An Extraordinary Remastering and Repackaging Of One Of The Most Revered Rock Albums Of All Time, Including Previously Unreleased Music & Video.


To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their iconic album “Pyromania”, Def Leppard are set to release a deluxe expanded edition in April 2024.

Fans can listen to ‘Photograph – Rough Mix Version (Unfinished Vocal)’ on all streaming platforms from Friday 1st March 2024. The track is an unreleased demo version from the band’s vaults of one of their most celebrated songs – taken from the forthcoming PYROMANIA anniversary edition.

Originally released in 1983, Pyromania launched Def Leppard into Rock Legend status. The album featured global hit singles ‘Photograph’, ‘Rock! Rock! (Till You Drop)’ and “Rock of Ages” and went on to achieve platinum status across the globe (including a No 2 chart entry in the USA).  Pyromania has since become one of the biggest selling rock albums of all time and alongside it’s follow up – “Hysteria” – has made Def Leppard one of only five rock bands in history to have two albums with a coveted RIAA Diamond Certification (over 10 million sales in the USA alone). A massive feat within the music industry still to this day.

The album also saw Phil Collen replace guitarist Pete Willis and the first of the classic Def Leppard line ups was born… In tribute to this milestone, this deluxe edition has been executive produced by lead singer Joe Elliott and Ronan McHugh with mastering by Andy Pearce.

This deluxe edition has been prepared in conjunction with lead singer Joe Elliott who has acted as executive producer. Pyromania, the 40th anniversary edition, will be released on 4-CD / Blu Ray Box, 1LP Half Speed Master, 2LP Black Vinyl, 2LP Coloured Vinyl (D2C Exclusive), 2CD and digitally.

This deluxe set comes with 4-CD’s consisting of the original album, a whole disc of unheard demos recently re-discovered by Joe Elliott while combing through the vaults, an unreleased demo “No You Can’t Do That” and two defining live shows from the era – from the LA Forum (USA) and Westfalen Halle in Dortmund (Germany).

The Blu Ray contains an Atmos mix of the album (overseen by Giles Martin) as well as 5.1 / Stereo and instrumental mixes. Also included are five promo videos from the time.

The abum also appears as a Half Speed Master for the first time. The book contains the history of the album written by Mojo and Classic Rock writer Paul Elliott (who has conducted new interviews with band members), as well as rare and unseen photos by noted photographer, and long time band collaborator, Ross Halfin.
