AC/DC Planning to Record New Album Later in 2014
AC/DC hasn’t put together a full-length album since 2008’s Black Ice and until recently claimed a follow-up was not in the works.
The Australian band looks to be changing its tune, according to a recent interview with Florida radio station Gater 98.7. Frontman Brian Johnson revealed their plans to record, saying: "Really, because we’ve been denying anything, 'cause we weren’t sure…But I think we’ll be going into the studio in May in Vancouver. Which means, we should be getting ready.”
Also this year, Johnson revealed, the group has a tour scheduled for their 40th anniversary, with 40 gigs planned.
Right now, there’s no word who will be producing the release.
Black Ice marked AC/DC’s first release in eight years. Multiple delays lengthened the recording process: guitarist Cliff Williams experienced a head injury, while the group changed labels from Elektra to Sony.
Brendan O’Brien produced the release, which marked their 15th international studio album and consisted of 15 total songs. Upon its release, Black Ice went to No. 1 in the U.S. on the Billboard 200, in the U.K., and in Australia. Since that point, Black Ice has sold 2 million copies in the U.S.
