February 2019 - Vivian Campbell Interview Quote

Last In Line II Album

"And though it’s not the most original name, II fits perfectly. This really does sound like a band’s second album. I also think because we took our band name from the second Dio album, some people didn’t quite get us. Honestly, if I had known the band would get to this stage, I wouldn’t have called it Last In Line!”

Last In Line II - Press Release

Last In Line was formed in 2011, when Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain, and Vivian Campbell, (Ronnie James Dio's co-conspirators and co-writers on the "Holy Diver", "Last In Line" - the album from which they took their name, and "Sacred Heart" albums) teamed up with esteemed vocalist Andrew Freeman.

The debut album "Heavy Crown" was released in February 2016 to critical acclaim. Initially, the release had been preceded by tragedy when bassist Jimmy Bain unexpectedly passed away at the age of 68 on January 23, 2016.

Last In Line, honoring what they knew would be Bain's wish to keep the band moving, brought in renowned bassist Phil Soussan (ex-Ozzy Osbourne) and committed to sustained touring in support of the album, hitting festivals, headlining clubs, and sharing the stage with metal luminaries such as Saxon and Megadeth.

In late 2017, the band gathered in L.A. to start the recording of the second album, which was produced by the band members and Jeff Pilson (Foreigner, The End: machine, ex-Dokken), who also produced the debut album.

Having really gelled as a band while touring in support of the debut album, the songwriting came readily to the members. They've created a record that shows a big progression in sound, while immediately being recognizable as Last In Line thanks to Vinny Appice's rhythms, thunderous bass from Soussan, amazing vocals from Andrew Freeman, and the roaring guitars of Vivian Campbell.

The deluxe edition of this album comes in a special collector's box with the CD plus a t-shirt, size XL only.
