The Last Dinner Party Have Arrived

The Last Dinner Party have just announced details of a 16-date UK and Ireland headline tour for later this year in support of their forthcoming debut album, Prelude To Ecstasy, which drops this Friday – 2nd February. The London based band have enjoyed a whirlwind twelve months, most recently announced as winners of both the BBC Radio 1 Sound of 2024 and the BRIT Rising Star Award. Ahead of a celebratory headline show at London’s Roundhouse on the evening before album release, they’re pleased to share another stint across the country in September and October.

The band return to Europe in February for a string of sold out headline dates, ahead of a first US headline tour just announced for March/April. Of their debut LP, The Last Dinner Party say: “Ecstasy is a pendulum which swings between the extremes of human emotion, from the ecstasy of passion to the sublimity of pain, and it is this concept which binds our album together. This is an archaeology of ourselves; you can exhume our collective and individual experiences and influences from within its fabric. We exorcised guitars for their solos, laid bare confessions directly from diary pages, and summoned an orchestra to bring our vision to life.”

At the turn of 2023, The Last Dinner Party was little more than a new name being shared amongst those that had caught them live. Great songs, strong aesthetic. April’s release of the moreish, dark guitar-pop of Nothing Matters marked an introduction that took the online world by storm, and yet behind all the excitement and narrative was a fantastically confident indie-rock song by a band doing it the old-fashioned way, out on the road.

Following a heady first-on performance to a packed crowd at Glastonbury Festival’s newly-named Woodsie’s stage, The Last Dinner Party released the gloriously infectious Sinner, before filling tents throughout the country’s biggest festivals. Headline shows followed suit, selling out two nights at East London’s EartH, five debut stateside gigs and a forthcoming album release show at the 3,000-capacity Roundhouse months in advance. The gothic rock of My Lady Of Mercy and anthemic balladry of On Your Side have since backed up the quintet’s beguiling live presence with an undeniable songwriting prowess.

At the turn of 2024, The Last Dinner Party have won themselves a first BRIT (Rising Star), and voted BBC Radio 1’s Sound of 2024. They’ll spend much of it joining dots from city to city on a road map across the globe. That whirlwind has barely even begun.
