Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott talks about new music/recording plans in a Billboard interview to promote the VIVA Hysteria! residency.

Joe mentioned this would be the first time the band have been together in a room to work on new material from scratch in at least 10 years.

Both Joe and Vivian have talked in recent months about the plans to write/record new songs during the 9 show Las Vegas run which starts in 57 days on 22nd March.

Billboard - Joe Elliott Quotes

"This will be the first time in at least 10 years where we're all actually in one room banging out songs from scratch," Elliot explains. "We don't all live on the same continent, so it's increasingly more difficult for us to just do what people expect a band to do - wander into a dusty old rehearsal room and go, 'What you got?' Getting together to write an album is an event. So the whole point of this Vegas thing when we're not on stage is to attack pieces of work we have that aren't finished songs - 'I've got this riff.' 'Great, let's play around with it.' I'm sure everybody's got some individual ideas, and we'll go from there."
