Ruins is the long awaited new release from the influential dark rock band The Last Dance. Notable for
their dynamic live performances, superb musicianship, and a charismatic presence that favours
substance over glamour and gimmicks, The Last Dance burst onto the international underground music
scene in the mid 1990’s and quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
The veteran band, which consists of founding members guitarist Rick Joyce, vocalist Jeff Diehm,
longtime bassist Peter J. Gorritz and Tom Coyne on drums, has always been critically acclaimed and
appreciated by core fans and those lucky enough to catch one of their live performances. Nevertheless,
they’ve flown somewhat under the radar as far as large-scale success and notoriety are concerned,
especially during those years when "live" bands who were not primarily electronic or dance club oriented
were not particularly in vogue in the underground & alternative music scene.
With Ruins, the band’s longtime label Mystine Records in conjunction with Strobelight Records hope to
give those who may have missed them in the past another opportunity to experience the unique energy
and enigmatic sound of The Last Dance. With many of the current crop of young goth and alternative
bands being influenced by punk and metal, the TLD sound is fresher than ever. It starts with an
aggressive core of soaring guitars, passionate vocals and a relentless driving rhythm section and adds
additional instrumentation or electronic flourishes as needed for variety and "spice", but always remains
true to the original post-punk spirit and influences that first brought these superb musicians together.
The old saying "what goes around, comes around" is as true as ever and The Last Dance are ready to
bring the new release Ruins and their unique brand of dark rock to the world stage, so that listeners can
once again "Experience The Last Dance"!
