DEF LEPPARD Release "Kick" Music Video Behind The Scenes Vlog

In the new video below, follow Def Leppard behind the scenes on the set of the music video for "Kick", the first single off the upcoming album, Diamond Star Halos.

The official "Kick" music video and bloopers from the shoot can be found below.

Def Leppard bounds back onto Billboard's Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, as its new single, “Kick”, debuts at #39 on the list dated April 9. The group reaches the ranking for the first time since March 2003, adding its 30th entry on the chart.

Def Leppard first appeared on Mainstream Rock Airplay with “Let It Go,” at its #34 best on the August 22, 1981, tally. The band boasts five #1s, among 17 Top 10s: “Photograph” (for six weeks beginning in March 1983); “Rock Of Ages” (one, June 1983); “Let’s Get Rocked” (one, April 1992); “Stand Up (Kick Love Into Motion)” (five, beginning in January 1993); and “Promises” (three, beginning in June 1999).

The band tallied six of its Top 10s from its landmark 1987 album Hysteria, reaching #3 bests with both “Love Bites” (which also topped the Billboard Hot 100) and “Armageddon It.”

Def Leppard released their twelfth full-length album, Diamond Star Halos, on May 27 via UMe. It marks the band’s first new work since 2015’s chart-topping self-titled, Def Leppard.

Diamond Star Halos can be ordered in multiple configurations, including a Deluxe Edition, 2LP Vinyl, Digital formats and more. Exclusive bundles including newly designed album merch have also launched. Order at the band’s official store, here.

The artwork for Diamond Star Halos is art in itself. The design follows pedigree with their instantly recognizable album covers from their celebrated past. With images by world renowned photographer and director Anton Corbijn, styling concepts by Maryam Malakpour and graphics by the UK based Munden Brothers, the design truly follows the band’s influence through their eyes today.

Written by the band over the past two years it features 15 tracks including the anthemic, stadium-ready singles “Kick” and “Fire It Up”, with guest vocals from Alison Krauss on “This Guitar” and “Lifeless”.  The album title references T. Rex’s “Bang A Gong (Get It On)” with nods to T.Rex, David Bowie and Mott The Hoople across the album, which mixes the sound of their classic spirit with modern fire.
