Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot Fronts New Band
DOWN ‘N OUTZ — a project fronted by DEF LEPPARD‘s Joe Elliott, backed by THE QUIREBOYS and playing rare tracks connected only by MOTT THE HOOPLE — recently filmed a video for “Overnight Angels”, the second radio single from the band’s debut album, “My ReGeneration”.
DOWN ‘N OUTZ recently parted ways with bass player Ronnie Garrity. Elliott stated: “Of course we wish Ronnie all the best in his future endeavors. We will announce a new bass player shortly, but I can say now that it won’t be [DEF LEPPARD bassist Rick Savage]!”
DOWN ‘N OUTZ will support Paul Rodgers (BAD COMPANY, FREE, QUEEN) on his U.K. tour in April 2011
Commented Elliott: “I’m very happy about this! I was personally invited by Paul to do this tour, and I can’t wait for it. Obviously the Sheffield show will be very special for me, but I’m also looking forward to play at the legendary Royal Albert Hall very much!”
Here is the video for the first single, “England Rocks”:
