THE LAST VINCI
Fri 1st Apr 2022
Cork-based Alternative/Stoner Rock trio The Last Vinci are set to release their second album “The Revolution is Made Together” via Narrow Door Records. It was co-produced by acclaimed British producer Tom Peters, after an incredible fundraising campaign supported by the band’s fanbase in the first half of 2021.
Preceded by the singles “Gallow” on October 15th and “Glitter Slaughterhouse” on November 26th, the Cork trio are ready to present the album’s third single “Falling from a Mountain of Joy”. The song aims to showcase the band’s signature sound and creative approach, supported by an unconventional animated music video.
“FALLING FROM A MOUNTAIN OF JOY” is the third single and one of the most ambitious songs from the band’s upcoming new LP. It’s a heavy and melancholic song, and includes tempo changes which represent the fight described in the lyrics. Cue a heavy, epic riff followed by Alex’s intense vocal performance; instantly, one can recognize the new artistic direction the trio are taking, following on from their 2019 EP. The song talks of the constant fall of the human race in search of happiness. “We have everything we need, but despite that we keep falling from a mountain of Joy, and we don’t know why. There’s always a missing piece in our heart. But Love is bigger than that. No matter how many times we fall, love is the reason why we get back up, waiting to fall again” (Alex).
The animated music video, to be released on January 7th via The Last Vinci’s Youtube channel, was directed by Jon Nuo of Nuomation, based on a creative idea by The Last Vinci and truly reflective of the song’s meaning.
About the Album:
Despite the pandemic dramatically impacting musicians in every corner of the planet, The Last Vinci have been working nonstop since the beginning of 2020 on their new LP.
After an Album, an EP and several tours, the Band came back to the studio during April 2021 teaming up with Liverpool producer Tom Peters (who produced unreal bands like Alpha Male Tea Party, Bicurious, God Alone, and many others) for what is shaping up to be their biggest release to date.
Conscious of the power of musicians working together, the Album will also feature several Irish Artists who shared the stage with the band during their 2019 tour.
With the lack of gigging due to the Covid crisis, getting the budget together to record the Album has been very hard; pushing the trio to raise a call to their fan base by launching a Gofundme Campaign on December 15th 2020, in support of the recording expenses.
The response from The Last Vinci’s fanbase came promptly, helping the band to raise over 2k in the first month of promotion and collecting 5k in total at the end of the campaign, also thanks to their Hilarious promotional video produced and filmed by the band itself.
The new LP promotion will kick off in September with the new Single “Gallow”, an Anthem born from an open call posted by the band on their social media during the Summer of 2020, asking their fans “What are you not doing because of Fear?”. The song includes vocal samples of the responses sent in by the fans, supported by the band’s motto “Fear is the biggest Lie”.
