Cleveland is a city steeped in disappointment, in despair, in folly, it’s the sort of city you can count on to let you down. Maturing in this sort of area is not without its silver linings though… Coming up in Cleveland instills a sense of grit, resiliency, and white knuckle determination. LAST GASP is a band that embodies these attributes. Despite an existence plagued by ups and downs, the band has embodied Cleveland’s unique “you’ve gotta be tough” attitude and continued to push through a series of setbacks and bad luck since their inception. The departure of their entire rhythm section in 2022, a seemingly devastating blow at the time, wound up breathing new life into the band. The addition of new drummer Tony Robinson and bassist Joe Kepich solidified the bands foundation while guitarist Dave Kuhlman assumed a more significant role in the bands song writing. With the lineup rounded out by vocalist Ryan Hardwick, the band reemerged with a heavier sound that is equally polished, visceral and raw.
This progression and evolution is captured on Who Wants to Die Tonight?, LAST GASP’s first LP on L.A. based WAR Records. Mixing equal parts of early AFI, with harder edged bands like Rotting Out, Allegiance, Panic, and Right Brigade, Who Wants to Die Tonight? captures a band firing at all cylinders and creating a sound forged from influences of the past while still retaining a modern sound. Recorded at the acclaimed Spyder Studios with engineer Ben Schiegal (Ringworm, It Dies Today, Machine Gun Kelly), mixed and mastered by Nick Jett (Terror), and featuring artwork and layout by David Maynard. The album is rounded out by a guest vocal spot from Cleveland native, Don Foose (Spudmonsters), who adds his unique vocal styling to the track “Seizure The Day.” LAST GASP’s Who Wants to Die Tonight? will be released Halloween 2023 on WAR Records.
