AC/DC UNLEASH NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “ROCK OR BUST”, TITLE TRACK OFF NEW ALBUM

Just days away from the release of their new studio album, AC/DC have unleashed the official music video for “Rock or Bust”, the album’s title track. The clip was directed by David Mallet, who has worked with the band for nearly 25 years. The band filmed the footage in two days at Black Island Studios in Middlesex, England. The video once again features former Shogun drummer Bob Richards who is filling in for Phil Rudd amid his ongoing legal issues. Their much-anticipated new album Rock or Bust drops on December 2 via Columbia Records. Two weeks ago, the band premiered the official music video for “Play Ball”, the album’s lead single. Stevie Young, nephew of lead guitarist Angus Young and former rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, maked his debut with the band in the video. Stevie played rhythm guitar on the new album and will tour with the band in 2015 in place of Malcolm who retired from the band a few months ago due to illness. The new album was produced by Brendan O’Brien and mixed by Mike Fraser, both of whom worked on the band’s previous effort Black Ice. The disc debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and sold over 784,000 copies in it’s first week of sales. It was one of only two albums the band released that decade (Stiff Upper Lip, 2000). The disc garnered the band the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for the track “War Machine”. Sadly, the new disc will be the band’s first without founding rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who recently announced his official retirement from the band due to illness. Tour dates are expected to be announced before the new year. AC/DC are undeniably one of the greatest music artists of all time. To date, the band has sold over 200 million albums worldwide and have produced some of hard rock and heavy metal’s biggest anthems.  – by Matt Bishop
