Glam Metal band Def Leppard believes that in contemporary times,
there is no point in releasing a full length album. The 'Two Steps
Behind' hitmakers, who are woking on some new material for an
upcoming album, said that they feel today's generation have no time
to listen to a full length album. So they will work on the quality
of their songs instead of quantity.
Guitarist Vivian Campbell was quoted by artistdirect.com as
saying, “Next year we'll put out an album. I am not sure if it will
be a full-length. I don't see the point in putting out full-lengths
since the goal post has shifted. People are not interested in
full-lengths.It used to be 10-12 songs that the record company
wanted and you go into the studio and do the songs.Now, people
don't have time to listen to a full album. Very few will do that,
so we want to give people quality."
The band, which includes members, Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian
Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick Savage (bass) and
Rick Allen (drums) claim to have given up their typical 'rockstar'
attitudes to focus more into music . The band will be one of the
headliners in this year's Download Festival in England.
