New York's Last Burning Embers are an atmospheric, post-punk influenced band in the spirit of Mission of Burma, the Sound and Killing Joke, as well as later bands like Swervedriver and Catherine Wheel. Vocalist Ben Voss, guitarist/vocalist Dave Burokas, drummer Jack Rabid (Springhouse, The Big Takeover) and bassist Thomas Burke (Slambook) formed the band in 1996. After making their debut on a tribute to Adrian Borland and The Sound, the band was struck a major blow in 1999 with the death of Voss, who fell victim to Leukemia. Opting to continue, the remaining three renamed themselves Last Burning Embers. The release of the band's first EP, Distress Call, coincided with a November 2000 date opening for the Buzzcocks at Maxwell's in Hoboken. The full-length Lessons in Redemption was released in late 2004 on Pink Frost records. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
