LAST IN LINE's Third Album Is 'Definitely In The Works,' Says VINNY APPICE

Vinny Appice has confirmed that LAST IN LINE has commenced the songwriting process for its third album. "We already got together in [Las] Vegas," the drummer told the "Ouch, You're On My Hair" podcast (hear audio below). "DEF LEPPARD were doing a residency at the Planet Hollywood, and we already started jamming. Vivian [Campbell, DEF LEPPARD and LAST IN LINE guitarist] had a couple of days off, and we were all there, so we got together two days one week, two days the next week, and we came up with a whole bunch of great ideas that we're gonna work on for songs. So it's definitely in the works."

LAST IN LINE features former DIO members Campbell and Appice, alongside ex-OZZY OSBOURNE bassist Phil Soussan and singer Andrew Freeman.

The band released its second LP, "II", this past February.

As with 2016's "Heavy Crown", "II" was produced by DOKKEN and FOREIGNER bassist Jeff Pilson.

LAST IN LINE was formed in 2012, when Appice, Campbell and bassist Jimmy BainRonnie James Dio's co-conspirators and co-writers on the "Holy Diver", "Last In Line" and "Sacred Heart" albums — teamed up with Freeman. "Heavy Crown" was released in February 2016, landing at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. Initially, the release had been preceded by tragedy when 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 Soussan 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.
