Dee Snider Confirms New AC/DC Album Is On Its Way
He Claimed That “All Four Surviving Members Have Reunited”
If part of AC/DC’s marketing strategy for their next album is to create so much hype, they are succeeding so far. Other people have been confirming a follow-up to 2014’s Rock or Bust but not one member from the group has said anything including frontman Brian Johnson. Recently, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider revealed that a new record is definitely on its way and will be out in 2020.
It all began with his post on Twitter that said, “I’m focused on one band for the 2021 Superbowl half time show: @acdc! Reuniting with new album next year, touring, celebrating 50 years together!”
He also confirmed that both bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd are back on the lineup. When someone asked about Malcolm Young, Snider tweeted: “He died. RIP Malcolm Young. But all four surviving members have reunited WITH tracks recorded by Malcolm while he was still alive. Malcolm’s nephew Stevie Young is replacing him (he’s done this a couple of times before). It’s as close as you can get to the original band.”
And of course, another fan brought up the issue of Johnson’s hearing problems which was the reason he was temporarily replaced by Axl Rose. Snider, however, set the record straight by writing: “Just saw Brian…he’s good.”
At some point, we just want someone from AC/DC to verify it already. But then again, it’s all part of the excitement, isn’t it? Imagine if one day they would just drop the album and announce their world tour. They’d break the internet, for sure.
