AC/DC Premiere ‘Rock Or Bust’ Video
November 23, 2014
AC/DC have premiered the music video for “Rock Or Bust”, the second video from their upcoming album of the same name, in stores everywhere on December 2nd.
‘Rock Or Bust’ represents the band’s first studio album in six years and 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. ‘Rock Or Bust’ 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. There is no word yet if Phil Rudd will be joining the band on tour, as the drummer has found himself in legal troubles in his adoptive home of New Zealand.
“Well, we had a few problems,” guitarist Angus Young said about Rudd. “The situation he’s in — that took everyone by surprise. We had a few issues before with him, even when we were recording it was hard even to get to him to do the recording. And then he was supposed to show up to do promos with us, to do video shoots and a few shoots and a few other things, and he never showed up for that either. So, at this stage, it’s a pretty tough call for us.”
Police had initially accused Rudd of trying to arrange for a hit man to carry out two killings. Police had charged him with attempting to procure murder, which comes with a maximum 10-year sentence; the charge was dropped after a day. Rudd, 60, could face a maximum prison term of seven years for the charge of threatening to kill.
