Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has been interviewed by Gary Graff and mentioned new music.

Vivian talked about his health, Joe's vocal problems and the possibility of new music from the band sooner than the seven year gap from Sparkle Lounge to last year's new album.

An audio clip from this interview was already published.

When speaking to the Japanese press in November last year Vivian had said he expected the band would take 2017 off from touring. He added the next album would likely be recorded in 2018 and not released before 2019 and added - "If the album format itself even exists by that time."

Billboard - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

The Next Def Leppard Album

"I do think it's encouraged us a lot to the extent I think we'll see another record a hell of a lot sooner than the time between this one and the last one."

"There's always stuff around. There's always ideas. Everyone in the band is reasonably prolific. With Leppard it's never the question of not having enough songs; it's a question of what kind of songs. Every Def Leppard album has to have all these different flavors and hit all these different marks. It's not a question of just showing up with a dozen rock songs. So that's what takes a lot of time."
