AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson says it’s likely AC/DC will tour this year.

In a message posted to his Brian Johnson Racing website, the singer says his "day job" with AC/DC will be distracting him from producing more episodes of his TV series Cars That Rock for the time being.

Johnson writes: "We hope to bring you more shows in the near future but, of course, there is the slight distraction of my day job with AC/DC – and it looks very likely that we will be on the road again before the end of the year. So stand by for more music – and more Cars That Rock. thanks – Brian"

It was reported in April that founder member Malcolm Young would step down from the rock group due to ill health.

Rumours had circulated that the band might be forced to call it quits, but a statement published on AC/DC's Facebook page on April 16 said instead that Young will take a break from the group after four decades as a member.

"After 40 years of life dedicated to AC/DC, guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to ill health," it reads. "Malcolm would like to thank the group’s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support. In light of this news, AC/DC asks that Malcolm and his family’s privacy be respected during this time. The band will continue to make music."

AC/DC formed in November, 1973. Their last studio album was 2008's Brendan O'Brien-produced 'Black Ice'.
