"Music promoter"

"Bristol's finest pop-punk" - Tim Bailey

"Venue Magazine"

"With contagious exuberance, Last Rights bring Muse-like heft and stadium-huge howlalong refrains. 50-odd teens pogo as one, glowsticks fly overhead. They've an insouciant fruitloop guitarist, a beaming, fret-dancing bassman and a frontman radiating likeability. Soon enough the stage is gleefully invaded, every mouth bawling the words. Of course, crowd-uniting choruses never go amiss, but it's as a reminder of how purely fucking fun rock 'n' roll can be that the Rights really deliver" - Mike White

"BBC Radio One Switch"

"I feel like my ears have just had a vast array of up-beatness! Amazing!" - Nick Grimshaw


Last Rights released their debut five track EP 'The New Take On Teenage Heartbreak' in 2010. It sold out in the first month and tracks off the EP have been played on radio stations such as Radio One, BBC Bristol Introducing, BCFM and Newport City Radio.



Last Rights are a Pop-Punking five-some from the UK, consisting of: Matt, Andy, Tom, Xris and Joe, that started in early 2010 with a high, getting featured on the UK's International Radio One show. They were featured for a week as BBC Switch's 'House Band' (hosted by famous DJ's Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw), which consisted of having a direct link to the band's Myspace URL through the BBC Switch website, a phone interview live on air, a demo of a track played and Last Rights' Radio One jingle which the band recorded specifically for the show.

A buzzing Last Rights began with a plan to boldly pick up where the much loved American Pop-Punk band: 'Fall Out Boy' left off. After the band split, Last Rights spotted a prominent gap in the teenage Rock, mainstream music market for a love-able and friendly band that deliver catchy, memorable, fun, energetic and (most importantly of all) powerful music to the teenage masses.

Shortly after, Last Rights succeeded in doing just this... Last Rights hit the Bristol music scene with resounding impact. Last Rights put on show after show of lively and crowd engaging performances that left regulars bouncing and howling along to memorable lines and newbies awe-struck in the moment and wanting more.

Following this, Last Rights realised they needed to get some credible support in order to grasp the industry's attention. Armed with some tasty quotes from Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw, the band contacted various music related press publications to add some reviews to their collection. Julian Owen (Lead music editor of Bristol and Bath Venue magazine) responded to the band's request and sent out his fellow colleague Mike White for a live review of Last Rights. After the gig, Mike White reported back his findings stating that "With contagious exuberance, Last Rights bring Muse-like heft and stadium-huge howlalong refrains."

Realising that Last Rights really are something new and exciting to the scene, Julian Owen invited the band out for an interview for the main music feature for the magazine. Julian Owen in turn confirmed that Last Rights really do have a feel for "strong hooks, Pop dynamics, a clear professional attitude, attention to detail" and confirmed that the international support is due to the bands ability to craft "the kind of sound that people want to unite around."

Overwhelmed with the support, the band decided to get some tidy profile photos sorted and released the "eye-grabbingly titled" debut EP 'The New Take On Teenage Heartbreak'. Last Rights' EP launch sold out The Louisiana and in turn sold out of 100 hard copies within the first month.

Last Rights have played at all major Bristol venues and festivals such as: The Colston Hall, 02 Academy, Bristol Harbour Festival, Youth4Youth Festival, The Croft, The Fleece, The Louisiana, The Cooler, The Thunderbolt and Motion. Supporting acts such as: The Blackout, Eliza Doolittle and Jody Has A Hitlist.

Finally Last Rights now aim to take their career one step closer to world domination by releasing a debut single and to keep touring relentlessly in order to play to their already developed fan bases in destinations such as: Brighton, London, Norwich, Hull, York, Dundee, Glasgow, Lincolnshire, Newcastle, Liverpool, Yeovil, Bristol, Weymouth, Ireland, France, Iceland, Australia, Canada and the US!
