The 2-disc set will also feature three new songs, including their cover of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus.”

The Story So Far will be released on November 30th. You can pre-order it here.

Meanewhile, Def Leppard is getting into the holiday spirt with a new single. It’s called “We All Need Christmas." You can listen to that here.

Def Leppard will also release Hysteria: The Singles, a limited edition, 10-disc vinyl box set. It features all of the 7” singles from the multi-platinum album that brought the world “Pour Some Sugar on Me” in 1987.

That’s not the end of the Def Leppard news. The band’s first-ever live album Mirror Ball – Live & More just went gold. They were presented with a plaque to commemorate sales of 500,000 copies before their tour wrapped up this week in Inglewood, California.
