VIVIAN CAMPBELL/LAST IN LINE Give Updates On 3rd Album Recording In California

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has started recording the third album with his band Last In Line this week.

Earlier this week the band began the recording sessions for their third studio album in California.

The band are at The Steakhouse Studios in North Hollywood, CA.

Vivian had announced the album's writing had been 80% completed late last year during a December 2019 interview when he said they will likely start recording it by February 2020 in Los Angeles.

He had also said it may not be released until late 2020 and will come out on a new record label after they ended their contract with Frontiers Music after two albums.

The band have now shared some video clips from the studio on Facebook as they work on the follow-up to February 2019's 'Last In Line II'.

As expected Last In Line have now removed the 20th June Hellfest show from their website due to the scheduling conflicts. They are however still listed on the festival's website line-up section.

Many new live shows were recently scheduled by the band's website for 2020.

They have also removed the Ramona, CA show but it is still listed by the venue site and tickets are still on sale.

The band ended their 2019 touring on 14th December in Tilburg, Holland.
