Vivian Campbell Explains Def Leppard's Approach To New Album

(hennemusic) Def Leppard have regrouped this month in Dublin, Ireland to write an record some new music, and guitarist Vivian Campbell is sharing some insight into the sessions while promoting the band's reissue of their 1996 album, "Slang."

"[For] the first time in that many years, since we did 'Slang', we're actually going to try to record that way again," Campbell tells Death And Taxes. "Rick's going to play an acoustic kit and we're going to play in real time. People have been doing it that way for 50 years, but for Def Leppard, this is new and exciting and to actually go and record as a real band."

"We usually record to a drum machine, one guy at a time, very slow and methodical and boring," he continued. "But Leppard's a great, great live band, and when we play live, there's a real dynamic sense that we don't get when we're building the track bit by bit by bit. So we're excited about that. We're basically songwriting and recording while we go. We won't get a new album done this year, but we're hoping to get a song or two or three done over the next couple of months." more on this story
