New York Hardcore has an undeniable past, present and future within the ranks of all of the members of The Last Stand.
The Brooklyn based band features Mike Scondotto of the long running Inhuman on vocals, along with Dion De Nardo on bass, Stephen Della Croce on guitar & Jimmy McCormack on drums, all members of the band Shutdown, who spent most of their recording career on Victory Records. Since the band’s first live show in October of 2010, The Last Stand has been playing all over the Northeast, sharing the stage with the likes of legendary Hardcore bands like Sick Of It All, Madball, Agnostic Front, Murphy's Law, Youth of Today, Maximum Penalty and Terror - as well as newer Hardcore artists like Wisdom In Chains, Suburban Scum & Trapped Under Ice. In 2011 the band released their debut 7” ep on 1124 Records. In 2012 TLS entered Nova Studios with producer Jerry Farley to record their debut full length "The Time Is Now", featuring guest appearances by Lou Koller of Sick of It All, Dave Franklin of Vision & Joseph James of Agnostic Front/Inhuman.
"This band came together for two reasons in 2010 - the first was for the love of Hardcore”, says vocalist Michael Scondotto. “The other was to have fun playing with friends, who are more like an extended family. In the tradition of the many bands that came before us and continue to inspire us, The Last Stand hopes to carry the torch and show the world that New York Hardcore is alive and as vital as ever. We are very happy and excited to be releasing “The Time Is Now” on Eulogy Recordings, a label we have all admired and respected over the years.”
