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.’”
Snider previously tweeted last December that rejoining Angus Young is singer Brian Johnson, whose hearing is “good”.
While they’re also reunited with drummer Phil Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams.
The Twisted Sister singer claimed: “All four surviving members have reunited WITH tracks recorded by Malcolm while he was still alive.
“Malcolm’s nephew Stevie Young is replacing him (he’s done this a couple of times before). It’s as close as you can get to the original band.”
Considering its AC/DC’s 50th anniversary in 2023, hopefully this album will be complemented by another world tour.
By the sounds of it, this could be the final record from the band as they pay tribute to Malcolm.
So what better way to celebrate him and a half century of AC/DC than with the ultimate goodbye world tour.
The band celebrated Back in Black’s 40th anniversary just this last weekend – an album that is the best-selling band record of all 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.
The 55-year-old recalled: “All of a sudden Back in Black came out and it was like a battle cry for Rock and Roll and Heavy Metal at that time.
“It was a killer record from start to finish; every song was good. The single Back and Black was as good as a Rock and Roll single gets.
“I think one of my favourite songs on the record was Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution.
“Even to this day, one of my favourite guitar solos of all time is in Hells Bells. That particular record, it was pivotal for me.”
