The tour will begin a mere two days after the Def Leppard Cruise returns to Miami, and will continue promoting the band’s upcoming self-titled release, due out October 30th.

“Let’s Go” is the lead track from the new studio album, their first since 2008’s Songs From The Sparkle Lounge. “We went in to record a single and wrote 12 songs,” guitarist Phil Collen told Ultimate Classic Rock. “There was no pressure from record executives or anyone. Every song was inspired and it’s something we haven’t done before. It’s the reason that you get into a band in the first place, to make music that you enjoy. It wasn’t for the fans, it wasn’t for a record company and it wasn’t for the industry — it was for us.”
