Founded in 2003 the band first started to play some sort of doom/dark metal with a strong Katatonia influence. 2007 marked a big turning point for LAST LEAF DOWN with singer and drummer leaving the band. Replacements have been found soon with Benjamin Schenk as the new vocalist and Patrick Hof as their new drummer. The change in the line-up also marked the change in the band's sound away from Metal to their present direction, which reminds on Shoegaze-Bands from the 80s, but without sounding outdated.
Followed by local shows the band recorded a promo EP in 2011 and in 2013 LAST LEAF DOWN recorded new demo tracks they did spread widely through social networks such as Youtube, Soundcloud and Facebook, which brought the band a lot of attention by critics and new fans.
LAST LEAF DOWN released their debut album FAKE LIGHTS in November 2014 via Lifeforce Records.
