Def Leppard needs a new album title



Defleppard1 It must be a good day for album announcements. Shortly after Asia's news of their first disc in 25 years, Def Leppard said today they have completed work on a new studio album, which is expected to be released early this year.

The disc -- the band's first since 2002's "X" -- has the tentative title of "Songs from the Sparkle Lounge," according to

In addition, the band will support the album with a world arena tour with supporting acts Styx and REO Speedwagon. Presale for tickets begins today. More information is available on the band's official website.

The tour kicks off March 27 in Greensboro, N.C. (the same spot Van Halen chose for their reunion tour). Their second stop -- March 29 at the Hard Rock in Hollywood -- is the band's only Florida stop scheduled so far. (Click here for full list of dates.)
