Bio

Melbourne-based melodic metal outfit The Last Martyr have returned with a new single, 'Like A Ghost', a track that tackles the contemplation of giving up on goals and aspirations when the going gets tough, and overcoming the negative thoughts we all struggle with. The band has also announced they'll be jumping on the Melbourne date of Bare Bones East coast tour to launch the new single live!

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Chris Lalic (Windwaker), 'Like A Ghost' is a hard-hitting tune from start to finish with a heavy, haunting undertone that compliments the theme of the track. Vocalist Monica Strut's impressive vocals are flaunted with soaring highs and harsh screams that are utilised in a chorus that'll get you humming along by the second half!

Monica explains the thoughts behind the single in saying that "Like A Ghost is about a conversation with someone contemplating giving up on a lifelong dream. At first it was written about having that conversation with someone else but later on I realised that it is also a conversation that many of us frequently have with ourselves.

The Last Martyr's previous singles 'Into The Black', 'Stay Awake' and 'Fear' saw the band achieve national radio play on triple j (Stay Awake on both The Racket and Home and Hosed) and rotation on The Faction. 'Stay Awake' also attracted the attention of Butcher Babies' Heidi, who added them to her 'Sisters That Slay' playlist alongside the world's best female voices in heavy music!

The Last Martyr will serve up their specialty mix of intricate musicianship and soaring vocals when they jump up to support Bare Bones at Melbourne's Stay Gold alongside FANGZ on Saturday December 7.

It’s me, 15 year old tommy sitting in the backseat of a friend’s car while their mum drives us home from the beach with the windows open and Lacuna Coil absolutist pumping from the speakers and I love this.
