Last Under The Sun was put together in Birmingham by Mark Badger in 2000. The band has had several line up changes over the years and Mark remains the only one who has been in every line up.
Last under the Sun played its first gig on 9th October 2001, at Manhattens, Hereford, UK with Eggraid and Redshift. The band is based in Birmingham and plays a mixture of punk and hardcore. The band has played all over the place gigging up and down England, Wales and Scotland and in 2004 and 2005 the band went to mainland Europe visiting Holland, Belgium, France and Germany with Sensa Yuma. At the start of 2008 the band ended up working with Pid and Chris and toured Europe as half of the new line up of a reformed Police Bastard.
Last Under The Sun found another new drummer in 2008 called Simon (ex-Rivers Edge who also got roped into playing drums for Police Bastard), and the band has started to work on new material and all the rest. The band hope to release some new recordings in 2009 and tour Europe next.
Peej has put together a video for “Reversa” and “Summers Day” from the album “Gone” which was recorded in 2005 and has used music by Last Under the Sun for a short film called “Dividers.”
