Def Leppard release new album today

Global rock icons Def Leppard released their eleventh studio album today, October 30th 2015, (excluding N. America and Japan) on earMUSIC Records 

The self-titled album is the band’s first since 2008’s Songs From The Sparkle Lounge and “probably the most diverse thing we’ve done. I think it’s the best thing we’ve done since Hysteria – I really do. It’s the loudest rock guitars we’ve ever had on some tracks”, said guitarist Phil Collen.

Watch the brand new video for new single Let’s Go here.

Def Leppard head to Japan, Australia and Singapore in November, before kicking off their EU and UK co-headline tour with Whitesnake in December, culminating in a hometown show at Sheffield Arena on the 19th of December. See all dates and remaining ticket info here.
