The album will feature 16 classic Def Leppard songs reworked and reimagined with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London.

The first single 'Animal' was released the same day and the new version of Hysteria followed on 5th May.

Joe and Phil are scheduled to appear on Talk Shop Live on 11th May on The Rock And Roll Channel.

The special event which will probably last for one hour will see them celebrate and discuss the new 'Drastic Symphonies' album.

Watch Phil below in the announcement video talking about the album and this event.

Joe and Phil also appeared on the same show in May 2022 to promote the 'Diamond Star Halos' album.

That show lasted around one hour and was filmed at Mates Studios (footage from this appearance is shown in the video below).

That interview was also done by host Steve Harkins.

During the interview Joe and Phil will be going through the album and giving a track by track guide.
