Who are the Last Shadow Puppets?

Who are the Last Shadow Puppets?

You may have heard of English alternative indie rock band, Arctic Monkeys, and their frontman Alex Turner (right) and another English indie rock band, The Rascals, and their frontman, Miles Kane (left). Unfortunately, The Rascals split in 2009. The Arctic Monkeys, thankfully, still live on.

Miles Kane and Alex Turner have always been good friends. In 2008, they started the Last Shadow Puppets. Their debut album The Age of the Understatement followed and got a nomination for a Mercury Music Prize and entered the UK Album Chart at #1.

The Age of the Understatement is one of those albums buried deep in your iTunes library that when it comes up on the shuffle, you are enchanted by it all over again. Each song on the album spins a story that you can only imagine in your head. Each song is accompanied by a chill, mellow music and lyrics that stir up memories from ages ago (at least for me.) Passion, hatred, and everything in between is seen throughout the album.

 

Upon my discovery of The Last Shadow Puppets, my excitement was interrupted when I learned that they have only one album and Miles Kane has been MIA for a while and Alex Turner only released AM 3 years ago. I accepted the fact that they are a dormant band and then not even a year later I discover that they are coming out with their sophomore album! And going on tour! And their single, “Bad Habits” is already out! And the music video! It was definitely some of the best news I’ve heard in awhile.

 

Their new album Everything You’ve Come to Expect comes out April 1, 2016. Their tour kicks off in March. More information: http://www.thelastshadowpuppets.com/
