New record for Def Leppard?
Last summer, Joe Elliot spoked to the Daily Express about the possibility of a new record for the band. It would be the first studio album released by Def Leppard since 2015.
“It’s always a possibility,” Elliot explained.
He added, “The one thing about this band is it never stops working, even when we’re not visible. We are always doing something, we’re always writing, we keep in touch with each other regarding putting new ideas together”.
Speaking at the time, Elliot said that the band were working on new material, whilst adapting to the various lockdowns put in place due to the pandemic.
“It is very possible that something may occur during this lockdown,” he continued, adding “We’ve got nothing concrete; we’ll just have to see how it goes”.
Bizarrely, 2019 saw another band member, Rick Allen join the likes of Scorpions and Iron Maiden, to have a species named after him.
On this, Allen had said, “I am honored! Thank you, Cristina Rheims! You rock!”
