Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell was interviewed yesterday by Louisville radio and mentioned the new album release date.

Vivian talked about joining the band in 1992, his first show in Dublin at McGonagles, his first band Sweet Savage influencing Metallica, Last In Line, the new Def Leppard self titled studio album, the 2016 Hysteria On the High Seas cruise and his health.

Vivian says he's heard the album will be out on Friday 30th - "probably". It's worth noting that Phil suggested it would be out in the week of 20th October in another recent interview suggesting a release date of Friday 23rd October.

"thereabouts" could still mean the 23rd of course - we shall see very soon as the single is still due in the next 10 days or so.

Listen to the full 10 minute interview below.

Def Leppard Album Release Date

"On top of that we have a new Def Leppard record which is coming out really, really soon. So it's been a very busy year or two for me."

"I think you know if we can sort out all the artwork and the packaging which as far as I'm aware is 99 or 100% ready to go. We should be able to drop the album by late October. Maybe October 30th or thereabouts I've been hearing."

"Now the single should be coming to you guys at radio some time in the next week or two. So when as soon as that does we'll start featuring that song in the show. So we're excited about that."
