Windscale is ambient post-rock project Last Days' sixth album. The album focuses on Britain's most significant nuclear disaster in 1957 at the Windscale nuclear plant. Each work on Windscale mirrors the mood of critical moments in the struggling reactor's timeline. From the hopeful promises of free energy to nuclear fire and its aftermath. Through his unique brand of aural storytelling, Last Days experiments in a way that reinforces the retro-futuristic nature of atomic power, showing melancholic empathy for those who experienced the accident firsthand.

In 1947, construction began on Windscale, Britain's first nuclear
reactor in the town of Seascale, in North West England.

Windscale was designed to produce plutonium for nuclear
weapons as well as generating electricity for the local area.

In 1957, the core of one of the two reactors overheated causing
a fire which resulted in radioactive material to be released over the
UK and Europe.

Although there were no immediate fatalities and a full-scale disaster
was averted, some estimates suggest that the incident caused
240 cancer cases.
