The Last Troubadour is an alternative rock band based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. On March 8th, they released their new single “Stay” along with a music video for the song. The release came along with the announcement that their upcoming album ‘Act III: Neon Gods’ will be released on May 4th.
The band’s debut album ‘Act I: Stereo Ground’ came out in 2010, and they have not looked back ever since. After quickly gaining recognition by being an energetic rock band that incorporates a saxophone into their sound, they won the Sound of Cincinnati title from a battle of the band’s competition at Bogart’s in 2011. Their second album ‘Act II: A Thousand Wars’ was then released in 2014.
As the album titles previously mentioned might suggest, The Last Troubadour is a concept band and all of their music follows a storyline. Written by the band’s lead vocalist Frankie Hill, the story is set in a dystopian future. Through music, we follow the protagonist through situations that question the topics of love, retribution, betrayal, and deception. The upcoming album will continue the saga of The Last Troubadour and promises to be the band’s most captivating work yet.
The Last Troubadour show dates:
03/22 – Cincinnati, OH – Stanley’s Pub
04/27 – Cincinnati, OH – Urban Artifact
