Our Last Night formed in 2004 as a result of a few highly gifted friends who knew automatically that music was their calling. The group self-released their first EP, We've Been Holding Back, shortly after their conception.

By the following July, Our Last Night had already recorded a follow-up EP, Building Cities From Scratch, which was prized by fans and attracted the attention of several record labels. After a few lineup changes, the group was complete in 2006 with Trevor Wentworth (vocals), Matt Wentworth (guitar/vocals), Colin Perry (guitar), Alex "Woody" Woodrow (bass) and Tim Molloy (drums).
