Famous Last Words" - A phrase reflecting the final articulated words of an individual before death, often to be immortalized as the centerpiece of a particular movement…. It's a pertinent name for a band whose lyrical concepts and themes revolve around life, death, hope and love.

Hailing from Petoskey, MI, Famous Last Words formed in 2009 and quickly began to make their mark within the scene. Utilizing heavy guitar riffs, catchy hooks, folly, and symphonic elements, the band took things a step further and introduced detailed stories into their lyrics and album structure; transforming their band into more of an art project. It was characteristics like this that lead the independent label InVogue records to sign the band in 2012.

The band released one EP and one early demo before recording their first full-length album Two-faced Charade with renowned producer Joey Sturgis, who later went on to say that Famous Last Words was in his top 10 favorite bands he'd ever worked with. Direct quote -"this record from beginning to end is one of the most exciting concept and storytelling records I've ever heard." Two-faced Charade swiftly placed the band on the map. Lyrically, it depicts the story of a psychopath whose twisted idea of love drives him to the furthest point of insanity. The band released a music video for the song "The Show Must Go On," which quickly erupted on YouTube, reeling in millions of views. In light of the video's massive success, the band collectively decided to shoot a 30-minute short film depicting the entire story behind the album. The movie is due out March 2015. After a heavy touring schedule, the band rode on the coattails of their own success, releasing their second full-length album in 2014 through InVogue records titled, Council of the Dead. Recorded by Nick Sampson, they again based the entire album around a single concept. But unlike their previous album, Council of the Dead tells not one, but eight individual narratives, each delineating a specific story. The stories cover a wide range of circumstances, each portraying an idiosyncratic account of a person's life nearing death. But each story bears a positive note in that it ruminates upon a person's life as if looking back from the afterlife. Overall the album is not only a collection stories, but also a tale of the preserving human spirit through the greatest trials and hardships that life has to offer. Famous Last Words has no intention of slowing down as they push forward with plans to release their short film and are planning a tour through Europe. Always pushing the boundaries of what a band encompasses, expect great things in the future of this band.
