ACDC New Album News

Recommended Posts

Malcolm Youngs unreleased rhythm guitar parts will be used on every song for new album.

http://loudwire.com/report-new-acdc-album-feature-malcolm-young-guitar/

Music/entertainment magazine JAM is reporting that a “reliable source inside the AC/DC camp” has confirmed to them that previously unreleased guitar parts from Malcolm Young will be featured on the rhythm section of every song from the band’s rumored new album. The report also alleges that the record will be dedicated to Malcolm.

The late AC/DC guitarist and co-founder died on Nov. 18, 2017 at the age of 64. A statement on AC/DC’s website at the time revealed that Malcolm had been suffering from dementia and “passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside.”

JAM reports that Malcolm had recorded a number of songs with Angus in 2003 when the two lived together between AC/DC’s Stiff Upper Lip and Black Ice album cycles. Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams and Brian Johnson are allegedly joining Angus in the process of choosing which songs to use and recording their respective parts around Malcolm’s takes.

In Aug. rumors of AC/DC being in the studio began to circulate. A short time later, photos surfaced of vocalist Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd together outside Vancouver’s Warehouse Studios, which is where the last three AC/DC albums were recorded. This sparked rumors that the two members had re-joined the band after tumultuous periods away from the rest of the group. Johnson exited the band in 2016 after suffering serious hearing issues, while Rudd was charged with attempting to procure a murder, threatening to kill and possession of meth and cannabis in 2014.

Most recently, drummer Chris Slade said he hasn’t seen the rest of AC/DC since the end of their last Rock or Bust tour. Slade has filled Rudd’s position on tours since his charges.

You can read JAM‘s full report, which was posted directly to their Facebook page, below. As of press time, none of this information has been confirmed to us by anyone from the AC/DC camp.

AC/DC SCOOP!
We are hearing from a reliable source inside the AC/DC camp that Angus Young is working on a new AC/DC Album that will be dedicated to his brother, the late Malcolm Young.

Here’s the exciting part… the new recordings will include Malcolm Young playing rhythm guitar on ALL TRACKS!

Turns out, five years prior to the Black Ice LP, AC/DC’s 15th studio release, Angus and Malcolm Young lived to together where they literally wrote hundreds of songs, many were recorded and have been stashed away until now.

Angus has decided to selected the best tracks from those recordings that Malcolm played on and is now back in the studio recording and mixing them with fellow band mates Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams and yes, Brian Johnson on vocals.

Not sure when the release date will be announced but this should give all the Hardcore AC/DC fans a hard on!

Hopefully there's a few good riffs in there to work with. Keeping close interest with what's happening with the guys, hopefully whatever they put out, it'll be better than their last few releases.

Even though I would prefer an album with axl it sounds like acdc are trying to keep this album as a last hurrarah with the long term members before retiring.

This will be a tribute to Malcolm and a grand finale for AC/DC.  I'm sure they will do one last tour before calling it a day.

If this will be the last AC/DC album and if Brian will be on vocals, I hope that Axl's gonna be a quest vocalist even just on one song. He did such a great job with AC/DC and he was looking forward to making an album with them, so it would be nice if he'd get the chance to be a part of this in some way.

Would be cool, yes. But that would be very unusual for AC/DC, I don't think they're gonna do that. Maybe after AC/DC is officialy over, Angus will team up with Axl to do some project?

It’s time to move on folks. Axl guesting on one song? Definite wishful thinking at this point. Axl did a fine job and of course us Guns fans were excited about hearing him on an album, but he literally has no place on a Malcolm tribute when Brian is there.

It's probably better this way. I saw a show with Axl in Düsseldorf, an official blu ray would be nice, but even that seems out of place now. Chances are better at this point to have a song with Angus on a new GnR album maybe?

I agree because i feel this will be the last ac/dc record, and this record may be the bands final swansong. Ive never seen ac/dc live, if they do a tour of oz as part of this record i will be in sydney seeing them with bells on.Im sure angus will retire the name after any tour that follows the release.

If GNR make a record or anything related to an official release with the current lineup if it takes them longer than what it has with angus making a new record for ac/dc it will be a joke.

It certainly will. ACDC notoriously takes their time between album cycles and tours (they have nothing to prove now, so why not?). Couple that with a lineup changes and drama, and the death of Malcolm it hasnt Even been that long for them considering the Rock or Bust Tour ended only 2 years ago.

Only issue with Brian is that he sounds really rough now. I worry if he could maintain a 1.5-2 hour performance a night tour with his current state.

I'm glad that AC/DC fans get Brain on another album, but with Axl out, my interest is gone.

I always thought that he started off 2015 sounding better than the Black Ice tour. Not bad for a 68 year old deaf guy and certainly better than whatever Axl is currently doing with Guns.

2016 was brutal for Brian, yeah. Off key and off time. However, if they’ve got his hearing under control and he does a bit of voice coaching with more sporadic tour dates I think he’ll be fine.

In my opinion he sounds consistently bad since I don't know 1993? But even back in 1991 he had problems with high notes, for example, in Hells Bells. Tbh I really like his voice only in early 80s. Then he started to sound rough and too nasal

Possibly. I still think Axl should’ve been the direction the band went in- would’ve breathed some fresh air and blood into the band and even if he’s really bad vocally with Guns he cares more with AC/DC to learn the material effectively. However I understand the other side of the coin- Brian brings more legitimacy to the AC/DC name and after seeing the shit Axl got for his 2001-2014 stint im glad Angus isn’t going out under a NuAC/DC band.

This album will be with Brian.I think Axl only helped the guys from ACDC with the tour and he will try to make an album with Slash..

This , Axl will be nowhere near the final bow for AC/DC  nor should he .. after the bow the 2 may team up .

Glad Brian's back too, but I am Interested in hearing Axl at some point on an Angus young or AC/DC song or record.

Just been reading the AC/DC forum and they seem to think maybe Phil and Brian are just there for recording and aren’t going to be part of any future touring. 

I hope there isn’t any truth to that and then Axl is only used for just touring.

Yeah, kind of. Someone who posts there who has given them good info before said he’s been told Phil won’t be on stage and Brian is done with touring. 

It’d be crazy if they did an album with one lineup and then tour with another. I hope that’s not the case.
