Def Leppard’s new album “Drastic Symphonies” reaches #4 in the UK Album Chart


Def Leppard have just secured their highest UK  album chart position in 32 years with “Drastic Symphonies”. The album goes one better than 2022’s “Diamond Star Halos” that charted at No 5 in the UK album charts.

Joe Elliott says, “Wow. For us  to get to No 4 in the UK charts with “Drastic Symphonies” is just  very, very special. Especially as this album has us doing something very different in reimagining some of our biggest hits along with hidden gems with The amazing Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Add in two really special shows in our hometown of Sheffield – headlining The Leadmill for Music Venue Trust and then a sold out Bramall Lane to kick off the European leg of The World Tour with Motley Crue. It’s been an extraordinary week. Thanks to all our British fans and to all those who travelled in from around the world. We are grateful and truly humbled.”

This iconic UK band remain one of the most important, influential and loved British acts, delighting existing fans and winning over a whole new generation.

Rock and Classical royalty unite on a brand-new euphoric album titled “Drastic Symphonies” – Def Leppard’s greatest produced tracks dramatically reimagined and sounding larger and more exhilarating than ever before, teamed with London’s iconic The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Def Leppard have deconstructed and rebuilt not only some of their most well known tracks but also some of their hidden gems as well. This album represents a bold new approach to Def Leppard’s most loved songs.
