His Last Walk is the debut full-length album by American post-hardcore band Blessthefall, released April 10, 2007.[6] It is the only release by the band to feature original vocalist, Craig Mabbitt, who would later be replaced by Beau Bokan.[7] The album was released before Blessthefall started to play on the Taste of Chaos tour. Four singles were released for the album: "Higinia", "Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad", "A Message to the Unknown", and "Rise Up." The last song, "His Last Walk", features a bonus song (at the end of the same track) called "Purple Dog", which is a joke song made by the band members in which all members sing the song and clap their hands.
