Subscribe to Loudwire on

It’s time to get hysterical over Def Leppard‘s Hysteria once again. The band is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their Mutt Lange-produced monster album with a brand new remastered box set. The Def Lep classic in its latest form will be released by Universal on Aug. 4.

You can look for the Def Leppard Hysteria box set being reissued in multiple formats — a single disc “vanilla” version, a 3-CD version, a 2-LP version on black vinyl, a 2-LP “Direct to Consumer” version on a limited edition colored vinyl, and there’s also an all encompassing 5-CD/2DVD Super Deluxe Edition package.

The deluxe edition features rare tracks, b-sides, radio edits, extended versions, alternate mixes and the BBC Radio “Classic Albums” documentary on the Hysteria album. Meanwhile, the Super Deluxe Edition tacks on four books, including one that tells the story of the album, one that’s a Ross Halfin photo book and one that is a vintage tour program. The bonus CDs in the Super Deluxe Edition feature an audio version of the Live: In the Round 1989 concert film, while the two DVDs include the band’s promotional videos plus additional live performances and the “Classic Albums” documentary.

“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,” explained frontman Joe Elliott. “The Hysteria album was a labor 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.” A trailer for the remastered box set can be seen above.

Hysteria featured a whopping seven singles — “Women,” “Animal,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” “Love Bites,” “Armageddon It” and “Rocket” as well as the title track. The album is diamond certified in the U.S., having surpassed 12 million copies sold. Check out the full track listing for the Super Deluxe Edition below and if you’re interested in placing a pre-order on one of the packages, you can see what’s available here.
