Hailing from Warrington/Manchester, this 5 piece band are purveyors of some of the finest hard rock this side of the Atlantic. Producing an amazing self-titled EP which received an under the radar release in late 2014, One Last Run brought forward riffs and melodies that have been compared to likes of Alter Bridge, Halestorm and Shinedown.
Their inception came as a natural progression, starting out from light hearted jam sessions between long standing friends Jack (Guitar), Rob (Guitar) & Chris (Bass), with Dan (Drums) being recommended as a great fit to the sounds they were experimenting with. The final addition of the One Last Run armada was Becky (Lead Vocals), who was spotted by Chris while she was singing for another band. With all the pieces assembled, One Last Run became a reality. That was the Autumn of 2013.
With a sound that came naturally to the newly formed band, the songs flowed forth and their eponymous debut EP “One Last Run” was born. Marking their first release the band were eager to see people’s reactions to them, so it came as a welcome treat to receive reviews such as:
“…THIS RECORD IS AN ABSOLUTE BRUTE. IT WILL PULL YOU IN, CHEW YOU UP, AND SPIT YOU OUT LEAVING YOU WITH NO IDEA WHAT JUST HIT YOU…”
THE MUSICAL OUTCAST
“…LAYS WASTE TO THE LISTENER FROM THE GET GO” & “ONLY COME LOOKING IF YOU WANT NO FRILLS ROCK N ROLL…” UBERROCK
1. Close My Eyes
3. House Of Cards
4. 8 Letter Phrase
5. Bring On The Pain
Pulling forward to 2015, the first track of a full length (as yet untitled) album has been recorded and is set to be unveiled on the world really soon, with the full album recording following later in the year & to be released early 2016.
Ramping up the quality and song writing ability even further, One Last Runs new track is called “Tell Me” and was recorded at Innersound Studios under the expert production skills of Joe Graves (Asking Alexandria, Yashin, The Family Ruin and Glamour of the Kill).
“…I don’t always have the opportunity to work with as many rock bands as I’d like, nor do I with talented female vocalists. So it was fantastic being able to explore a different and perhaps more melodic side of music…”

“…Working with One Last Run was a smooth and enjoyable experience. We gelled together well from day 1 in creativity and personality, which helped push us all and create some fantastic music in a very relaxed environment. Everyone was focused, hard working and very passionate about their music. I would happily work with these guys (and lady) again! All in All; Great people, Great band with great potential…”
