Chatting with Planet Rock (via Blabbermouth), vocalist Joe Elliot noted that the each of the fresh tunes is tracked down and awaiting to enter the production and mixing process. As previously reported, the group is aiming to present the new release later this year.
Joe further branded the album as the band’s most honest effort to date that makes nearly their entire past opus sound like a collection of “dishonest” songs. The band is gearing up to unleash this baby onto the world with fury, and as Elliot put it, is hungry to prove all the naysayers wrong.
It’s been a while since we got to hear some top-notch tunes from the Leppard fold, hence some killer material is eagerly anticipated by the band’s fan base already. The group is currently touring as hard as always, delivering their staple hits to the world. You can check out the full tour itinerary right here at Rock to Tick, or read Joe’s statement below.
“Yes, I do sound very jolly, don’t I?! I’m jolly because we have finished the new album. Yes, well, apart from the mixing of it. We have sung our last word, played our last solo, hit our last drum. It’s done! And it will be out later this year. I’m looking forward to playing a few tunes from that later on.”
