Universal spokesman Peter Lofrumento said in an email, "Universal Music has been actively engaged with the band over the last several months hoping to reach an agreement as quickly as possible. They've offered the band a highly competitive deal that is on par with what their global superstar artists already receive."

Elliott said that he doesn't want to go to "war" and hopes Universal and Def Leppard can reach a new agreement. If not, band members are prepared to re-record in their spare time.
