AC/DC: The Legendary Band Are Reported To Be Back In The Studio

After the release of their last album Rock or Bust in 2014, we didn't expect to see Australian hard rock band AC/DC back in the studio so soon. The group has had nothing but problems since their last release. While drummer Phil Rudd is in trouble with the New Zealand justice system which accused him of death threats and possession of drugs in 2015, Brian Johnson, the official singer since the death of Bon Scott in 1980, was forced to stop touring on the advice of doctors who warned him he could lose his hearing. He was provisionally replaced by Axl Rose. But in 2017, founding guitarist Malcolm Young, in treatment for dementia, died of the disease. Yet despite everything appearing to be lost for the legendary group, fans are speculating about a forthcoming comeback.

Their speculations aren't based on the words of Angus Young, aged 63, guitarist and last founding member of the group, as he hasn't yet spoken out on the subject, but on a photo posted on social media which has excited fans of the Australian group. In the photo, we see drummer Phil Rudd accompanied by Brian Johnson (who has perhaps now recovered) laughing in front of Warehouse Studios in Vancouver (Canada), where AC/DC recorded their last three disks. The Georgia Straight explains that several witnesses have also reported seeing Stevie Young in Vancouver, the nephew of Angus and Malcolm, who could have replaced the latter on the guitar.
