That’s how I feel too - I’m fine with Mark, Simon, or Chris coming back into the fold. Axl as well should Brian ever decide to step down (He is AC/DC alumni now, after all). But I just don’t have any desire to see someone new in the band. 

The main reason why I would want former members to rejoin is their connection to Mal. Angus could probably hire any bassist or drummer he wants but they wouldn't be connected to the bands founder. Axl is the only exception I would make from that because of his involvment in 2016.

Beyond that though, there was a lot to enjoy as an AC/DC fan also. The shows were a solid 45 mins longer than your typical AC/DC gig with roughly 6-7 songs more every night than was typical with Brian

On my first listen now. Still haven’t bothered to order an LP edition, but I’ll go for the yellow if it’s still available. For right now I just have the light-up CD version. Super cool packaging, very

I just realized that the Rock Or Bust line-up hasn't played a single live show yet. That's nothing against Chris Slade and Axl (they were both fantastic) but I think those five musicians deserve a proper world tour more than anyone else after the Covid19 havoc.

Agreed. It was a nice start just to see Phil in the music video for Shot In The Dark since he missed all promotional material last time with Bob Richards filling in for the first two videos.

These pictures were uploaded on their website some minutes ago and immediately taken down again. That definitely confirms Brian, Cliff and Phil are back and they were working on something.

 

The damn album is called PWR/UP. Can't you rename the thread??

It's just a shortened version of the title :shrugs:

__________________________________

AC/DC will film a "virtual video" for the next single off the band's latest album "Power Up".

Released on November 13, "Power Up" features AC/DC's 2020 lineup of Brian Johnson (vocals), Phil Rudd (drums), Cliff Williams (bass), Angus Young (guitar) and Stevie Young (guitar). The LP was recorded over a six-week period in August and September 2018 at Warehouse Studios in Vancouver with producer Brendan O'Brien, who also worked 2008's "Black Ice" and 2014's "Rock Or Bust".

The news of AC/DC's next single and video was broken by Johnson, who released a video message earlier today thanking fans for their support since "Power Up" came out.

"We're gonna try to do a virtual video of the next song that we want to bring out off the album," he said (see video below). "The thing is, none of us have ever done this before, so it's gonna be brilliant, standing like a tit, by yourself, miming on a microphone because you know that we're miming, and we know that you know that we know that you know that we're miming, but still — it's gonna be fun. Angus is gonna be playing down in Sydney, Phil's gonna be whacking the drums in New Zealand, and Cliff's gonna be paddling away. He might even come up to join me, 'cause he's not too far down the road. And Stevie somewhere in England, I don't know. We hope to put an exciting video together."

It's on the fucking album cover. Ever saw a shortened album title on an album cover? Who cares what Blabbermouth writes? Check out AC/DC's instagram. All the graphics say PWR/UP.

What does it bothers you? You should write something useful here instead of complaining about a title

Because it's annoying. You have a thread dedicated to an album, but can't even bother to get the name right. Also Power up is lame. PWR/UP is cool. And there is no debate really, as to whether that is the name. It's obvious. So I am writing something useful. ;)

Not on ACDCs official streaming lol, "POWER UP" in all caps, is how it's listed there

Then they should fire whoever wrote that there. It's pedestrian and no eyes for details. All the graphics say PWR/UP. So that's the name.

It may well be the official name but it's also listed as POWER UP many times. If the OP want's to change the title he can. Let's leave it up to him.

Yes. Because people write it wrong. PWR/UP is written on the album. So there is no doubt about what is the actual name.

I literally just googled 'new acdc album' and a whole page came up with 'power up' so it's being used by the general media too. 

I KNOW IT'S CALLED PWR/UP. 

Now stop being pedantic and play nicely :)

Yeah. Like I said, because they write it wrong. Apparently even the douche who's responsible for AC/DCs online stuff, when all he needs to do is to check the actual album cover/graphic. Everything else is irrelevant. If it's not on the album cover, it's not the name.

And who's to say we are not playing nicely?

What would you call Led Zeppelin IV? Would it be just that or rather Zoso, Four Symbols, Untitled or something else?

Hint: That's a rhetorical question.

I know it's rethorical, but it's the nickname for an album that doesn't have a title. PWR/UP has one.

Yep, this. On top of this, every listing in their official shop says "POWER UP", other retail websites like Amazon say "POWER UP", Discogs has it listed as "Power Up", other music streaming and purchasing platforms like iTunes and Spotify say "POWER UP". "PWR/UP" is artistic license on the actual name of the album - it's essentially a flashy logo

Right. So they plaster the whole world full with the wrong album title. Also their designer got it wrong and they have written the wrong name on the actual album. :facepalm: Oh well, if you wanna believe that. Though it doesn't get much clearer than that:

The name is PWR/UP but they keep dumbing it down, so dimwitted people know how to pronounce that shit.

It isn't the wrong album title, it is a visual stylized version of the words "Power Up" and they are using both interchangeably on their official site

Would you verbally tell someone "hey man did you hear the new AC/DC album Power Up", or "hey man did you hear the new AC/DC album Pwwrr, lighting bolt icon, up"? :lol:

You are aware that we are NOT verbally communicating here?
