DEF LEPPARD Discuss The New KICK Promo Video From Diamond Star Halos (Video/Pics)

Def Leppard 2022. Def Leppard 2022

Def Leppard discussed the new KICK promo video from the new album Diamond Star Halos during the shoot in February.

'Diamond Star Halos' will be the band's 12th studio album.

The first studio album since 2015 was announced on 17th March and is out on Friday 27th May 2022.

The single 'Kick' was released on the same day and the promo video released on 25th March.

The video was directed by Anuk Rohde.

The location was the Ken Fox Troupe Wall Of Death HQ in Ely which is just north of Cambridge in Cambridgeshire, England.

The band discussed the video during the shoot which took place on 8th February 2022.

The Wall Of Death owners had revealed that the shoot had taken place in early February with the exact date now confirmed.

As already noted the video resembles the classic 'Animal' promo which was shot with a circus troupe near Amsterdam in 1987.

Mentioned by both Rick and Sav during the video which can be seen below along with a full transcript and screenshots.

Joe spoke briefly about making some "videos" for the new album recently in the UK on his Planet Rock radio show.

His mention of London (along with Cambridgeshire) suggests the video for 'Fire It Up' was filmed there around the same time as this video.

'Fire It Up' having been mentioned as another upcoming single along with 'This Guitar' and presumably set to be released around the same time as the album in May.

Watch the new video now on the Official YouTube channel.

As you can see from this video of the Ken Fox Troupe YouTube channel Def Leppard are not the only band to have filmed inside the Wall Of Death and it was also used by BBC One for its title sequence.

Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher's old band Beady Eye filmed their video for The Roller in the same place in 2011.

Def Leppard Kick - 8th February 2022 Quotes - (Transcribed by dltourhistory)

Phil Collen - "So here we are in our car up to Cambridge actually where we're gonna shoot the video for Kick. As you can see out the window it's all lovely and English countrside-ish. So yeah that's where we're doing our Wall Of Death video. So interesting to see that."

Rick Savage - "Here we are just North of Cambridge in a rather rather cold field with a cricus. It's got echoes of the Animal video so many years ago."

Rick Allen - "It kinda reminds me a little bit of when we did the Animal video back in Holland for Hysteria. So we're gonna be doing the Wall Of Death. Well not personally. I guess there's a couple of guys on motorcycles."

Rick Savage - "Hello Cambridge."

Joe Elliott - "Captain's Log. Star date February 8th 2022. Cambridgeshire. Sexy. Wall Of Death. Sounds really inviting doesn't it. But it's one of those things where the bikes go round and they get momentum and they dtay sideways and thy go round until they fall off."

Joe Elliott - "Our first song off this new album Diamond Star Halos. Song is called Kick. And we are going to kick some booty in this Wall Of Death. Oh god. Ca we call it the Wall Of Life?. Sounds so much more optimistic doesn't it. I'll see you int a bit."

Rick Savage - "In true Def Leppard colour. Yellow and red. Perfect."

Joe Elliott - "Captain's Log. here we are at the Wall Of Death. We are done except for this one last shot. Where we have to film ourselves. Or sorry they film us stood round this car. Looks a bit like the Rocket video actually with loads of TVs. We've done the inside bit. It was way too cold. It's actually warmer out here than it was in there. Yeah I gotta go!."

Phil Collen - "It's f**king freezing!."
