AC/DC Recording New Album!

acdcAC/DC have finished recording their latest studio album! 

Unfortunately, due to guitarist Malcolm Young‘s current health issues, the legendary axe man was unable to contribute. Despite this, Stevie Young (Malcolm’s nephew) was recruited to fill the void, laying down guitar work that singer Brian Johnson labelled as “magnificent.”

AC/DC’s follow-up to 2008′s ‘Black Ice’ will be the newest release in the legendary band’s storied career, and will be the first album that AC/DC has ever released without Malcolm Young’s playing.

Brian Johnson: “It was brilliant over there.”… “We’re done. I’m very excited and we’ve got some great songs.”…“I wanted to call the album Man Down.” the singer reveals. “But it’s a bit negative and it was probably just straight from the heart. I like that.”

Johnson adds, “We miss Malcolm obviously. He’s a fighter. He’s in hospital but he’s a fighter. We’ve got our fingers crossed that he’ll get strong again. Stevie, Malcolm’s nephew, was magnificent, but when you’re recording with this thing hanging over you and your work mate isn’t well, it’s difficult. But I’m sure he was rooting for us. He’s such a strong man. He’s a small guy but he’s very strong. He’s proud and he’s very private so we can’t say too much. But fingers crossed he’ll be back.”

In other AC/DC news, Brian Johnson was just awarded with an honorary doctorate by Northumbria University in Newcastle, England.
