A new AC/DC album is on the way, containing material recorded by Malcolm Young before his death in 2017, according to former Twister Sister frontman, Dee Snider.

Speculation about AC/DC return to the studio kicked off in 2018 after they, along with Malcolm’s nephew Stevie – who replaced him for the band’s most recent tour, were seen leaving a studio in Vancouver they’d used in the past.

Then, earlier this year, the band’s longtime tech Mike Fraser confirmed they’d  been “doing something” in the studio.

Snider tweeted that the album would feature “all four surviving members”. We’re guessing he means Angus Young, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd.

“RIP Malcolm Young,” Snider said. “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.”

Replying to a fan’s query over Johnson’s health status – where he had to bow out of AC/DC’s Rock or Bust tour in 2016 due to risking deafness – Snider said: “Just saw Brian…he’s good.”
