[Before their 2009 debut release of "Everyone Is Anyone", The Last Semester (then called A Semester at Sea) embarked on a month long, tumultuous summer writing binge, having only known each other for a week prior.
Consisting of guitarist Kyle Culver and drummer Jamie Berger, they added Matt Hasenmueller after a chance meeting under the moonlight near the fire.
"It wasn't that romantic, but it struck a serious friendship from there on," Culver said.
They teamed up to co-write an eight song, self produced EP in Hasenmueller's basement during a balmy Wisconsin June. A spurt of success led to the addition of bassist Dave Connell, and included a peak at #1 on PureVolume for two weeks in 2010. And from there has been a multitude of delays, lasting creative frustration, member variation, and slight style shift; though they remain patient. Poised to capitalize on a breath of fresh, melodical air. They radiate strong sense of togetherness amongst the fivesome; a sort of brotherhood that has bonded through music, that shows through their music.]
