Vivian Campbell/98.7 The Shark - May 2022 Interview Quotes - (Transcribed by dltourhistory)
Diamond Star Halos Album Excitement
"Yeah we feel like there's a real buzz about the record. I mean there's certainly a buzz with our record label."
"It's the first time we've worked wiht a major label again in well over a decade."
"So it's great to be back in that situation and especially so because there is genuine excitement at the label about the record."
"They're very very enthusiastic. We personally are very enthusiastic about the record."
"We're very bullish about it. We're gonna go out and play a bunch of these new songs on The Stadium Tour."
"And that's always exciting for us. Any time we can go out and represent new music."
"And you never know, we'll see what happens with this."
"But everything down to even like the artwork on the record. You know on the vinyl, it's a double gatefold sleeve. And the artwork is just incredible."
"And everything about this record is shaping up to be, you know, a bit more than what we were expecting."
Different way of recording
"Oy yeah totally. We've never done a record remotely like this."
"We have the experience. I mean, you know, we've made so many records in the past and just the way that Def Leppard records anyway, even when we're all together I think kinda has set us up to be able to work like this."
"You know for me personally as I've said before it was a bit of a technical challenge to get over the hump of actually getting the sound into the box."
"But, you know, once I got over that it was actually very relaxing to work this way."
"You know to work entirely on my own schedule without any sort of pressure really allowed me to be more reflective about the parts that I was doing and to really think them over and go back and revisit them and hone them."
"And make them better and, you know, I think everyone kind of felt the same way about this."
"And like I said though we have the experience to know that the parts that we're sending in are of a certain quality, you know, that is to be expected."
"You know I'm not sure that a bunch of could make their first album this way. So we're not 20 any more."
