Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has said he doesn't think it's likely the band will release another full length studio album.

Various band members have stated over the last two years the band would release a few songs at a time or EPs rather than a full album. It should be noted they've also said they would release another album in 2013.

Vivian was responding to a question about the Slang Deluxe Edition from UK fan Justin.

I wondered what the bands expectations for the Slang re-release are? I live in the UK (Sheffield) and truthfully can only remember once in last 10years that Def Leppard were on TV/Radio etc here. I would love to see a brand new, hard rock album advertised to the masses, I think it would do extremely well. Any new AC/DC, Bon Jovi, VH album is allover TV before release. I personally think that DL has a similar audience to the bands mentioned but the only difference (in the UK)is that people are just unaware of the releases.

"The music business is completely different to what it was, Justin. I doubt there'll ever be another album, as such, from Leppard. New songs, yes, but it's difficult to see the point of recording an album in the current musical landscape - especially as Leppard have proven to be notoriously slow at recording. That's just my personal opinion."

"That's just my interpretation, given the musical landscape. I could well be proven wrong."
