BrianJohnson AC/DC will reportedly be entering a studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in May, reports

The news was revealed on Friday, February 14th by the band’s lead singer, Brian Johnson, during a surprise phone call he gave to Andy Preston of the 98.7 The Gater radio station in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Asked if AC/DC is planning to do anything this year, Johnson told Preston: “Well, you’ll be the first one to know, really, because we’ve been denying anything, ’cause we weren’t sure. One of our boys was pretty ill, so we didn’t like to say anything, and we’re very private about things like this, so we didn’t wanna say anything. And he’s a very proud man. But I think we’ll be going into the studio in May in Vancouver. Which means, we should be getting ready. 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. 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. [laughs]”

He added: “You know what?! It’s been four years [since we last went out on the road], and I’m really looking forward to it.”

AC/DC’s lastest release was 2008’s Black Ice.

    Awesome news! The thunder from down under gearing up for another go. Amazing these guys can still rock and put on a world class show after all these years. I’ve promised my son who’s 9 and as big a fan as me that acdc will be his first concert. Him and I take road trips just to rock out to (in my opinion) the greatest rock and roll band of all time. Nobody brings it live like ac/dc. This will mean so much to me as a dad to see the look on his face when he sees angus for the first time and hear him strike up that first power chord. You’ll probably see a grown man with tears streaming down his face. Starting to save my pennies today.

    From reading these posts most of the people here feel AC/DC has been phoning it in for the past 20 years. That couldn’t be more inaccurate. Their main musical lull was in the early-mid 80’s. Then came the overproduced Razor’s Edge which had a couple of AC/DC classics (Thunderstruck, Money Talks). Despite it’s commercial success, the album was pretty awful. Once they got to Ballbreaker, it was a back-to-basics approach of their blues-rock roots and they’ve been doing that ever since. Their albums have gotten progressively better since Ballbreaker. And Ballbreaker was a solid album. While the stuff they’ve put out in the past 15 years may not make them any new fans, it’s more than enough to keep the old ones happy. oh, and DR ‘AC/DC never put out a masterpiece?’ is the single stupidest statement I’ve ever heard in my life. Does Highway to Hell or Back in Black ring a bell? If you don’t believe those albums are masterpieces you may want to stop posting here as you are no fan of hard rock.
