Fresh from their induction into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Def Leppard have announced the second volume in their career-spanning box set collection.

The Sheffield outfit launched Volume One last summer, which featured 1980’s On Through The Night, 1981’s High ’N’ Dry, 1983’s Pyromania and 1987’s Hysteria, along with live tracks and bonus material.

Now they’ve announced that Volume Two will arrive on June 21 via UME/Virgin, bringing together 1992’s Adrenalize, 1993’s Retro Active, 1996’s Slang and 1999’s Euphoria.

It’ll launch both as a 10LP set, with each remastered disc pressed on 180g vinyl and as a limited edition CD set.

Also included in the package will be Rarities Vol. 2 and Vol. 3, which will feature rare tracks, b-sides and live recordings from the 90s, which have been compiled by Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott.

The box set will also include a 40-page hardback book featuring photographs from Ross Halfin and introductions written by Elliott, bassist Rick Savage, drummer Rick Allen and guitarist Phil Collen.

Find further details below.

Def Leppard’s induction into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame will be televised on HBO tomorrow night at 8pm ET.

Def Leppard will headline Download UK this summer and embark on a tour of Canada over the summer. The band’s Las Vegas residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino will get under way in August.
