Def Leppard Mixing Things Up With New Music

(Classic Rock) Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has revealed their new material is in good shape and will have a heavy and melodic vibe. The band have just wrapped up an extensive US tour with Kiss, and are now working on the follow-up to 2008's Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.

Collen tells Shor Bazaar FM91: "In February I went to Joe's house and we got 12 songs started. We went back in May and got 15, so they're really in good shape. We've still got more stuff to do on them, so that'll be ready next year - and they're very varied.

"You let other things influence you but you still retain your integrity and your sound. We feel we've done that. These songs are a cross section. Some are really heavy and very melodic, and some are just very different - but you can still tell it's Def Leppard.

"We're very excited about that and it will be out next year. We'll be touring a lot more next year as well."
