"We have a new album coming out in October, and we still have that kind of integrity thing going. I think it’s the best thing Def Leppard’s done in 20 years. It’s like massive guitars all over the place, more vocals than we’ve done since Hysteria, so, you know, just multi-track stuff like crazy. And super melodic. Some songs sound like full on rock, and there are other songs that sound like Top 40. So, every song is kind of its own entry, its own project, if you like."

Yeah. Is that album done?

"Yeah. It is. It comes out in October, late October. So, we literally just finish the U.S. tour and we get the album out for when we play in Japan actually. It comes out in Japan, so we’ll have the new record there."

Cool. What’s it called?

"Def Leppard."
