Def Leppard is planning to keep busy through the end of this year and into 2019. When their “The Hysteria Tour” wraps in December, the band is going back into the studio.

Front man Joe Elliott confirmed in a recent interview that the band will regroup after the tour and share the pieces of what they’ve been working on individually “for what will be the next Def Leppard record.”

What will become the band’s 12th studio album will be their first new music since 2015’s self-titled album.

In the meanwhile, Joe is working on his solo project Down ‘N’ Outz and guitarist Vivian Campbell is working with his group Last In Line.
