After plenty of media speculation and fan's voicing their thoughts, lead singer Brian Johnson finally came out to say that while Malcolm was ill, the band would not only continue on, but also begin writing a new album! This got many fans, old and new, very excited to hear new material, and today, even more great news was announced! The band told sources that the upcoming album would be entitled "Rock or Bust" and should arrive on December 2nd! As a long-time AC/DC fan, I personally find this title incredibly fitting for the group's style, and holy hell, a release before 2014 is over?! This is just too much!Well, not all good things are perfect, and sadly the group did also confirm that Malcolm's illness has continued- to the point where he will likely never play with the band again. But, thankfully for fans, the band will 'tour extensively' in 2015! So, all of this crazy news might leave you all wondering, who will provide the guitar to back up Angus?
Why not keep it in the family? Stevie Young, the nephew of Angus and Malcolm will take the stage with the band! Stevie will also be providing the rhythm guitar on the new studio tracks for "Rock or Bust"! Most importantly, for everyone, 11 new AC/DC tracks are coming; and that is sure to please all those who are about to rock!
