AC/DC Premiere New Single “Play Ball”
October 7, 2014
AC/DC have premiered the track “Play Ball”, the first single from the band’s upcoming album ‘Rock Or Bust’.
Due for release on December 2nd in North America, ‘Rock Or Bust’ represents the band’s first studio album in six years and first ever without guitarist Malcolm Young. By pre-ordering the eleven track album through iTunes you receive an instant download of the new single.
‘Rock Or Bust’ follows the immensely successful ‘Black Ice’ album, which debuted at #1 in 31 countries upon its release in 2008 and has gone on to sell nearly 8 million copies worldwide. The album was recorded at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, Canada and finds AC/DC once again working with producer Brendan O’Brien and mixer Mike Fraser.
‘Rock Or Bust’ is the first AC/DC album in the band’s 41 year history without founding member Malcolm Young on the recordings. Earlier this year AC/DC released a statement explaining that due to illness, Malcolm would be taking a break from the band. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm’s condition, he will not be returning. It was later revealed the rhythm guitarist suffers from demntia. According to the Young family connection: “If you were in the room with [Malcolm Young] and walked out then came back in one minute later he wouldn’t remember who you are. He has a complete loss of short term memory. His wife Linda has put him in full-time care.”
AC/DC will undertake a world tour in support of ‘Rock Or Bust’ in 2015. Stevie Young, nephew of founding members Angus and Malcolm Young, plays rhythm guitar on ‘Rock Or Bust’ and will accompany the band on tour.
