If all goes according to plan, Def Leppard hope to start recording a new album later this year or early next. In fact, singer Joe Elliott says, “When this tour’s done and we’ve got a bit of downtime, we’ll probably have all collected individually written bits and bobs for what will be the next Def Leppard record. We share them with each other and go, ‘Oh. All right. What would happen if we do this with that one and blah, blah, blah?’ And, all of sudden, we’ll have every bit of half an album written.” SOURCE: via Premiere Radio Prep

Def Leppard’s last album was the self-titled disc that came out in 2015.

They start their tour with Journey on Monday in Hartford, Connecticut.
