What Has Nine Arms And Plans To Enter The Studio?

Gunter glieben glauten globen.

According to ultimateclassicrock.com, Def Leppard are heading to the studio next month to begin recording their new album. That’s huge news since they haven’t put anything out in six years (2008′s ‘Songs from the Sparkle Lounge’).

I was excited to hear the news until I read what guitarist Phil Collen had to say about the early demos.

“We’re all excited and buzzy about new material. I can’t remember the last time we were like that.”

For as long as I’ve been paying attention to bands describing their latest project, I’ve heard almost the exact same sentiment. It’s as if they just copy and paste it. Maybe there’s a secret library only rock stars can enter, containing one giant book filled with five handy cliches to give the press about your latest album. Maybe they cover its contents in rock star school, perhaps it’s written on the back of the first platinum album your group receives.

1. Always say you’re “excited” to get into the studio

2. Mention it’s some of the “best stuff” you’ve put together in years.

3. Are you an older band? Stress the ENERGY that is going into the project.

4. Use the word “raw” to describe the sound.

5. Throw out the sincere possibility of it being the “best thing we’ve ever recorded.”
