2001 is unusually good year for Last Hope, because of their participation in festivals in countries like Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia and Greece. The European invasion is followed by records of new songs for the compilation "3-Way Split" (featuring Vendetta and Skinflick), and a little bit later the four band members created their second album "My Own Way". Alongside many bands from the Bulgarian hardcore and punk scene like Vendetta, Crowfish, Skinflick, Not Broken in Spirit, the biggest impression made the massive foreign presence with Janne from the Finnish hardcore pride Endstand, Aca Choice from the Serbian old school champions Hitman and mostly Jimmy G from the NY legends Murphy's Law. After the release in the spring of 2003, came one of the most beneficial periods in Last Hope’s career, at least regarding their live performances. Now, after 13 years of playing Last Hope are leaders on native stage.
And not just on it – they’ve played all across Europe and got on one stage with artists like Napalm Death, Madball, Stampin' Ground, D.R.I., Integrity, Murphy's Law, Agnostic Front, Sick of It All, Merauder, Caliban, Sworn Enemy and many more. Last Hope's latest album to date - "Test Of Time" - was released in 2007. 2) Last Hope is a portuguese Hardcore Punk band.
