The Last Martyr recently debuted their live show at the gender-diverse festival UsFest, where Hysteria Mag said that they “…brought an infectious energy to the Girls Rock! stage for their first performance EVER. Swinging guitars, high jumps and headbanging anchored their set—and that was all it took the get the crowd moving. Good stuff.”
