Last Temptation återutger debutalbum i januari 2023

Den 27:e januari 2023 återutger det melodiösa hårdrocksbandet Last Temptation albumet ”Love Wins” via bolaget MelodicRock Classics. Så här går att läsa i ett pressmeddelande:

MelodicRock Classics is excited to kick off 2023 with a fresh take on a much sought-after release from classic hard rockers LAST TEMPTATION.

The 10 tracks that made up the band’s original self-titled independent 2009 release have been re-ordered into a sequence the band thinks work better, but not only that, three unreleased tracks from the same original sessions have been freshly re-recorded and added to the album to make the definitive perfect LAST TEMPTATION release.

The upgraded album gets a new title too. Love Wins, with all tracks – classic and new – remastered by sound wiz JK Northrup will be released by MRC January 27. Pre-orders will be available next week.

The band states: “After all these years the band is very excited to record and release 3 new songs along with the original 10 tracks from our last album that some fans were not able to purchase.

The new album titled ‘Love Wins’ will feature 13 tracks, newly packaged and ready for release soon. Arnie, Frank, Steve, Steve and Allan would like to say thanks to Andrew and the melodic rock community for this opportunity and we’re excited for the possibilities of 2023 and beyond.

See you soon!”


LAST TEMPTATION was started in the mid 80’s by guitarist/songwriter Arnie Miot and it wasn’t until almost 1990 that vocalist Frank Vestry teamed up with Arnie to create what would become the current version of the band. Bassist Steve Hervatic, drummer Steve Murphy and keyboardist Allan Gabay round out the group.

Arnie’s brilliant guitar work and Frank’s signature vocals along with top notch song writing are what made and still makes the band popular amongst melodic rock fans.

This New York/New Jersey based pro-level band is made up of members that have toured with national acts and played with some of the biggest artists in the industry.

Last Temptation had an amazing run, but never reached the level of stardom that they all wanted so badly. After all these years the band is thrilled to release “Love Wins” which includes 3 new tracks just recently recorded on Long Island and in Florida.

01. Love Wins In The End (New)
