What started as a casual reunion jam in a Los Angeles rehearsal room in 2011 has grown into a fully-fledged project that has taken on a life of its own. Last In Line, the band, takes its name from the second Dio album released in1984. Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Vivian Campbell were Ronnie Dios co-conspirators and co-writers on the «Holy Diver», «Last In Line» and «Sacred Heart» albums these records have gone on to become part of rock history.During that first jam it was apparent that the chemistry of the original band was very much intact, even after a 27 year hiatus. The excitement generated by that rediscovery led to a second session, where this time they called in acclaimed vocalist Andrew Freeman. Hearing Andrews interpretations of the original Dio songs was a revelation and the inspiration to move forward as a band. Over the ensuing years a handful of local LA shows led to a handful of overseas shows in the U.K. and Japan, and eventually to an offer from Frontiers to record a new album of original material.During the course of 2014, the band wrote and recorded 12 new songs and chose longtime friend Jeff Pilson as producer. Jeff very much captured the organic crunch of the band and the very best in Andrews voice and delivery.Last In Lines debut album, Heavy Crown was released in February 2016, hitting number 1 on the Billboard Heat-Seekers Chart, with the singles Devil In Me and Starmaker leading the charge. But the release was preceded by tragedy when Jimmy Bain passed away at the age of 68 on January 23rd, another great musician taken from us far too soon. Jimmy was immensely proud of the new album and his input to «Heavy Crown» was immeasurable. «We will continue to celebrate his life through his music… Rest in peace, dear friend. -VivEarlier this year Last In Line played a handful of shows, including headlining both the Frontiers Rock Festival in Milan, Italy and the Metal Stage at the Rocklahoma Festival, bringing in renowned bassist Phil Soussan and keyboardist Erik Norlander. The gigs featured tracks from „Heavy Crown“ alongside songs from those classic Dio albums. With „Heavy Crown“ finally being released on gatefold vinyl on September 30th, Last In Line will take that line up out on a full European tour in November 2016 appearing as special guests to Saxon on selected European dates and headlining a raft of venues across the UK.
