New AC/DC album confirmed as ‘Black Ice’ – with October 21 release date in the UK


The title of AC/DC’s first studio album for eight years has been confirmed as Black Ice, as reported by Sh-Boom! Magazine on July 12. The album is now available for pre-order at a “special price” direct from the band’s web site:


Featuring the AC/DC line-up of Angus and Malcolm Young, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd, Black Ice is due out on October 21 in the UK, with the first single, ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Train’, set to be released at the end of August. The video for the single was reportedly filmed in London last week.


The band’s record label hints that it is lining up “multiple activities for fans” in the run-up to the album’s release.


Black Ice – which features 15 new tracks – is the follow-up to the veteran rockers’ 2000 album Stiff Upper Lip. In true AC/DC fashion, no less than four songs have “rock” in the title!


The new album was recorded at Bryan Adams’s studio in Vancouver, with producer Brendan O’Brien and long-time audio engineer Mike Fraser. It will be the band’s 15th studio album.


Formed in Sydney, Australia in 1973 by brothers Angus and Malcolm Young – still the most formidable electric guitar brotherhood in rock – AC/DC released their first album, High Voltage, in 1975. Since then, they’ve sold nearly 70 million albums in the US alone, making AC/DC one of the five best-selling bands in music history. The band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.


The full tracklisting for Black Ice is:


‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Train’
’Skies On Fire’
’Big Jack’
’Anything Goes’
