The Last Forty Seconds


Well, I couldn't find a picture of these guys playing, so I leave you with a picture of one of those cute little kiddies who show off all the Ape Must Not Kill Ape releases.

The Last Forty Seconds was an emotive hardcore band that formed in or around 1999 and broke up in the early 2000's. Members of this band went on to form The Saddest Landscape, Wolves, and vocalist Andy Maddox currently fronts screamo giants Ampere. Their only output is this 12" release and a split with Sundowner (recorded by Will Killingsworth of Orchid) which I haven't been able to find a vinyl rip of (SO IF YOU HAVE IT RIP IT!). This LP features 6 solid songs that remind me of bands like Funeral Diner, Orchid, and Portraits of Past. I think that'd be enough incentive for me to download this record.

Or even purchase it from Slave Union.

spend some time ripping the split. you can find it here temporarily:

feel free to post it on your side/elsewhere, but remember you need to upload it to a stable location (your mediafire account for example) first.

also, please do not remove or change any of the included files.

have fun, the last forty seconds are really unbelievably great.

The split with atbl is unreal. They also spelled "barnacle" wrong on the sleeve which I thought was pretty funny.
