The ever reliable Def Leppard Fan Site DefLeppardUK.com has published the following excerpt of a recent interview with Vivian Campbell:
Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has been interviewed by The Prog Report and mentioned more new music for 2017.
“Yeah I think we’ve all been very encouraged by the response that it’s gotten. And we also feel really bad that it took so long for us to make that record. Between that record and our previous studio album Songs From The Sparkle Lounge – was something like what? seven or eight years. Something really embarrassing. So I would think given the fact that we toured so much in 2015 and we’re gonna tour pretty extensively again this year in 2016. That I would think next year in 2017 we’ll probably not do so many live shows if any at all.”
“And I think now we’re gonna focus a little bit more on making records too because I think we’re – like I said we’re very encouraged by the response to this. So I wouldn’t be at all surprised if in 2017 Leppard’s back in the studio. You know and Leppard, we’ve put so much of our focus into playing live over recent decades. So it’s nice to kind of get back to the thought of writing and recording new music.“
