Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has been interviewed by the Miami Herald and mentioned the new self titled studio album.

Joe talked about the current tour, how easy/hard certain Lep songs are to sing, 2015 studio album and the future of the band.

Joe says at the time the interview was conducted he was due to have a finished version of the new album delivered to him.

Phil said the title of the album "will" be Def Leppard in a recent interview.

As you can see below the "new album" ad is still being shown on the screens at shows. It seems more likely than ever that this is a direct reference to it's title (and perhaps even the cover art).

Miami Herald - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

2015 Studio Album

"As I speak, I think it's probably just about finished," says Elliott. "Our engineer and producer is doing last-minute tweaks to certain things right now, and I'm expecting a drop-off version of the finished thing tonight. But we're not playing any new stuff off it, because we don't want inferior versions up on YouTube before the album is out, which is not until October. And throughout our history, in the band's experiences, playing new music before the album comes out doesn't always work."

The Band's Future

"Right now, we want to go on, I don't wanna say forever - there comes a point where you probably become ridiculous. But I think we've still got a few good years in us yet."
