Def Leppard Won't Take As Long For Next Album

(Classic Rock) Def Leppard guitarist Viv Campbell says fans shouldn't have to wait another seven years for the band's next release. They launched their self-titled 11th album last year - their first full-length effort since 2008's Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.

But Campbell reports that with so many creative ideas within the group, a studio return shouldn't take quite so long in the future. He tells Billboard: "I do think it's encouraged us a lot to the extent I think we'll see another record a hell of a lot sooner than the time between this one and the last one. There's always stuff around - there's always ideas. Everyone in the band is reasonably prolific.

"It's never the question of not having enough songs - it's a question of what kind of songs. Every Def Leppard album has to have all these different flavours and hit all these different marks. It's not a question of just showing up with a dozen rock songs. So that's what takes a lot of time." Read more here.
