Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott was interviewed by Uber Rock to promote the Down 'n' Outz and talked about the 2015 studio album release.

Joe talked about The Who show, Down 'n' Outz, living in Dublin, Vivian's health, band tragedies, (the awful) VH1 Hysteria movie, the 2015 UK tour, the next studio album, co-headline tours, playing rare songs and possibly re-recording older songs like Glad I'm Alive.

Joe says the 2015 studio album should be out by May which is a slight change from recent interviews where he (and others) said "Spring".

Joe recently said the band were happy with the 15 songs they'd written for the album and that it's "the kind of record that we should be making at this stage of our career".

Uber Rock - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

2015 Album release

"It's going to be next year for sure. Absolutely we're going to do a British tour next year. We do have a tentative plan for a tour, so it's just fitting it in. The album hopefully will be out about May or something like that, so the tour is probably going to be towards September or whenever. But it's so early right now and we're just trying to get it all in place."

Vivian Campbell's Health

"He's just had stem cell surgery, and he was released from hospital about two days ago. So he's home recuperating. From what I've been lead to believe, he's going to be great, he's going to be fine. From what I've been told it was a successful operation, and there's no reason why he can't make a full recovery."
