Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Def Leppard recently unveiled plans for a new album, Diamond Star Halos, which will be released on May 27 — just ahead of this summer’s Stadium Tour alongside Motley Crue, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Poison.

The record’s lead single is “Kick,” a track tailor-made for fist-pumping and singing from the masses. Def Leppard debuted a new video for the track recently, and it finds the band in a nighttime carnival setting, all kinds of things going on around the rockers as they perform the song:

Judging by the high-energy nature of the new song, it seems likely that Def Leppard (singer Joe Elliott, bassist Rick Savage, drummer Rick Allen, guitarist Phil Collen and guitarist Vivian Campbell) will make it a set list staple this summer and beyond.
