London hardcore's legacy of creativity stretches back over the last couple of decades, and LAST ORDERS are the latest band to continue the tradition of musicians uniting to form new projects and keep the scene alive.

With a line-up that includes members of Ironed Out, Proven, Dropset, Idle Hands, Tantrum and two of the original members of Cold Hard Truth, LAST ORDERS defy any expectations of how they will sound.

Their 2018 demo tape is 4 tracks of raging, fast, and occasionally melodic hardcore punk, and they have already recorded for their next release, a split CD with Postal (USA) to be released on Rucktion Records in November 2019.

Comparable to Knuckledust, Warzone or Wisdom in Chains , LAST ORDERS' short and to the point style displays plenty of their own personality as they offer a fresh and sometimes light-hearted perspective on a variety of topics.

Making serious points but never taking themselves too seriously, they proudly fly the flag for straight up old school working class hardcore.

Rucktion Records is proud to present its latest release, a transatlantic split CD between London's up and coming old school heroes LAST ORDERS, and Ohio, USA's crossover warriors POSTAL.

Featuring 5 tracks from each band, this 2-piece combo is packed full of meaty riffs, relatable lyrics and working class pride and attitude.

Typically for London hardcore, LAST ORDERS have an impressive resume of members, coming from acts such as IRONED OUT, PROVEN, DROPSET, IDLE HANDS, and featuring two of the original members of COLD HARD TRUTH.

However, the result of this combination heads in a very different direction from any expectations, both lyrically and musically, as LAST ORDERS take you back to the roots of hardcore with their straight-up old school speed, well-written, creatively played and expertly blending speed, singalongs and occasional slowed down moments of groove.

LAST ORDERS are also one of the most distinctly London-themed bands in recent times, and their down to earth attitude and references are sure to raise a smile and a nod of recognition from London listeners while still being accessible to others.

Hailing from Columbus Ohio, POSTAL display a similar irreverent attitude with their ugly and aggressive thrashing crossover attack, as the band take you back to the glory days of the mid-80's, whilst still injecting plenty of their own personality.

Definitely leaning towards the hardcore end of the genre, POSTAL expertly blend the no bullshit attitude of old school hardcore with classic metallic crossover tempos and riffing.

Topped off with Jimmy the Mick's gruff and powerful bellow, each tune is trimmed down to the absolute essentials and wastes no time in getting straight to the point, but despite their ferocity, the well-structured riffing and composition of their songs make them instantly catchy and memorable, as the band blaze through tales of the highs and lows of life.

Neither band shies away from tackling a wide variety of topics, ranging from the serious to the hilarious but all relating to everyday reality as seen through their eyes.

Beer, chicken, friendship, positivity, anger and depression are just some of the themes, sometimes sincere and thoughtful but never taking themselves too seriously.

LAST ORDERS' and POSTAL's sincere old-school hardcore and raging crossover thrash complement each other perfectly, and there is plenty of flair and flavour on display in this quality 2-piece combo for hardcore fans to sink their teeth into.
