In preparation for The Other Side, a full-length album coming in early 2012, The Last Vegas have released The Other Side E.P., which is free to download from thelastvegas.com.

If you’re familiar with The Last Vegas and like them then this E.P. is for you. All three songs still have that garage meets glam meets sleaze sound The Last Vegas have always had. There’s nothing here with the urgency of “I’m Bad” (“Other Side” is the single) but I like all three songs so I’m positive once The Other Side LP is released it will be another solid album from these Chicago rockers. I’m still waiting for a Last Vegas album to really knock my socks off but in the meantime their albums have been FUN and that’s what really counts, right? I’ll bet they’re a great live band.

For those of you that want/need a little something more than just 3 MP3 files, you can head on over to CMDistro.com and order yourself the E.P. bundle which includes: the E.P. on CD, a t-shirt & poster all for $20. Cool deal and it’s pretty cool of the band to put out this EP for free in digital format too. Hopefully it’ll build a buzz for the band before the proper album comes out because they really are a good band and deserve the recognition.

Unfortunately, it appears the guys are no longer on the Eleven Seven label (home of Motley Crue, Sixx:AM, Buckcherry and Papa Roach). Which is sad because I was hoping label president Nikki Sixx would continue to flex his muscles to get these guys on some good tours and it’s to my understanding that the “I’m Bad” single did very well on iTunes. I think Eleven Seven dropped the ball on this one.

At least they have a successful producer working with them on this new album. Johnny K most recently produced Megadeth’s Thirteen but has also produced for Disturbed, Staind, 3 Doors Down, Black Tide, Sevendust and Bad City’s excellent Welcome to the Wasteland.

So there ya go. New music from The Last Vegas — check it out for free or spend $20 to get some cool merch as well.

  1. I’ll have to download this cool E.P. \m/ Thanks for letting us know about it.

    If The Last Vegas is with Century Media Records now, heck, that is a pretty strong label that really puts out a ton of marketing support for their bands. 🙂

    • I wasn’t sure if they’re officially with CM because CMDistro lists the label for this EP as being Electric City Entertainment (who I’ve never heard of and can’t find any info on). I know CMDistro will still sell merch & albums from bands that aren’t on the CM label.

      Maybe the LP will be on the CM label, and I hope so. I can’t believe Eleven Seven & Nikki Sixx let them slip (or walk) away. They did the same with Charm City Devils apparently too (but it looks like CCD has signed with Warner Bros. Records for the next release, which is a step up).

      • Yes, Warner Bros. is a step up for Charm City Devils! Good for them too, they are a fine Rockin’ band. I was able to see CCD a couple of years ago, they opened for Pop Evil. Both bands I very much dig.

        Yeah, It did slip my mind that CM Distro sells other labels music as well. I’ve found some great deals over there too… hard to find stuff, dirt cheap deals at times. I haven’t bought there in awhile… now I’m itching to get over there and spend $$ I don’t have, LOL!
