It’s been six years since AC/DC’s last studio album Rock Or Bust was released. Since then, the hard rock band has been through some tough times from Brian Johnson’s hearing issues to the tragic death of Malcolm Young in 2017. But now AC/DC’s new album has reportedly been recorded, as Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider gives an exciting update for fans.
Speaking with ABC, Snider revealed AC/DC’s new album is done, but “has been delayed” due to the pandemic.
Describing the incredible record, he said: “This is gonna be a miracle of technology.
“What will be achieved, the reuniting of the band that we know for one more album, is gonna be uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time.
“Because nothing goes on forever. But this is the ultimate ‘one more time.’”
Appearing in a virtual celebration of the album hosted by Consequence of Sound, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash revealed his favourite AC/DC song and guitar solo of the record.
On the first time he heard Back in Black, he said: “First I ever heard it was at my friend Matt Cassel’s house.
“So this was 1980 and this was a crucial point in Rock and Roll at that time because all my favourite bands had disbanded or members had died. And there was a lot of new music, but nothing really turned me on that much.”
The Guns N’ Roses guitarist had been familiar with a couple of AC/DC songs like Highway to Hell, but he wasn’t aware that the band had a new singer in Brian Johnson after Bon Scott’s death that year.
