Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott was recently interviewed and mentioned the band's plans for a vinyl box set.

Joe was speaking to Rolling Stone to promote the band's UK/US tours and streaming deal.

A vinyl box set was first rumoured last year when news of 'The Def Leppard E.P.' Record Store Day reissue surfaced. It is likely to be similar to ones released by Bon Jovi and Queen also on the UMC label.

Joe talked about the 2018 North American tour with Journey, new music and forthcoming archive releases.

Joe also seems to confirm that new music will now not be released until 2019 with a full studio album unlikely until 2020.

Visit the Album News section for more news on new music (based on band member quotes).

Rolling Stone - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Vinyl Box Set/Archive Releases

"We started to discover a few things and were like, 'I forgot about that.'" They have plans for vinyl box sets and the release of previously unreleased live material, though he doesn't say what specifically is coming down the pike."

"There's a lot of new, old material coming out."

New Music

"We're not contracted to record anything," he says, "When we've got enough material to make a new record, we will. The new, new material will just have to take a backseat for a while."

2018 North American Tour

"The fact that we're touring with Journey, and it's putting us into huge arenas like Madison Square Garden and stadiums, that is very special for us."
