LAST BULLET – “RUNNIN’ OUT OF TIME”
LOVE. LUST. ILLUSION.(2012)
There is one Last Bullet, Toronto, and it’s coming for you. If you haven’t heard of this band, take note. Better yet, listen to this – today’s track of the day – Last Bullet’s “Runnin’ Out Of Time”.
In frontman Bryan Fontez’s own words …
Here’s the thing… I could use this moment to give you a cookie-cutter style, formulaic blurb about all of our accolades, accomplishments, tours and experiences, using a ton of adjectives to describe how cool we are and why you should listen to our music, but I’m not gonna do that. Instead I’m just gonna shoot straight with you, assume that you’re not an idiot and that you’d like to know the truth about our band, so here goes…
We try our absolute hardest to embody every single aspect of live rock music that people genuinely love. We are lovers of music ourselves, and we enjoy being entertained more than anything. We believe that every live show is it’s own unique experience that is governed by the setting, acoustics and energy of the crowd. We believe that every song should sound better than it does on the album, every single time, and that solely playing your instrument – no matter how well – is a massive disrespect to your audience.
Sight is one of our most important senses, so as a rule of thumb we always put on the type of show that even a deaf crowd would appreciate. We put the onus of responsibility on ourselves to get your feet stomping, your hips shaking and your head banging. We live and die by that creed.
Last Bullet is more than just a band, it’s an experience. We might play rock, but our music is for everyone. We don’t care how you look, where you’re from, or what you listen to, we will catch your attention and keep it, while raising both your pulse and the temperature of the venue. If that also happens to encourage an epidemic of stink-face, casual sexual encounters or increased bar sales, then so be it.
With a DIY mentality and a burning passion to make a career out of what we love doing, we’ve been able to accomplish some truly amazing things in the 6 years that we’ve been together. Most recently we’ve been hard at work on our new EP, in an attempt to produce the best music we’ve ever made. As easy as it is to be biased of your own work, we truly believe in what we’ve been able to accomplish in the studio this summer with our friend Brian Moncarz, and we genuinely feel optimistic about the future of these songs and ultimately, this band.
