Lastwatch formed only months before catching the attention of award winning producer Travis Wyrick (10 Years, Pillar, POD, Disciple). Together they forged a signature sound that blends heavy guitars with synthetic and orchestral landscapes, resulting in the release of their debut album "Leave A Light On" in January of 2013. Their driving, mainstream sound has earned comparisons to Evanescence, Red, Flyleaf, Skillet, Breaking Benjamin, and Fireflight. Showcasing the band's use of crushing synths and catchy hooks, the album's first single "The Countdown" quickly became the most requested song on Fuel Radio and Christianrock.net internet radio, receiving airplay on several terrestrial stations as well. Other songs destined for radio play include the ultra catchy "Leave A Light On" and the orchestral anthem "Guiding My Way", along with heavy rockers "Not Yours Anymore" and "Long For You", while the intensely personal "Somehow" offers listeners a chance to hear a softer side of the group.
Embarking on the journey before them, the members of Lastwatch left their lives behind to begin touring full time in December 2012, logging 3 national tour runs in the first three months. Relentless touring combined with an aggressive online marketing campaign is paying off for Lastwatch. With over 10,000 fans on Facebook and thousands of YouTube views, Lastwatch has created a rapidly growing fan base that spans the globe in a matter of months. Having experience at 2012's Atlantafest and Ichthus festivals, the group is looking forward to touring straight until the 2013 festival season, where they are expected to turn heads at each of the major rock festivals.
Originally brought together by what they felt was a calling from God to share a message of hope and change, Ashley (Lead Vocals) and Jon Miller (Guitar / Backing Vocals) soon connected with a skilled guitarist and songwriting partner in Matt Hanna (Guitar). The group found the two remaining members in Ashley's sister and brother in law, Andrea (Bass / Backing Vocals) and Zach Day (Drums). After completion of "Leave A Light On" and several tours, Andrea and Zach felt God calling them to a different path and parted ways with the band, leaving vacancies that were soon filled by the incredible energy brought by Stephanie Lane (Bass / Backing Vocals) and Krislyn Woolley (Drums). Lastwatch is pushing, moving, striving to achieve the next level with every step they take.
