Las Vegas, NV punk rock band Last Call have announced a November 27 release date for their long-awaited debut LP, Dog Years, which will be the first official release on Broken Arrow Collective, the newly launched organization co-founded by the band and other friends. Dog Years was produced, engineered, mixed & mastered by Paul Miner (New Found Glory, Fireworks, Thrice, Death By Stereo) at Buzzbomb Sound Labs in Orange, CA between March and November 2012.
A new track titled “Bones” is now available for listening consumption below:
Last Call has spent the last year a bit quieter than usual. With the release of Stay On The Outside in summer 2011, the band spent the remainder of the year touring the country in its support. Building a steady buzz and momentum, the band eagerly began recording their debut full length with friend & producer Paul Miner in March 2012. Shortly after beginning the record, the band split from Mightier Than Sword Records, throwing an unexpected wrench into the entire process, and prolonging the record’s release.
On November 27, the band will be releasing their debut full length Dog Years digitally and on CD in the United States. The record will be the first official release from the Broken Arrow Collective, an organization of sorts including members of Last Call and friends who aim is to promote equality and spread awareness by way of music. Dog Years will also be available on cassette from the band’s friends at Immunity Tape Co.
Drummer Adam Blasco explains, “This record is about everything that we’ve been dealing with over the last couple of years, both individually and as a band. We’ve always written songs for ourselves, but this record is the one that we want to reach as many people as possible. It’s definitely the most emotionally involved record that we’ve put out, and we’re singing about things that have never found a way out of us until now. It’s an amazing feeling. If one person finds a message in these songs that touches them emotionally, we’ve accomplished our goals. The Broken Arrow Collective is something that has been on my mind for about the last year or so. This record means a fucking lot to me and the rest of these dudes involved, so this is the perfect time to make this idea a real tangible thing. We’re very proud of everything we’ve created, and couldn’t be more psyched to finally share it with everyone.”
Last Call will be announcing a December record release show in their hometown which will be followed by a few tour dates on the west coast. Early 2013 will bring a nationwide tour as well as a UK/European release of the LP via City Of Gold Records.
