More on the new album:

Quote:

Q. What does the future hold for Def Leppard? I know you have a new album coming out in October.


A. Yeah, it's finished. We're just doing simple, last-minute adjustments. The first song is going to go to radio next month. It's a 14-track, 55-minute album. It's just called "Def Leppard" because that's what it sounds like. It doesn't sounds like any one specific era of Def Leppard. It's got everything.

You'll listen and you go "Oh, that sounds like Def Leppard" or you'll go "That is Leppard, but sounds a bit like Led Zeppelin or Queen but you can hear the AC/DC or the Crosby, Stills and Nash coming through." We have not shied away from anything that's influenced us in our growing up periods of our life. Just because we've made the kind of music we've made doesn't mean to say we don't like all of this other stuff.

We made this record as an artistic statement that we'd be happy to play in 10 or 15 years in time and go "You know what? That is a great record. That was a great period in our career."

You just have to wait for the stars to be aligned. For this new album, they seemed to have been for us, because we all played and sang great and wrote well. There's some great variety on there. Every single aspect of anything we've ever wanted to put out — acoustic, heavy, soft, slow, fast — it's there. That's why we call it "Def Leppard" because, just like Queen were, we're capable of coming up with vastly different kinds of songs.

I am not sure who is going to see Van Halen these days and appreciating the show, all because of Roth.
I searched for a 2015 live video of Van Halen to see it and now I just want to punch the guy.

Tesla are amazing musicians, amazing live and have amazing songs...

This. It's sad. Even though Roth was always about the show, now his show sucks. In addition to his voice.

I wouldn't call their opening acts shitty bands but yeah, I agree, we want a 2.5 hour DL show, not a 1.5 hour show with only the usual hits.

Yea and a good album length as well. I know it's quality over quantity but considering Songs from the Sparkle Lounge was only about 35 minutes. I hope they're delivering as much as they say they are this time. While Sparkle Lounge had some good songs on there, it wasn't enough to satisfy my thirst for new Leppard music. From the way the band have described it, it sounds like they've gone all-out with this one, and apparently there's no ballads on the album either.

I'm looking forward to it. Sparkle Lounge... I quite enjoyed it as a bridge off of "Yeah!" with the exception of "Nine Lives" I thought "Go" had great lyrics and was insanely catchy, while finding it to be a slower tempo than expected.

I'm hoping they go back to twists and turns with the arrangements of the songs.
