The Last Dinner Party Share New Single "Caesar On A TV Screen"
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Last Dinner Party are pleased to share their first new music of 2024, with new single "Caesar On A TV Screen". It precedes the release of the forthcoming debut album, Prelude To Ecstasy, out February 2nd via Island Records/Universal Music.

"Caesar On A TV Screen" is the sound of The Last Dinner Party proving why 2023's most exciting new prospect were worthy of all the acclaim and attention, whilst setting themselves up for another explosive twelve months.

The new single combines all the elements that have garnered them this early platform; leftfield pop hooks, rock flourishes and a colourful sense of theatricality. It's the sound of a band meaning every word they sing, and having the most fun in delivering it.
Watch the video for "Caesar On A TV Screen" - it was directed alongside Harv Frost, who the band have previously worked with for the "My Lady of Mercy" video too.

Whilst no awards nor accolades should ever define an artist's importance or relevance, they're certainly a welcome 'moment' in joining the dots and helping to tell a story, and The Last Dinner Party concluded their introductory year being handed the BRIT's Rising Star Award 2024 and heralded as Rolling Stone UK's "Rising Stars" at their inaugural 2023 Awards too. The band will discover if they've been voted the BBC Sound of 2024 winners later this week.

The Last Dinner Party on their debut album: "Ecstasy is a pendulum which swings between the extremes of human emotion, from the ecstasy of passion to the sublimity of pain, and it is this concept which binds our album together. This is an archeology of ourselves; you can exhume our collective and individual experiences and influences from within its fabric. We exorcised guitars for their solos, laid bare confessions directly from diary pages, and summoned an orchestra to bring our vision to life."

The story so far...
At the turn of 2023, The Last Dinner Party was little more than a new name being shared amongst those that had caught them live. Great songs, strong aesthetic. Having spent much of 2022 writing those songs, road-testing them, and then taking them into the studio, it wasn't until April when the band released the instantly more-ish, dark guitar-pop of "Nothing Matters" that seemingly everyone had now formed an opinion on them. It was an introduction that took the online world by storm, and yet behind all the excitement and narrative was a fantastically confident indie-rock song by a band doing it the old-fashioned way, out on the road.

Following a heady first-on performance to a packed crowd at the new Woodsies tent at Glastonbury, The Last Dinner Party released "Sinner," another gloriously infectious, leftfield pop song that fuelled the fully-formed zeitgeist and set the band up for a Summer that replicated that success of Glastonbury with uncomfortably packed tents ensuing at the likes of Green Man, Reading & Leeds, Latitude and End of the Road (interspersed with support slots to the likes of Florence & The Machine, Lana Del Rey and First Aid Kit). It was a breakthrough Summer for one of the most talked about new British acts in years, delivering on all that early promise emphatically.

Concentrating on their own headline shows, the band skipped confidentally from venue to venue, playing to bigger rooms and on wider stages. Shows sold out and shows were upgraded. In London alone, the band have moved from sell-out dates at Moth Club to Camden Assembly, Oslo to two nights at EartH, and now move on to the 3000 capacity Roundhouse on the eve of album release which has already long since sold out. Crucially, it's not just London where the band finds its early fans, but right across the UK and into America too, with all five debut shows in late 2023 selling out several weeks in advance.

The band often set a themed dress code for the shows, with many fans relishing the task of rising to the request and donning their finery for a night with their new heroes.

But this is no case of style over substance. The recent release of their third single, "My Lady Of Mercy," an almost gothic, haunting rock song, and now with this atmospheric and anthemic ballad, On Your Side, the band's songwriting is testament to all the buzz and excitement already accumulated. As it should be. Rather than wilt under the spotlight, they've arguably become a tighter, stronger unit because of it.
Prelude To Ecstasy is both the closing of that introductory chapter and the opening of the next.
