Def Leppard just announced a career-spanning box set series, with the first of four packages to be launched on June 1. Volume One contains the band’s first four studio albums — On Through the Night (1980), High ’n’ Dry (1981), Pyromania (1983) and Hysteria (1987), to be presented in eight-LP and seven-CD editions. The set is presented in a brand new sleeve, complete with a hardback book, a replica of the band’s self-titled 1979 EP and written introductions by singer Joe Elliott, guitarist Phil Collen, bassist Rick Savage and drummer Rick Allen. Def Leppard’s Volume One is now available for pre-order on vinyl and CD; details on the next three sets will be revealed later. Def Leppard will also be touring with Journey this summer throughout the U.S.
