AC/DC album update: There is no album

Artist News


AC/DC’s next album, the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Black Ice’, is not on the way any time soon. This news comes despite previous claims by frontman Brian Johnson that fans could expect new material within a year.

Speaking to Classic Rock, guitarist Malcolm Young said: “You know what Brian’s like. He just says things and then walks away. It’ll be a little while – a year or two anyway. I’ve been doing some jamming on some song ideas but I do that all the time, as do the rest of the band. We are still working. But we had a long rest between ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ and ‘Black Ice’, so I think we need a couple of years to recuperate and work on [the new record] a bit more”.
