"Goooooooodamn this band moves me…[Last
Days of April] know exactly which notes to play in order
to make you fall to your knees. Personally, it's almost
impossible for me to listen to this band without getting
that "butterflies" in the stomach, barrel of vinegar
in the chest feeling, and I'm not the squeamish type."
- Timothy Den Lollipop
"…Last Days of April derive their personality from
the very depths of the soul, and bare the emotional
scars with unbridled passion and uncompromising honesty."
- Michael Farr PunkRocks.net
"This band has a keen understanding of how to make unique
music built around pure emotion and excellent musicianship.
What more could you ask for?" - Modern Fix
Last Days Of April's Karl Larsson has a tremendous
ability to conjure up breathtaking melodies, formulate
hook-filled pop songs and still maintain an innovative,
unique style that virtually defies comparison. By virtue
of Larsson's immense musical talent, Last Days Of
April play glorious, heartfelt synth/guitar pop,
wriggling with gorgeous melodies that snuggle up inside
your soul. It is garage-pop with a makeover. Imagine
the beautiful love-child of The Hives and The
Cardigans, lightly bathed in a kind of melancholic
Americana, that bands such as Grandaddy, Mercury
Rev and Wheat have patented, and sprinkle
it with the young Brian Wilson's sonic sparkle.
This is what makes Last Days Of April special.
Ascend To The Stars is the band's fourth release
and second full-length in the U.S. The title may very
well be an omen of the band's bright future - in fact,
in less than eight weeks, European sales alone surpassed
the worldwide sales of the band's previous album.
Not surprisingly, Last Days Of April has received
critical praise worldwide and has developed a rise in
the United States indie scene. They will not disappoint.
In a word, they are amazing. Brilliant songs, introspective
lyrics, dynamic instrumentation and an undeniable passion
set Last Days Of April apart from their peers.
