Def Leppard Announce Expanded 30th Anniversary ‘Hysteria’ Reissue

Def Leppard‘s smash hit Hysteria LP is getting bulked up for its 30th anniversary.

Rolling Stone has the details on the latest edition of the album, which is set to arrive in stores Aug. 4 — nearly 30 years to the day after its original release — in a variety of configurations offering everything from a single-disc remaster to a seven-disc box stuffed with bonus material.

“During our 40-year career, we’ve been blessed to have experienced some incredible highs, work with some amazing people and enjoy success beyond our wildest dreams,” singer Joe Elliott told the magazine. “The Hysteria album was a labour of love, of that there is no doubt. But we’ve always believed you get what you give, and the longevity of the album is testimony to our sold belief in ourselves and the music.”

In addition to the single-disc “vanilla” remaster, Hysteria is being reissued in a pair of two-LP vinyl editions (one colored), a triple-disc “deluxe” edition that adds a slew of B-sides, radio edits and remixes, and finally the aforementioned box, which tacks on the audio version of the band’s In the Round, In Your Face concert film as well as an array of promo videos, live performances and the Classic Albums documentary on the album, plus four books.

Hysteria‘s 30th anniversary reissue, which is available to pre-order now, marks the record’s second return to stores. As many fans no doubt recall, it was previously expanded to double-disc length to commemorate its 20th anniversary.
