AC/DC / Back in business and back in black

The AC/DC promotional campaign gathers speed and the band have confirmed that Angus will be joined by singer Brian Johnson, guitarist Stevie Young, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd for the new ‘PWR/UP’ album.

The anticipated follow-up to 2014’s ‘Rock Or Bust’ will mark the return of Johnson, who was replaced mid-tour in 2016 by Axl Rose due to Johnson’s heath problems.

Rudd was replaced before the tour by Chris Slade due to legal difficulties, while Williams retired at the end of the tour.

Last year Dee Snider told his twitter fans that the band were back together, working on material which Malcolm Young had contributed to, before his death in 2017.
