Brace yourself. You’re about to be Thunderstruck. Heavy metal legends AC/DC have announced that they are set to hit the studio in May to begin work on their upcoming 17th studio album. It will be the follow-up to 2008’s critically acclaimed Black Ice, which 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”. The band plans to enter a recording studio in Vancouver in May to begin work on the record. To support it, and to honor their monumental 40th anniversary, frontman Brian Johnson told West Palm Beach, FL’s 98.7 The Gator that the band will attempt to mount a 40-show world tour. “It’s been 40 years of the band’s existence, so I think we’re gonna try to do 40 gigs, 40 shows, to thank the fans for their undying loyalty,” Johnson stated. “I mean, honestly, our fans are just the best in the world, and we appreciate every one of them. So, like I said, we’ll have to go out, even though we’re getting a bit long in the tooth.” 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
