We are a musical experience that is best displayed in our live act. Haunting Vocals mixed with tranquil, intelligent guitar lines are enriched with the sound of chill inducing Cello and a rhythm section that brings it all together.

Biography

Last to Begin was formed in January of 2006 in the southeastern Wisconsin/northeastern part of Illinois. It consisted of two members at the time Joshua "Pik" Bublitz who is from Lake County, IL and Eric Laubinger who is from Lake Geneva, WI area. Both members had previous solo projects and both had played in several other bands before meeting. When they first had heard each other play it just seemed like the one thing they were missing musically in their own projects was each other. So they joined together as a band and began writing songs at a incredible rate. They also began playing open mics all over the Chicago area. Eventually this lead to the need for a full band to play shows and release a demo to get their sound out when they weren't playing out somewhere. So they listed an ad in the Chicago Reader and tried out a few drummers and after a couple of different attempts found somebody that was great to work with and seemed to fit right in with their personalities. Everything started to come together and they met Crittle, their cellist, and finally they had enough of a band to start playing shows. They played their first real show at the Beat Kitchen on August 9th, 2006 and that was their only show because a lot of personal issues that kind of brought the whole band to a halt for awhile until January of 2007. In January Pik and Eric decided it was time to put the band back on the market and do something with it. They acquired Jason Marshall as the bass player and set some goals to have a demo ready by March 1st. Well here it is, the demo is 7 songs covering bits from the entire era of Last To Begin. One of the first songs they wrote "How Many Times" to the one of the latest songs they wrote "January 28th". The direction has changed a little but the sound of the band has stayed pretty true. The goals are to play shows, gain a respective following and get a record deal. If nothing else to put out their hearts and souls to the world and hope that someone listens, relates or enjoys what they have done.

Lyrics

January 28th

Written By: Last to Begin

I will not be anything, Only what you know of me
Seperation anxiety, Loss is now controlling me again

I will not be anyone, A shadow in the rising sun
Casting over everyone, I have no pity for anyone

I will not be the same
You took what I gave in vain
I may not see you again
I just don't understand

I don't know what I mean to you, you don't care what you put me through
Farewell, Farewell

Time is pushing on
We wonder what went wrong
I may not see you again
I just don't understand

Keep Pushing me, Keep crushing me
I don't know if I will ever be the same

Unknowingly, controlling me
I'm left to wonder why your jealousy is blind

Your memory is haunting me
I don't know if I will ever be the same

Blind

Written By: Last to Begin

Your precious heart didn't mean a thing to me
Right from the start, didn't mean a thing to me
I was so blind, out of my mind and wasting your time
Yes I was so blind, I had two eyes but they were not mine

Can you feel me now, deep inside tonight?

Your playful spirit couldn't tame my wandering ways
The flame drew you near it but it burned your heart for days
And I, I could have tried but it's hard to try when you're out of your mind
Yes I, I should have tried, but you can't deny, you cut down my pride

Can you feel me now, deep inside tonight?

See how I'm running, See how I fall
The fact that I'm crawling means nothing at all

The future means coping, forgetting the past
Silently hoping the present will last

I know that you're hurting, I know I was wrong
To say that I'm sorry won't change what I've done

So now I'm just left here, alone in my mind
Desperately searching for what I will find

Following This Heartbreak...

Written By: Last to Begin

My love for you is all but gone
Following this heartbreak this song
to remind myself that what I found
is that all we had is gone

You always painted my world for me
This lack of color's brought me down
To A place I've been too many times
A place where everything is lost

Please come paint me a beautiful life...the one i know
Is faded and old
I know you can't change the wrong to right...but I'll settle for
A beautiful lie

My love for you is all but gone
Following this heartbreak this song
to remind myself that what I found
is that all we had is gone

Please come paint me a beautiful life...the one i know
Is faded and old
I know you can't change the wrong to right...but I'll settle for
A beautiful lie
