Dee Snider: New AC/DC album is coming

News 09/12/2019

Ex-singer for Twisted Sister, Dee Snider confirms that a new AC/DC album, featuring Malcolm Young recordings before his death, will be coming soon.

Snider says that the LP will feature all of the four surviving members, citing a recent meeting with Brian Johnson as evidence that the frontman was healthy despite the risk of total deafness that forced him to unexpectedly bow out of AC/DC's Rock or Bust tour in 2016.

Snider responded to a fan's query about AC/DC on Twitter saying, "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."

Speculations about the band's comeback started in 2018 when all four musicians plus Stevie were spotted in Vancouver near a studio that AC/DC had used in the past. Earlier this year, sound engineer Mike Fraser confirmed that the band are in the midst of recording in the studio.
