July 17, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): The lead singer of British rock group, Joe Elliott released the debut album from his side project, Down ‘n’ Outz; however that doesn’t mean that his band is staying dormant. Def Leppard plans for some archival stuff in the next year. Elliott informed which is taking a break from touring, in 2010 would soon be putting together a live album from its tour of 2009. This compilation might just include some new stuff as well.

Joe reveals that the band has got provisional plans to do a four-or five-track EP of newer material which would be part of the archival CD. He says that they’ve been influenced by earlier gig releases as “Alive II’ by Kiss, Ian Hunter’s “Welcome to the Club’ and even the live CD of Genesis’ entitled “Three Sides Live’. Co-incidentally, all of these releases contained some new songs.

The proposed set will in fact be Def Leppard’s debut full-scale album of live material. So far the band has only released recordings of their concerts on various compilations and they have also released some fresh exclusive editions of their earlier hit albums like “Pyromania’, “Hysteria’, and “Adrenalize’. This release would also be Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard’s guitarist) first ever appearance on a live record.
