Def Leppard preview Let’s Go video

Def Leppard have issued a preview of the video for “Let’s Go”, the lead single from their forthcoming self-titled album.

The full clip will be available on October 30, the same day the band releases the follow-up to 2008’s “Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.”

“It has that swaggering, mid-tempo rhythm, like ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ and ‘Rock Of Ages’,” says Joe Elliott. "The idea was, we wanted something familiar. I mean, when AC/DC comes back after years away, you're not going to get ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ from 'em, you know? And you don't want it, either — you want ‘Back In Black,’ or something like it. For us, this is what we do. And it's something we enjoy doing.

“It's a call to arms, you know? Rick Savage wrote 80 percent of the song. I wrote the verses, he wrote all the music and the choruses. He came in with it, and we knew it was a classic Def Leppard song.”

Def Leppard recently announced dates for a US tour in the New Year with Styx and Tesla.

The trio just wrapped up an extensive series of fall North American shows and will regroup for another round starting January 27 in Greensboro, NC.
