Last In Line, the band featuring Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell alongside fellow founding Dio members and vocalist Andrew Freeman on vocals will tour to honor bandmate Jimmy Bain. Bain passed suddenly on Jan. 23 while the band was performing on Def Leppad's cruise.

The band is readying the release of their debut album “Heavy Crown” which will be out on Feb. 19 via Frontiers Music Srl. According to, Vivian Campbell says there has been no decision made as to who will replace Bain in Last In Line. The cd was recorded at Southern California studio and produced by Jeff Pilson, a veteran bassist who plays with Foreigner and formerly of Dokken, Dio, and many other bands. Singer Andrew Freeman (a former Pine Bush NY resident) most recently performed in the Las Vegas production “Raiding The Rock Vault” and previously performed in George Lynch’s Lynch Mob and The Offspring among others. In addition to Vivian Campbell on guitar and Andrew Freeman on vocals, the band includes drummer Vinny Appice.

The tunes that I've heard from this band sound great! Can't wait to pick up the album.
