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 in
1984. Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Vivian Campbell were Ronnie Dio’s 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 Andrew’s 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 Andrew’s voice and delivery.

Last In Line’s 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.” -Viv

Earlier 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.
