Vivian Campbell 2013.
Las Vegas, NV April 2013

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell was interviewed last week by DJ Eddie Wilson and commented on the new album and touring.

Vivian talked about joining the band in 1992, being in DIO/Whitesnake, the new 2015 studio album, the 2016 tour, the setlist, the Hysteria On The High Seas cruise, the In The Round tours and whether they'd do that again.

Unlike Joe and Phil in many recent interviews Vivian declines to confirm the DEF LEPPARD "self-titled" album title and just hints it at as he did back in March.

As Phil has said in past interviews he talked about the band extending the current tour into 2016 with another run of US shows next summer to support the album.

95.9 VOS-FM - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

The New Def Leppard Studio Album

"The band continues to make new music. We actually have a new record coming out this Fall. Which I gotta say in the 23 years that I've been with Def Leppard it's the strongest record that we've made in that time period."

Album Release

"It is actually we're just starting to mix the record. We're taking our time on it. We didn't get it out out obviously in time for this summer tour. So we figured we'll put it out in the Fall and as soon as a track goes to radio, the lead track, we will start featuring that in our live shows. But I actually don't know when that's gonna be."

Nothing Brand New For This Tour?/2016 Tour

"You won't hear it this summer but the good news for us is this gives us an excuse to take it into next year. We will be touring next summer as well. So and obviously we'll be featuring the new record heavily on that."

The Album Title?

"I can tell you it's not too imaginative. So let's leave it at that."

Touring In 2016

"And then like I say because the new record's coming out we'll be touring into 2016. So it's a busy couple of years for us. This year's been really busy. As will 2016 be you know then maybe we'll take a year off."
