AC/DC have revealed that they have completed work on their new album.

Frontman Brian Johnson, who collected an honorary doctorate from Northumbria University today, has said that the band have finished work on the LP, which they have been working on in Vancouver. It is likely to be released later this year or early next year.

"It was brilliant over there. We’re done. I’m very excited and we’ve got some great songs," he told Metal Hammer.

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.

Speculating on possible album titles, he revealed: "I wanted to call the album 'Man Down'. But it’s a bit negative and it was probably just straight from the heart. I like that."

Johnson received his honorary degree from Northumbria University’s vice chancellor Prof Andrew Wathey, who said that the frontman has been an "inspiration to the people of the North East and rock fans the world over.
Last month, Johnson said that the band were prepping a world tour for later this year.
