The EP that launched Def Leppard's career is getting a special vinyl reissue from Mercury Records for this year's Record Store Day, which is taking place on Saturday, April 22nd.

The Def Leppard EP, which was originally self-released by the band in 1979, will be reissued as a 12" vinyl with "replica art and picture cover", and will mark the first time it will be released on the long-form/45 rpm format.

Frontman Joe Elliott had this to say, "This is the EP that shone a light on this fledgling bunch of wannabes and set us on our way to international stardom (eventually...)! Recorded at Fairview Studios, just outside Hull in North Yorkshire, a studio we were extremely happy to frequent as it had been used on numerous occasions by the late great Mick Ronson.

"It took 2 days to record and cost 148.50 - money borrowed from my Dad (a feat financially and time wise we would never get close to achieving again, EVER!!!!)"

The Def Leppard EP Tracklisting:
"Ride Into The Sun"
"Getcha Rocks Off"
"The Overture"
