Rumors of a new AC/DC album have been heating up ever since photos leaked of various members of the group at Vancouver’s Warehouse Studio, and now it looks like there is some more exciting news. JAM Magazine are reporting that a “reliable source inside the AC/DC camp” has told them that the band’s upcoming album will feature the late Malcolm Young’s rhythm guitar on every song. The guitar tracks are said to have been recorded five years before “Black Ice” was released.
JAM Magazine posted the following on Facebook:
We are hearing from a reliable source inside the AC/DC camp that Angus Young is working on a new AC/DC Album that will be dedicated to his brother, the late Malcolm Young.
Here’s the exciting part… the new recordings will include Malcolm Young playing rhythm guitar on ALL TRACKS!
Turns out, five years prior to the Black Ice LP, AC/DC’s 15th studio release, Angus and Malcolm Young lived to together where they literally wrote hundreds of songs, many were recorded and have been stashed away until now.
Angus has decided to selected the best tracks from those recordings that Malcolm played on and is now back in the studio recording and mixing them with fellow band mates Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams and yes, Brian Johnson on vocals.
Not sure when the release date will be announced but this should give all the Hardcore AC/DC fans a hard on!
