Last Lights formed in Worcester, Massachusetts in the summer of 2007. Led by the late Dominic Mallary, the original lineup consisted of Jesse Menard (Guitar), Rich Davis (Bass), and Jesse Conway (Drums). A demo was produced by the end of 2007, before adding Andrew Nordstrom to fill out the lineup on second guitar. Last Lights were quick to form a buzz, noted mostly from the intense live show and the no-frills attitude of the band. Up and coming independent label Mightier Than Sword released the self-titled 7" debut in August 2008, merely a year since the band had formed.
