Def Leppard 'don't see the point' in releasing full-length albums

June 8, 2011 - Washington

English rock band Def Leppard has hinted they will stop releasing full length albums, saying people don't have the time to listen to them.

The 'Pour Some Sugar on Me' rockers are set to work on new material for release next year, but aren't likely to write a full length album.

"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," Contactmusic quoted guitarist Vivian Campbell as saying.

"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," he added.
