The Last Man to Fly is The Tear Garden's second full release, released five years after the first.

This time cEvin Key's band mate D. Rudolph Goettel from Skinny Puppy became a permanent member of The Tear Garden. Also joining the band were The Silverman, Ryan Moore, and Martijn de Kleer from Edward Ka-Spel's own The Legendary Pink Dots, expanding the band from simply being an Edward and cEvin duo (with guests), as the previous release was.

Accompanying this release is their second EP, Sheila Liked the Rodeo.
