The Last Battle - calm before the storm.

Edinburgh-based The Last Battle are gearing up for one last epic charge on Thurso.

The five-piece folk-rock band will play the Y-Not Bar And Grill on Friday August 22nd.

Formed in 2009, The Last Battle have released two albums - 2010’s ‘Heart Of The Land, Soul Of The Sea’ and 2014’s ‘Lay Your Burden Down’, as well as handful of singles and E.P’s.

New album ‘Lay Your Burden Down’ was written and recorded on the outskirts of Edinburgh, with the death of a close friend during the sessions having a big influence over new material, and shaping the album as a whole.

After the completion of the record, and following the dissolution of the label 17 Seconds Records who released their debut, the band took to the crowd funding website Indiegogo, to raise funds to release it themselves.

The campaign was a runaway success and has allowed the band to finance everything from the artwork, mastering, photography and pressing of ‘Lay Your Burden Down’.
