Maine’s progressive-metalers, LAST CHANCE TO REASON have been tapped to support label mates, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, on their first headlining tour this summer. INTRONAUT and DEAD LETTER CIRCUS will also appear on the July tour. Dates will be announced shortly. The band is also working on two music videos: one for “Upload Complete” which is entering post-production stages, now ,and the second for the track “Prototype,” which the band will film during tour breaks.
Evan Sammons, the band’s drummer, commented: “We’re thrilled by the response to ‘Level 2.’ Fans, critics and forum kids alike have been incredibly positive. It’s great to feel that people get what we’re about and are excited about it. Touring with some of our favorite progressive artists this summer is the icing on the cake.”

LAST CHANCE TO REASON teamed up with producer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me) to create a modern take on the classic progressive concept album. Drawing influence from the 70’s prog of King Crimson and Yes, composers Steve Reich and Schoenberg as well as prog-metal masters Opeth, Dream Theater and Cynic, LCTR’s “Level 2” takes the band in awe-inspiring new directions.
Set in a Tron-like virtual world, the album’s concept revolves around the relationship between man and technology, our move from physical reality to virtual spaces and what these changes mean to our lives and our art. The lyrics are expressed from the point of view of an artificial intelligence facing the violent reality of a videogame world.
Since forming in 2005, LAST CHANCE TO REASON has shared the stage with Atheist, Born of Osiris, Periphery, The Red Chord, Daath, Revocation, Unearth and many more.
