AC/DC to release new album ‘in next couple of years’

Brian Johnson says band will 'bloody try' to top 'Black Ice' tour

AC/DC have revealed plans to release a new album “within the next couple of years”.

The Australian stadium rockers have said they’ll tour again once they’ve finished the album, which will be the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Black Ice’.

Guitarist Angus Young told BANG Showbiz: “At some point we’ll be touring again once we get a new album out, which will hopefully be within the next couple of years.”

Frontman Brian Johnson also reiterated the band’s desire to top their last tour, commenting: “We’ll try to make the next tour even better, we’ll bloody try.”

The band are due to release a new live DVD ‘AC/DC: Live At River Plate’ on Monday (May 9). The show was filmed during their extensive 2009/2010 world tour, which took in 108 cities.

Young has recently discussed how AC/DC have “outlived” ever new genre of music that has come along since they formed in 1973.

“We have such diehard fans, old and new. We’ve survived many changing fashions of music – we’ve outlived the lot of them,” he commented.
