LAST IN LINE - A Day In The Life EP (2022) - full

LAST IN LINE will release a new EP, “A Day In The Life“, on November 11 via earMUSIC. The effort is numbered and limited to 3,000 copies worldwide. To kick things off is the title track, which is described in a press release as “one of the heaviest versions” of THE BEATLES classic ever recorded. The silver colored 12-inch vinyl also includes two live songs and a recently recorded new original track, which gives us a first hint of how LAST IN LINE’s third album will sound like.
Former DOKKEN and current FOREIGNER bassist Jeff Pilson, who produced both “II” and “Heavy Crown”, is not involved with the upcoming LAST IN LINE album. “We made a change,” drummer Vinny Appice said. “Actually, the guy who mixed the last record, Chris Collier, is who recorded our upcoming album. And we’re kind of producing it ourselves, between all of us”.

Kicking off with their take on The Beatles classic, it stays pretty faithful in metrics until part way through when Viv Campbell’s guitar kicks in and it turns into a monstrously epic rocker. With some superb vocals by Andrew Freeman, there’s elements of the source material, all mixed in with touches of Queen and the Foo Fighters that makes it a heady brew.

New track ‘Hurricane Orlagh’ is as furious as the title suggests, its huge hooks and modern metallic gleam that should appeal to fans of the grittier side of Foreigner’s output whilst still being very much Last In Line.
With live versions of ‘Devil In Me’ (from ‘Heavy Crown’) and ‘Give Up The Ghost’ (from ‘II’) both big, ballsy hard rockers that show off the sparkling chemistry that Freeman, Campbell and the rhythm section of drummer Vinnie Appice and bass player Phil Soussan have.

With all four giving their A Game on this selection, there’s so much to enjoy and appreciate, well beyond the ten years Last In Line have been around as a band. Classy, powerful and irresistible, ‘A Day In The Life’ is the perfect calling card.
